Predicted Hibs XI v Hearts – with two changes and a different shape

Hibs cross the city to face Hearts at Tynecastle Park on Saturday in the last Scottish Premiership match of the season.

Lee Johnson’s team must win to overtake their Capital rivals and finish fourth, which guarantees European football next season. A draw or defeat would mean finishing fifth and relying on Celtic to win the Scottish Cup in order get a European place in an earlier round.

Wednesday’s pulsating 4-2 victory over champions Celtic at Easter Road means Hibs go into the game on a high but the manager also has a few injury concerns to weigh up. Johnson opted for a 5-3-2 formation in the first half against Celtic, but he’s unlikely to go with that against Hearts. This is the team we believe he’ll go with.
