There is no getting away from the discontent surrounding Edinburgh's Premiership clubs.

On Saturday, Hibs were booed from the park after letting a two-goal lead slip at home to Ross County, while Hearts failed to capitalise on a 40-minute man advantage, drawing 0-0 with Livingston.

Both sides are in midweek action before they head to Hampden Park for the Betfred Cup semi finals.

Come Saturday evening, however, Hearts and Hibs - currently 9th and 11th respectively - could be propping up the table if results go a certain way.

That is reflected in the odds on the next Ladbrokes Premiership manager to leave their post.

McBookie place the Paul Heckingbottom (5/2) and Craig Levein (5/1) as the first and third favourite to be first boss sacked.

They are split by Aberdeen's Derek McInnes whose odds shortened after the 4-0 defeat to Celtic.

Both Edinburgh sides have now played ten leagues games and have amassed a combined two wins.
