    See you tomorrow for more radio and text coverage from the Scottish Premiership.

  2. Heckingbottom happy with hard work

    FT: Livingston 1-2 Hibernian

    Hibernian boss Paul Heckingbottom

    "It was a tough game to watch at times, frustrating. But I can really see now why Livi have been such a tough nut to crack at home. Teams are starting to show them the respect they deserve. They made it difficult for us.They controlled the game in that respect and stopped us playing the way we wanted to play. We had to up the tempo and then all of a sudden the game becomes an awful lot easier."

    "I’m delighted with three points but we had to work extremely hard to get them."

    Paul Heckingbottom

    So, Hibs are up to fifth. Can they stay there? Can they climb higher. Hibs are at home to Kilmarnock and away to Hearts before the split.

    "We’re always chasing the team in front and we’ve gone up another place," says Heckingbottom. "Depending on results tomorrow we might be back down but hopefully not. We’ll target the next team. We want to win as many games as possible and finish as high up as possible."

  3. Holt laments defensive lapse

    FT: Livingston 1-2 Hibernian

    Livingston manager Gary Holt tells Sportsound that his team deserved something from the game but were let down by a sloppy moment at the back.

    "On the balance of play we created the better chances, but goals change games," he says. "If we had scored that first goal with the chances we had it's a different game.

    "We created good opportunities but the first goal is disappointing. When you see the goal back it's not acceptable. We got caught out a with the formation change but I think overall a draw would have been a fairer result. To be undone by that first goal is really poor. Those are things you work against."

  4. When Saturday comes

    FT: Livingston 1-2 Hibernian

    Before we hear from the manager's here's a reminder of tomorrow's fixtures

    • Heart of Midlothian v Aberdeen
    • Kilmarnock v Hamilton Academical
    • Motherwell v St Johnstone
    • St Mirren v Dundee

    That should be a cracker at Tynecastle and the tension will be sky-high in the basement battle in Paisley.

  5. 'Hard fought win' for Hibs

    FT: Livingston 1-2 Hibernian

    Hibs midfielder Stevie Mallan knocked in his 11th goal of the season and it was a lovely sight to behold. A beautiful touch to control a dropping ball, then a jink away from the defender before rolling in a composed shot at the near post.

    "It was a hard fought win." he says. "We're delighted with the three points. The gaffer made some changes and it worked. When the gaffer came in we were chasing top six. Now we're just chasing the team in front of us.

  7. Win takes Hibs above city rivals

    FT: Livingston 1-2 Hibernian

    That's 16 points from a possible 18 for Hibs boss Paul Heckingbottom, which is a very impressive start.

    It pushes the Easter Road side above Edinburgh rivals Hearts for the first time this season.

    Hearts are at home to Aberdeen tomorrow and the last game before the split is a derby at Tynecastle.

  8. FULL-TIME Livingston 1-2 Hibernian

    Hibs are up to fifth place as manager Paul Heckingbottom continues his unbeaten league run.

    The game came to life in the second half of the second half, with two quick-fire goals from Paul Hanlon and Stevie Mallan putting Hibs in charge.

    Livi put up a good fight in the closing stages but the penalty from Ryan Hardie came just too late.

  9. Post update

    Livingston 1-2 Hibernian

    Hibs are pinned in but a long ball up to Flo Kamberi earns them a foul in the centre circle. That should be it...

  10. Post update

    Livingston 1-2 Hibernian

    Hibs eat up a few valuable seconds by sending on Oli Shaw for Marc McNulty.

  11. GOAL Livingston 1-2 Hibernian

    Ryan Hardie

    We have an interesting four minutes of stoppage time on our hands as Ryan Hardie slams home the spot-kick.

  12. PENALTY

    Livingston 0-2 Hibernian

    Steven Lawson runs into Lewis Stevenson and Nick Walsh points to the spot.

    A bit soft? The fall was certainly exaggerated.

  13. Post update

    Livingston 0-2 Hibernian

    Stephen Robinson connects well with an overhead kick as the ball falls his way at a corner kick. He turns hopefully to see where it's gone, only to see it fly wide.

  14. CLOSE!

    Livingston 0-2 Hibernian

    Ryan Hardie is inches away from reducing the deficit as he hares after a long ball, cuts inside Darren McGregor, and lets fly with a curling strike from 22 yards.

  15. Livi 'knocked out'

    Livingston 0-2 Hibernian

    Former Hibernian manager on Sportsound

    Quote Message: The heart just seems to have been knocked out of Livingston. They need a goal to get back into it.
  16. Post update

    Livingston 0-2 Hibernian

    Marc McNulty comes off second best in a 50-50 with Alan Lithgow and falls heavily, clattering his head against the plastic turf. For a moment he looks in trouble but he's made of stern stuff and now he's back up and raring to go again.

  17. 'A wonderful goal from Mallan'

    Livingston 0-2 Hibernian

    Allan Preston

    BBC Scotland summariser on Sportsound

    Quote Message: It's a wonderful goal from Stevie Mallan. He just flips it over the Livingston defender and then he's one-on-one with the keeper. Do you think he can beat him... You better believe it!
  18. GREAT SAVE!

    Livingston 0-2 Hibernian

    Ofir Marciano leaps acrobatically to push over a header from Craig Sibbald as Livi look for a way back.

    Just before that Stevie Mallan goal, a volley from Stephen Robinson whizzed inches wide. Fine margins and all that...

    This is much more like it.

  19. GOAL Livingston 0-2 Hibernian

    Stevie Mallan

    A lovely touch from Stevie Mallan as the midfielder kills a high ball inside the penalty box and skips away from Declan Gallacher before sliding a shot inside the near post as Liam Kelly comes out to meet him.

    A classy goal.
