The last time Hibs got anything from a league fixture at Pittodrie was when Craig Thomson was in charge way back on Sunday 27 January 2013. On that occasion, the match ended goalless, however, for those of you who have long memories Jake McPake, Gary Deegan, David Wotherspoon, and Leigh Griffiths ended up receiving cautions during a bad-tempered affair. Dons midfielder Peter Pawlett also saw yellow.
