HIBS go into tomorrow’s lunchtime clash with Rangers determined to cut the gap on their second-placed opponents to four points.

It was the 3-1 win at Ibrox back in September which kick-started the Hibees’ season and they are 12/5 with McBookie.com to pick up three points at Easter Road tomorrow. Rangers can be backed at 21/20, with the draw 5/2.

With Rangers going through turmoil at the moment there is sure to be plenty of interest from punters in backing Hibs. A 1-0 victory is 12/1, while it is 20/1 for a 2-0 win. A repeat of the 3-1 scoreline can be backed at 28/1.

Jason Cummings was back on the scoresheet against Raith last weekend and he is 7/1 to score first or 85/40 to score anytime. Dominique Malonga is the most likely scorer for the home side and 13/2 to score first or 2/1 anytime. Scott Allan once again showed his class against Raith and he is 20/1 to score first.

Meanwhile, after going 12 points clear at the top of the table, McBookie.com have cut Hearts from 1/7 to 1/9 to lift the Championship title. Rangers have been pushed out to 5/1. And now punters are looking to back Hearts at 9/2 to go through the whole season undefeated.

And it should be another straightforward victory over Livingston tomorrow where the bookies make Hearts the red-hot 2/5 favourites. Livi can be backed at 13/2, with the draw 18/5.

Hearts have hammered the Lions 5-0 already this season and a similar scoreline can be backed at 40/1.

The handicap market is sure to be where most Hearts fans back their team and it is 21/20 minus one goal or 14/5 minus two goals.

James Keatings is now the 5/1 joint favourite with team-mate Osman Sow to end the season as top scorer in the league following his seventh strike of the season against Cowdenbeath put him level with the Swede.

Keatings is 7/2 favourite to score first tomorrow. Callum Paterson, who has been on the scoresheet in his last two games, is 12/1 to score first.
