The Scottish Premiership clash between Livingston and Hibernian on May 19th, 2024, at Tony Macaroni Arena, promises an intriguing contest despite the season's end approaching.

With Livingston relegated and Hibernian aiming to finish at the top of the relegation group, the stakes remain high.

Match Preview

Livingston

Livingston, with nothing to lose, might play with a newfound freedom that could pose challenges for Hibernian.

Their recent performance, however, suggests otherwise. In their midweek fixture, Livingston suffered a heavy 5-1 defeat against Aberdeen, despite initially leading through Tete Yengi's goal.

Manager David Martindale will likely use this game to prepare for the next season and assess his squad's potential.

Hibs

On the other hand, Hibernian is coming off a confident 3-0 victory over Motherwell. Goals from Martin Boyle and Myziane Maolida have bolstered their spirits.

David Gray's side, currently second in the relegation group, still has a lot to play for.

Hibernian has defeated Livingston in both of their previous encounters this season without conceding, which will add to their confidence.

However, they might miss James Penrice due to injury. Hibernian might continue with Joe Wollacott in goal, with David Marshall not recalled in the midweek game.

Martin Boyle, after his impressive brace, is likely to retain his starting position, and Dylan Vente is expected to be the lone striker.
