Martin Boyles late equaliser may have saved Paul Heckingbottoms job.

Hibs fans are still adamant Paul Heckingbottom is on borrowed time despite the team’s fightback against Livingston.

Here is a selection of post-match tweets.

@Steve_Hibees: “Embarrassing. Hamilton, Ross County and Livingston. 3 points out of 9.”

@R11Loading: “Don’t let that cover the cracks. Get him out. Give us our club back.”

@HibsNZ: “Hibs 2 nil down at Tynie, come back and draw 2 each. Gives (Jim) Duffy a stay of execution, Hibs get relegated! He (Heckingbottom) has still got ta go!”

@PenicuikHibs: “That was a bit of a shocker tbh...we could have scored more with some clinical finishing, but then so could Livi, who will feel hard done by. 9 pts from 11 games, that’s equivalent to 3 wins with 8 games having nothing to show for...paints a sorry picture.”

@Joe_Cullen_9: “Never thought I’d say it but I’m gutted we came back to draw, Boyle just saved hecky’s job.”

@CraigThomas18: “Saturday is the last chance he'll have to save his job... And even that's just cause there's only 3 days and the board won't sack him before a cup semi final.”

@GISALEGEND: “Well after Saturday I didn't expect us to suddenly do a County, the cup semi could be a painful experience, but have to hope we can pull a miracle somewhere. Fair play to Boyle back in the fold & makes the difference.”

@QMUW1: “10 pts behind Motherwell already. Seriously poor and its taken a player who’s been out injured to come back and rescue this “team” of major underperformers! The summer signings and performances are an embarrassment.”

@DeanOsborn: “Poor overall - but a good fight back and a point hard earned.”

@StevieBroon78: “Great to come back from 2 down, and brilliant to have Boyle back. But for the love of god, surely the board will see that this is just papering over the cracks. Heckingbottom has got to go, now.”

@GoKeeperUK: “Welcome back Boyler.. on the pitch 10mins and makes an impact.”
