St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright has admitted that both managers will be looking to tighten things up at Easter Road on Saturday.
Hibs have conceded nine goals in their last two games, as have Saints.
Wright, who watched Paul Heckingbottom’s men win 5-3 against Morton in the Betfred Cup last weekend, said: “I thought it was a fantastic match.
“Hibs were in total control but Morton got their tails up when they scored.
“Hibs have a lot of quality. Paul has made some very good signings and they have a really strong squad.
“They have a lot of threats going forward.
“I would imagine Paul is a bit like myself in that he’s frustrated at the amount of goals they have lost recently.
“But there is no doubt they have built a good squad, which is what you would expect for a club of Hibs’ size.”
