Hibs’ Head Coach Neil Lennon believes that a second place finish would be an ‘incredible achievement’ for a promoted side.
A victory at Pittodrie would move Hibs above Aberdeen and Lennon is anticipating a tough game.
Rangers are also still in the running and the former Celtic boss knows only too well that they can’t be written off.
Hibs will take a huge travelling support north tomorrow and Lennon insists that ‘speaks volumes’ for how well they are doing this season.
Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Lennon said: “We are looking forward to the game but we know how difficult Aberdeen, particularly at home can be. They are one of the more mentally strong teams in the country and they have proved that over the last three or four years.
“They have a manager who is good at getting results. we singled out this game as being the toughest one of the five (After the split)
“Taking a big crowd to Pittodrie speaks volumes about how well we are doing. It’s a long way to go for a game and we are playing against a very good side.
“Every game is different and every game has its own circumstances and styles of play and you have to try and combat everyone.
“We have only lost two games away from home in over a year now and that’s to Celtic and Aberdeen.
“We have put a marker down with our style of play and we are no pushovers now. Any team that lays Hibs know they have been in a game.
“The players are finding a really good momentum at the moment but we know that can flip on one game but we are trying to keep them in that mood.
“If we can finish second it will be an incredible achievement for a team that’s just been promoted.
“You can’t right off Rangers, they are capable of winning games but psychologically they have been damaged enormously.”
