Match preview

Will Heart of Midlothian tighten their grip further on third place?

In their last league game, Robbie Neilson’s side held Dundee United to a 2-2 draw thanks to Craig Halkett’s late equaliser at Tannadice.

This was proceeded by back-to-back 2-0 wins, against St Mirren and Aberdeen, leaving the Jambos 13 points clear of fourth.

Since then, Heart of Midlothian have booked their place in the Scottish Cup semi-finals.

Last Saturday night, Beni Baningime and Peter Haring had them 2-0 in front early, only for St Mirren to fight back and level up the tie at 2-2.

Nevertheless, Aaron McEneff restored Hearts’ lead shortly after before Ellis Simms tapped in the clincher.

So, next month, Hearts will face city-rivals Hibs at Hampden for a place in the final; Celtic face Rangers in the other semi on derby weekend.

Remember, unless Hibs win the cup, Hearts’ third-place finish will guarantee European group stage football for the first time in club history.

There’s still plenty to play for so will the home fans be celebrating a win here?

Livingston meanwhile are also aiming to be in Europe next season, last enjoying that 20 years ago.

The Lions’ five-game unbeaten run came to an end a fortnight ago as they were beaten 3-1 by Celtic at the Tony Macaroni Arena.

Nevertheless, having won three out of five before this, David Martindale’s side are fifth, but the middle of the table could hardly be tighter.

ivi are one of six teams on either 37 or 36 points, so ever point counts with just three games to go before the split.

Will Hearts be too strong at Tynecastle?

The hosts are without defenders John Souttar, Michael Smith and Cameron Devlin as well as winger Gary Mackay-Steven due to injury.

So, last weekend, Stephen Kingsley filled in at centre-back with Andy Halliday deputising at left-back.

At the other end of the park, Liam Boyce has been enjoying playing in a number ten role, just in behind January signing Ellis Simms.

Davie Martindale’s men haven’t had a fixture for 13 days so should be raring to go.

Ayo Obileye and Jack Fitzwater are a very solid centre-back pairing.

Likewise, Stephane Omeonga and Jason Holt will sit just in front of the back four.

Bruce Anderson will continue to be the main goal threat and could return up front, displacing Joel Nouble.
