Hibs vs St Johnstone injury and team news as six out and three doubts for Scottish Premiership clash

Nick Montgomery’s side return to Easter Road with hopes of securing a top-six spot before the split.

Hibs will look to get back to winning ways when they welcome St Johnstone to Easter Road on Saturday. Nick Montgomery’s side were well beaten at an in-form Rangers last weekend, with Myziane Maolida’s effort mere consolation in a 3-1 defeat at Ibrox.

Hibs have just two games left to secure their spot in the top-six ahead of the April split, and currently sit a point behind Dundee in the final place with games against two bottom-half sides to come. Montgomery will likely need at least four points to climb into the top-half and will look at Saturday’s home clash as the one to win.

A run of six unbeaten before last week’s defeat to Rangers was all the more impressive, given Hibs have been without a number of players. Long-term injuries and short-term issues have made it much harder for Montgomery to name a full-strength side but he is hoping to welcome some back this weekend.

St Johnstone are not without their own fitness issues either and below, the EEN has taken a look at both side’s injury list ahead of Saturday’s clash.
