Hearts prepare to entertain Livingston at Tynecastle Stadium on Saturday evening, determined to stop the rot against their opponents, having lost out to their rivals on 2 of the previous 3 occassions.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Tynecastle Stadium was less than a year ago, in December 2002, the Jambo's carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Scottish Premier match.
