Match Report

We’re back at Easter Road for the first time since the end of February – and it couldn’t be more timely as the battle for third in the Scottish Premiership continues.

Fifth-placed Livingston make the short trip to Leith knowing their hopes of a European place are all but mathematically over, but Hibs remain firmly in the driving seat to secure third spot and Europa League football next term.

Four points separate the Hibees and Aberdeen in fourth and, with the Dons in action at home to Celtic at 7.45pm on Wednesday, Jack Ross’ men can heap huge pressure on them by claiming all three points at Livi’s expense in the earlier kick-off.

It will be a welcome home game for Hibs, who last played at Easter Road on February 27 when Motherwell were the visitors and ran out 2-0 winners.

Since then though, the Hibees have seen their form improve markedly and they go into Wednesday evening’s clash with just one defeat in their last five games in all competitions – and even that was a game at Ibrox which they should arguably have taken at least a point from.

The head-to-head record between Hibs and Livi shows a win a-piece and a draw, with that draw coming last time out on March 20 when Christian Doidge’s equaliser cancelled out Craig Sibbald’s opener.

Livi’s last visit to Easter Road back in January saw them run out 3-0 winners thanks to goals by Josh Mullin, Jon Guthrie and Scott Robinson.

However, Hibs will be hoping the scoreline will be more like the opening encounter between the teams back in August, when a hat-trick from Kevin Nisbet and a Christian Doidge effort helped the Hibees to a fine 4-1 success.

All fans should remember not to travel to the game as per Scottish Government guidelines on Covid-19, and enjoy it via Hibs TV or on Pay Per View.
