Christian Doidge scored for Hibs for the first time since December

Christian Doidge’s first goal in 16 games earned Hibernian a draw at Livingston and strengthened their grip on third place in the Scottish Premiership.

Craig Sibbald had given Livingston the lead after capitalising on a short back pass from Ryan Porteous.

But that was cancelled out just before half time as Doidge finished neatly after good work by teenager Josh Doig.

Hibs are now seven points clear in third, while Livingston stay fifth.
