Match preview

For the second time this season, Hibernian are looking for a new manager.

Last weekend, the Hibees' Scottish Cup dreams were shattered by bitter rivals Heart of Midlothian in an Edinburgh Derby at Hampden.

Some Hibs were fans were starting to head for the exits when Hearts went 2-0 up, only for Chris Cadden to halve the deficit straight away.

However, Hibs could not find an equaliser and had Joe Newell sent off to compound a miserable afternoon.

Following the game, Shaun Maloney was sacked as Head Coach, having won just six of his 19 matches in charge.

In the Premiership, Hibernian have won just one of 13 matches in 2022, which leaves them seventh, thereby ending up in the bottom half.

Hibs therefore can't qualify for Europe with a seventh-placed finish the best they can hope for.

St Mirren meanwhile are just two points below their visitors but their aim is to fend off relegation.

Stephen Robinson's side were hammered 4-0 by Rangers last time out, meaning they've lost three in a row and six of their last seven.

The Buddies only victory since Robinson took over came against bottom of the table Dundee, in which Connor Ronan headed home a 93rd minute winner.

So, St Mirren are just one place and six points clear of St Johnstone who currently occupy the relegation play-off spot.
