Ayo Obileye’s Equaliser Helps Livingston Get 3-2 Win Away To Hibernian


Livingston of Scotland defender, Ayo Obileye struck an 18th minute equaliser that conyributed largely to his team’s romp from behind to win away to Hibernian in the Scottish Premiership.

Megasportsarena.com reports that Obileye made the best of his role from central defence to stir Livy back into the game, but it was Alan Forrest that struck the winner.

Both goals were decisive in turning the tempo of the game, as Livingston twice came from behind to pull off an impressive 3-2 victory away to The Hibs.

Recent signing Demetri Mitchell and Chris Cadden scored for the hosts but those goals were cancelled out by visiting centre-backs Obileye and Jack Fitzwater respectively.

The Hibs made four changes to the side that started the goalless draw at Motherwell in midweek as Ryan Porteous, Mitchell, Ewan Henderson and Christian Doidge replaced Joe Newell, Rocky Bushiri, Chris Mueller and Josh Doig.

There were two alterations to the Livingston side that lost 1-0 at Rangers on Wednesday as Joel Nouble and Forrest replaced Andrew Shinnie and Bruce Anderson in attack.

Hibs had the first chance after five minutes when Doidge headed against the post from a Henderson cross.

The hosts went ahead a minute later when Cadden’s cross from the right found its way to the back post and Mitchell prodded it in from close range.

Obileye, who had been ready to take the penalty, got his chance to get on the score sheet in the 19th minute when he beat Macey to a free-kick delivery from Bailey and sent a high looping header into the net.

The three points took the Lions above St Mirren into eighth in the cinch Premiership, while Shaun Maloney’s side missed out on the chance to climb to fourth.
