Hibs v St Johnstone: Scottish Cup Final - how to watch Jack Ross, Kevin Nisbet and Paul McGinn try to emulate the 2016 Hampden win
Jack Ross faces Callum Davidson at Hampden for the second time this season – but this time the Scottish Cup is at stake on Saturday.
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.

Blackpool v Huddersfield Town - live updates
Wow, it’s a goal out of nothing for the away side.
It’s a fantastic strike though, it has to be said. Josh Koroma absolutely thunders the ball home from 25 yards. Chris Maxwell actually looked to be taken aback by the strike.
Harsh on Blackpool.
A long throw into the Blackpool box falls kindly for Daniel Sinani, whose low goalbound effort is straight at Chris Maxwell.
A good controlled display from the Seasiders, but no breakthrough yet. The visitors have offered very little. There’s been a few moans and groans from the away end, which is always a good sign.
After offering virtually nothing all half, the away side almost take the lead with the final action of the half. Daniel Sinani is allowed to surge towards the edge of the Pool box, where his long-range effort deflects and wrongfoots Chris Maxwell.
Thankfully it bounces inches wide.
There will be just one minute of time added on at the end of the first-half.
Huddersfield pump the ball into the Blackpool box from a wide free-kick, but the Seasiders deal with it well. The away side have a throw-in though.
Richard Keogh throws his body on the line to make a superb block from Daniel Sinani.
Pool break and win a corner after Ryan Wintle’s long-range effort deflected up and out.
The referee is getting a little fussy, blowing for some fairly innocuous comings-together. It’s making for a stop-start affair.
Shayne Lavery goes close at the near post from Luke Garbutt’s corner. The Pool fans think it’s gone in, but unfortunately it bounced the wrong side of the post.
