Hibs v St Johnstone: Scottish Cup Final - how to watch Jack Ross, Kevin Nisbet and Paul McGinn try to emulate the 2016 Hampden win
and live on Freeview channel 276
Both were semi-finalists in the League Cup earlier this year and Saints went on to life the trophy and are now seeking a cup double – unprecedented in the club’s history.
Hibs last win the cup in 2016, two years after the Saints and both sides are keen to add their name back onto the trophy.
There was almost a green and white contingent at Hampden for the showpiece event – but Glasgow’s tier rating and restrictions mean all supporters will be watching at home on TV for the second Scottish Cup final in a row.
Here’s all you need to know and how to tune in as Jack Ross tries to add silverware to this season’s third-placed finish.
Who: St Johnstone v Hibs
What: Scottish Cup Final
Where: National Stadium, Hampden Park
When: 2pm, Saturday, May 22, 2021
How to watch
St Johnstone: DLWWDDWLWW
This will be the sixth meeting of the sides this season, adding to four league clashes and the League Cup semi-final at Hampden when the Perth side triumphed 3-0.
St Johnstone have the upper hand overall winning three of those meetings, with one ending in a 2-2 draw and Hibs landing the first blow in August 1-0 at McDiarmid Park.
But overall Hibs have won 64 meetings beside the sides, to Saints’ 47 and 35 draws.
How they got there

Blackpool v Huddersfield Town - live updates
- FT: Blackpool 0-3 Huddersfield Town
- Seasiders aiming to make it back-to-back league wins
- Ollie Turton set to make his return to Bloomfield Road after surprise summer exit
The Seasiders are ruthlessly punished, conceding three goals in just 14 minutes at the start of the second-half. A harsh lesson for Neil Critchley’s men.
Welcome back to the Championship, eh?
90 - Denied
Almost a goal back for Pool as Shayne Lavery latches onto Josh Bowler’s through-ball, only to be denied by keeper Lee Nicholls.
Bowler then whistles a sublime shot just wide of the upright.
88 - Final stages
Not a great deal to report here. The game was virtually done by the 60-minute mark.
Pool are still getting forward and trying to reduce the arrears, but Huddersfield are dealing with them fairly comfortably.
A lot of Pool fans have already made their journey to the exits.
82 - Final change
Dujon Sterling is on for his Blackpool debut, replacing Jordan Gabriel.
73 - Change
Gary Madine makes his return, replacing Tyreece John-Jules.
Pool know the game is done, but they’re still plugging away. They deserve credit for that.
62 - Goal Huddersfield (0-3)
Pool fail to clear their lines and they’re punished once again. Jonathan Hogg the man to drill past Chris Maxwell from the edge of the box following some confusion among the Pool ranks.
This is getting ridiculous.
56 - Changes
Keshi Anderson replaces Jerry Yates, which sees Tyreece John-Jules move into a more central position.
Ollie Turton is also on for the visitors.
54 - Goal Huddersfield (0-2)
The away side double their lead, scrambling the ball over the line from close range after Pool failed to deal with a dangerous corner. Matty Pearson looks to be the man who got the final touch.
This is so harsh on the Seasiders.
51 - Close again!
Shayne Lavery’s stoops low to meet Luke Garbutt’s corner, but his header loops agonisingly over. So close!
50 - Good response
Pool, roared on by the North Stand, have responded well to the setback.
Shayne Lavery goes to ground in the Huddersfield, but the referee ignores Pool’s penalty appeals. The striker then goes close at the near post.
