THE Edinburgh derby falls under Gavin Murphy’s (@GamePlanGavin) radar on Sunday. What’s getting him excited?
Hearts v Hibs | Sunday 12:30 | Sky Sports 2
Scottish Cup action catches my eye on Sunday lunchtime with the Edinburgh derby between Hearts and Hibs.
The past six meetings between these old rivals read 7-7-6-11-4-5. In all of these matches the majority of cards come in the second half with the figures 5-4-6-8-3-4.
Craig Thomson gets the whistle for this showdown. He averages 4.57 cards per game this year. To be fair though that probably has little relevance in a fiery affair like this should be. The whisteblower will want to keep things tight in the first half you would imagine.
With 5/6 recent meetings between these two teams having over 3 cards shown in the second half there is a strong case for backing that again especially given the do or die nature of a cup tie. I’m getting involved with over 3 cards in the second half at even money with William Hill.
