Livingston were given a midweek rest after their match against Ross County ended up being postponed, meaning they should head into the weekend fresher than their opponents.
That is an advantage that the Lions will be looking to exploit after six matches without a victory, a run of form that has left the club at the bottom of the league table.
Livingston trail safety by four points, which is a gap that they need to shrink sooner rather than later if they want to avoid allowing it to get too big.
Finding the back of the net is something that the Lions need to work on to change their fortunes considering the fact they have scored just nine times this season, which is the lowest in the entire division.
Despite that, the last time they faced Hibernian led to Livingston getting one of their two victories of the season after they came out on top of a five-goal thriller, which should give the team some confidence.
That was a game the Hibees would prefer to forget as Martin Boyle and Josh Campbell’s goals were not enough to get them any points that day.Hibernian will also be looking to move
past their midweek performance as they were comfortably defeated by Celtic in a 4-1 loss, with Christian Doidge’s goal being nothing more than a consolation in the second half.
Nick Montgomery’s team are still in a position where they could climb into the top four this weekend if they pick up a win, with the team just a point behind St Mirren as they trail Hearts by two.
However, Hibernian have been weaker in away matches, particularly from a defensive perspective as they have conceded 17 times on the road this season.
Considering the fact that Livingston have struggled for goals, that poor form is something that the Hibees will be attempting to change this time around
