Of course, whether supporters can travel abroad with their side will depend on Covid restrictions lifting, but that did not stop the Hibees faithful from reacting with delight to the win, which keeps them on course for a third place finish with three games remaining.

Hibs had a two-goal cushion at the break thanks to Kevin Nisbet’s eight minute opener and a Martin Boyle penalty but the visitors were awarded a penalty of their own five minutes from time which Jay Emmanuel-Thomas converted to set up a more nervy finish than Hibs fans were hoping for.

Here are a selection of comments from supporters:

The i newsletter cut through the noise

Steven Nicol (@stevehibby): All about the points but cmon after such a good 1st half we just stopped passing the ball 2nd half and nearly threw all the hard work away. Keep playing

Dougie HFC 21/5/16 (@21_dougie): Pheeeeewwwww! Watching the clock from 46 mins. Martin won it but special mention for Gogic who saw us through it when it got really hairy

David James Macniven (@davidjmac): 3 points all that really matter but jeez we dinnae half make it hard for ourselves sometimes!

Graham (@GISALEGEND): 3rd could be as good as sealed tonight if Celtic beat Aberdeen. Would be 3 games with a 7 point lead but still to play each other. Aberdeen still have rangers we have Celtic. A European journey till Xmas could be upon us which would mean a lot for our fans.

JackGillies1875 (@JackGillies6): Solid result in the end. First half we played some fantastic stuff and were unlucky not to be 3/4 up in the 2nd Livi came into the game more and made us sweat a bit but in the end we deserved the win. Absolutely massive 3 points Europe we are coming

Lee Martin (@leem912): A Hibs win and a season ticket bought for next year. What a night

Matt | Reidy16 (@Reidy16_): Anyone know how to renew a passport?
