Livingston 1-2 Hibernian: Stevie Mallan winner sends Hibs fifth

Paul Hanlon

Stevie Mallan netted a superb winner as Hibernian beat Livingston to move above Hearts for the first time this season in the Scottish Premiership.

Hibs defender Paul Hanlon sparked a dull match to life in 71 minutes, lashing home following a corner.

And Mallan skinned Declan Gallagher to add a classy second before Ryan Hardie netted an injury-time penalty for Livi.

Hibs, who replace Hearts in fifth, are now unbeaten in the league under Paul Heckingbottom after six games.

They remain well on course for a top-six finish with two games to play before the split, having collected 16 points out of 18 since Heckingbottom took charge.

Livi, who had a chance to level before Mallan's goal when Scott Robinson fired wide, stay ninth.
