After having the unenviable task of traveling to Celtic Park on Wednesday, can Livingston claim their their first post-World Cup points.
Davie Martindale’s team were beaten 2-1 in Glasgow in mid-week and, in fairness, were competitive throughout.
Ayo Obileye broke the deadlock with an own goal, with Nicky Devlin halving the deficit mere seconds after Celtic had gone 2-0 up.
Nevertheless, that ended Livingston’s three-match unbeaten streak, leaving them sixth.
Hibernian meantime are back in action for the first time in nine days, after having over a week to rue a defeat at Ibrox.
The Hibees led twice in Glasgow, thanks to Ryan Porteous and then Kevin Nisbet, but were still beaten 3-2.
Lee Johnson’s side have now lost four in a row, and seven of their last eight, only beating St Mirren since 8 October.
This leaves Hibs down in eighth place, which is simply not good enough.
Will they claim three crucial points in this Christmas Eve clash at Easter Road?
