Hibs V Livingston

Last updated : 13 August 2005 By Dov

Livingston welcome back midfielders Jason Dair from injury and Richard Brittain from suspension. Paul Lambert could make his Livi debut in the centre of midfield.

Gabor Vince, Harald Pinxten and Greg Strong all face late fitness tests.

Hibs Striker Derek Riordan is set to start after injury and midfielder Scott Brown is back from suspension.

Defender Gary Caldwell is missing with a rib injury and punctured long, so new signing Humphrey Rudge could make his first competitive start.

Recent respective form guides

Hibernian's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While The Hibees have scored 7, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Livingston's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the Livi have hit 6 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Hibernian are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 1 points from 2 matches. Livingston find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 2 games have yielded only 0 points.
