Hibs were promoted back into the SPFL in 2016-17 season after spending a couple of years in the Championship - they were relegated in 2014.
Terry Butcher was sacked and then replaced by Alan Stubbs, but he was however unable to lead them to promotion. Stubbs was able to guide them to a league cup final in which they lost to Ross County, but they would lift a cup the following season by beating Rangers in the Scottish Cup.
Stubbs left Hibernian to Join Rotherham United and was then replaced by Neil Lennon. Lennon helped the Edinburgh club to the Championship title and promotion in his first term as manager, and in his first season in the top flight he managed to guide them to a top 4th finish. Lennon left the club in January and was replaced by Paul Heckingbottom. Heckingbottom won his first home game in charge against Hamilton.
Dundee are still without long term injuries Meekings, Hamilton and Davies. Still waiting on news to see if Nelson has recovered from an injury which he picked up in the 2-1 win against Livingston last weekend.
Last Time Out
The last time these two sides met were on 24th November 2018 which saw Jim McIntyre’s side claw back a 2-2 draw after finding themselves down 2 nil at the Break.
An own goal from Kusunga in the first minute saw the Dee with what seemed an uphill struggle afterwards. A Porteous goal on the 30th minute saw Hibs go into a commanding lead just before the interval, however K Miller clawed a goal back right on the death of half-time to make it 2-1.
Dundee came out the traps in the second half with some steely determination, and it only took a few minutes into the second half for Paul McGowan to stun the home support with a fine left-foot curling ball past Bogdan to bring the score to level pegging.
Both side had good changes to take the lead in what was a very entertaining game, but a point a piece seemed a fair result.
Still to be announced.

Steve Mallan was a Dundee target when manager Paul Hartley put in a bid for the St Mirren wonderkid, these were rejected and Hartley failed to sign him.
