Edinburgh, Scotland – Hibernian snapped a five-game winless 1 win at Kilmarnock. And manager Pat Fenlon is hoping his team can move further away from the bottom of the league with a good result at home against St Mirren on Saturday.
Hibs moved three points clear of last-place Dunfermline with the win, which was the club's fourth away from home this season.
But Fenlon's side will be trying to turn around a poor run of results at home this season, having claimed only one win at Easter Road this campaign.
St Mirren is ninth but has gone eight games in the league without a win, with a lack of goals in recent matches being the main culprit.
The club has scored one goal in its last five games, but has managed to earn draws from its last four matches thanks to a strong defense.
Celtic is riding a 17-game winning streak and hopes to extend the mark when the club visits Pittodrie Stadium to face Aberdeen.
Dunfermline is on the bottom of the league having gone winless in seven games and will host Motherwell, which trails second-place Rangers by six points following a 1-0 defeat to Celtic last time out.
St Johnstone is fourth entering the weekend and travels to Kilmarnock to face a Killie team that has lost two successive games, Rangers aims to capture three more points against Hearts and the weekend's round concludes on Monday with Dundee United trying to extend its unbeaten streak to six games when the club welcomes Inverness to Tannadice Park.
