      Hibernian vs Alloa Athletic Predictions

      Hibenian come into this game eight points adrift of the Championship leaders in 2nd place, although they do have a game in hand over Rangers.

      Alloa Athletic look destined for relegation from the Championship already. They prop up the table after picking up just 13 points from their 24 games so far, and they are four points adrift of the relegation playoff position and nine points off safety. They have marginally improved over the last couple of months, but their record of two wins, two draws, and six defeats in their last ten outings still isn’t good enough.

      Reasons for Betting Tips

      Hibernian have only conceded in three of their eight matches against Alloa Athletic, and given the visitors’ scoring record so far this season I wouldn’t be surprised if another clean sheet was on the cards here. Alloa Athletic have only scored 13 league goals so far this season and have failed to score in five of their last eight games in all competitions.

      Hibernian have the joint best defensive record in the Championship having only shipped 17 goals so far this season, and only seven of those have come on home turf. Five of their last nine games in all competitions have seen them keep a clean sheet, and the odds of them achieving another on Sunday are considerably increased because of the attacking deficiencies of the opposition.

      Hibernian, unlike Rangers, seem to focus on efficient results and picking up all three points rather than emphatic 5-0 victories. This means that a fairly low scoring match could be on the cards, and 2-0 looks like a good correct score prediction to me.
