Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
High-flying Hibernian will be looking to extend their winning run to four games when they host Livingston at their Easter Road Stadium on Matchday 28. The Hibs have been scoring goals for fun in all competitions of late, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play in Saturday’s football game. January signing Greg Docherty, who opened his goal-scoring account in the 2-1 win over Kilmarnock, will be one of the men to watch in the home team.
The Lions, on the other hand, produced a fine performance in a 1-0 loss at Rangers, but they extended their losing run on the road to three games. Considering that the Hibs are brimming with confidence ahead of the Easter Road Stadium showdown, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. Livingston defeated Hibernian 2-0 in their last meeting in the Premiership, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
