Hearts grabbed a late equaliser to salvage a point against Livingston at Tynecastle.

Former Hibs man Marvin Bartley got things underway on the scoresheet for Livi. His volley from close range after a long throw in looked like enough to settle the Gorgie clash.

Steven MacLean fired an equaliser in two minutes from time though to make sure Hearts didn’t walk away from the clash empty handed. It’s still a decent point for Livingston who await their since their historic victory over Celtic in October.

For Hearts, whilst complete disaster was averted at the death, it still isn’t ideal. They’re now joint-11th instead of bottom, hardly anything to cheer for.

The Jambos have still won just two of their 15 Premiership games this term. It simply isn’t good enough for a club of their size.

The bottom six looks like the reality for them this season and the new manager now, although sixth place Hibs losing away to Ross County keeps them in touching distance as the Leith side have a seven-point gap. A relegation scrap looks more likely on current form though.

Something has to change and quickly at Tynecastle as results like this simply can’t continue as they hurtle towards the Premiership’s basement. Some Hearts fans haven’t taken the draw kindly.
