Hibs assess John McGinn, Jason Cummings & Liam Henderson before Livingston clash

Hibernian are without Dominique Malonga for the Ladbrokes Championship clash with Livingston as the Congo striker is on international duty.

Hibs will assess John McGinn, Jason Cummings and Liam Henderson after they played for Scotland Under-21s on Friday night. Dylan McGeouch should return from a groin injury while Henri Anier and Adam Eckersley are pushing for involvement.

Hibs will move two points off leaders Rangers if they make it eight wins in a row and defender Paul Hanlon told STV: "We've got a lot of ability in the squad - couple that with high confidence and we are going to do well. We have got a great work ethic as well - everybody works so hard for each other.

"We are all best pals in there and I would probably say that's the first time since I've been here that everyone is so close and you can see that on the pitch."

Livingston are without four injured players as Craig Sives (back), Darren Cole (knee), Danny Mullen (hamstring) and Moses Druckell (thigh) all miss out.

Manager Mark Burchill is looking for his men to bounce back after losing 1-0 to Morton in their last outing.

"We had moved off the bottom of the table after winning against Queen of the South and Raith Rovers but suffered a disappointment at Cappielow," he said.

"We had chances but never took them and if we are to do anything against a Hibs side bang in form we have to be strong defensively and ruthless in front of goal."
