Another bad result for Hibs going down to a hard working St Mirren side. Scant consolation that the winning goal was a wonder strike from the St Mirren full back followed by a wonder save by the St Mirren goalkeeper in the second half.
By all accounts Hibs were far from their best, at least this week we have only ourselves to blame and not one of the refereeing fraternity. Hibs did have a few players out through injury and suspension but the players who came in should have been strong enough to collect at least a point. Congratulations to St Mirren though on collecting another three points and staying up at the top end of the table, so much for being favourites for relegation. During the past couple of weeks as Hibs were dropping points so were the other teams round about them so if we can pick up a couple of victorys in October we will still be in the hunt for the UEFA cup places.
The other SPL scores were as follows:
Hearts 4-0 Dundee Utd
Falkirk 0-1 Celtic
Motherwell 5-0 Kilmarnock
Inverness 1-0 Dunfermline
Rangers 1-0 Aberdeen
At the risk of offending Eski Kanka Jim, the referee from the Hibs Falkirk game was at it again this weekend. A red card brandished after 8 minutes saw Dundee down to ten men. I do not know any more details as I was on a course this weekend that stopped me collecting a lot of the football news. Another referee for the chop must be the one who tried to send off Mini Hibbee Kanka after a five goal show for his school. Sad day when scoring to many goals gets you in trouble, maybe I can get a completely unbiased view from Mini Hibbe Kanka on that one.
