We continue our run of games against the promotion hopefuls when we host Hibernian at Central Park with a 3 p.m.
After a slow start to their Championship campaign Alan Stubbs’ side now occupy second spot in the table and also have a William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final to look forward to next month against Falkirk.
So far the Hi-bees have held the upper hand in our previous meetings with three wins out of three.
Back in September we led 2-1 at Easter Road with 12 minutes to go but eventually lost 3-2 to an injury time goal from Jason Cummings.
Jordan Forster had given Hibs a half time lead but early second half goals from Sean Higgins and Jon Robertson put us in front before Dominique Malonga equalised from the penalty spot on his debut.
The return game at Central Park on a wet November afternoon saw Paul Hanlon and Cummings score in the first half for Hibs while Robertson was once again on target for us in the 2-1 defeat.
Our second trip to Easter Road in January saw us go down 5-0 with the goals coming from Hanlon, Cummings, Scott Robertson, Callum Booth and Lewis Stevenson.
Colin Nish will miss the game against his old side after picking up his sixth yellow card in the defeat against Hearts a fortnight ago and he serves a one game ban, however Lewis Toshney who was suspended last Saturday is once again eligible for selection.
Last Saturday saw us get a welcome point in a goal less draw at Central Park which allowed us to move out of the play-off spot after Alloa went down 1-0 to Dumbarton.

Hibs arrive at Central Park with the second best away record in the Championship with only runaway league leaders Hearts having taken more points on the road this season.
The Easter Road side, are currently on a 14 game unbeaten run in the Championship and William Hill Scottish Cup and last tasted defeat on 6th December when an injury time goal gave Falkirk a 1-0 home win.
Since then they have only dropped 4 points following draws against Hearts and Raith Rovers and have won their last six games with Livingston’s late goal on Wednesday being the first time they failed to keep a clean sheet since conceding a goal against Arbroath in the William Hill Scottish Cup on 7th February.
