Hibernian vs Livingston lineups

Hibernian

Hibernian suffered a humiliating 5-0 loss at the hands of Aston Villa a few days ago; they've had mixed results lately, with two wins, a draw and two losses in their last five matches. Lee Johnson will hope to guide his team back to winning ways as Livingston come to town. Unfortunately, Hibs will have to do without Chris Cadden, Joe Wollacott and Harry McKirdy.

Predicted lineups: Marshall, Megwa, Harbottle, Hanlon, Obits, Boyle, Jeggo, Campbell, You an, Fondre, Doidge.

Livingston

On the other hand, Livingston defeated Ayr by two unreplied goals a couple of days ago; they've enjoyed a fairly decent run of form recently, with three wins, a draw and a loss in their last five matches. Livi will set their sights on all three available points as they make the trip to Easter Road. Unlike today's opponents, there are no players sidelined for Livingston today.

Predicted lineups: George, Lucas, Obileye, Devlin, Pendrive, Guthrie, Holt, Shinnie, Montano, Kelly, Nouble.

Starting lineups

*Lineups will be automatically updated shortly after they're announced.

Player to watch: Adam Le Fondre

Granted, these teams aren't exactly high-scoring sides. While Livingston have not scored any goals in the Premiership this season, Hibs have scored thrice in two matches. Interestingly, two of those goals were scored by Adam Le Fondre. The 36 year old has two goals and one assist in his last four appearances for Hibernian, and we believe it's worth keeping an eye out for him.
