Hibs are in very good form. Unbeaten in six league games, with four wins and two draws, it is their longest run of games without lossing since September 2021, when Jack Ross was in charge. Livi, on the other hand have lost two league games and are looking to avoid three straight consecutive defeats for the first time since April.
Livin have won each of their last three home league games against Hibs, their longest ever home winning run over the Leith team in the top-flight. But Hibs defeated Livi 4-0 at Easter Road on Christmas Eve to end a run of four straight league defeats to the Lions.
