NOt a classic, not even a very good game of football but a good three points for Hibs.
After being well beaten by Hibs twice already this season, Motherwell came to Easter Road determined not to lose goals. A packed defence and midfield certainly stopped any flowing football and along with a heavy pitch that cut up early it was an uphill battle for Hibs.
There was not much to report about the first half but Hibs changed their shape at half time and pushed a second striker up front. This helped Hibs hold the ball up and the chances soon started to come. Once the first goal was scored by Scott Brown it seemed as if more would follow but som poor finishing meant we had to wait till injury time for the clincher.
Hibs did deserve the three points but will have to play better to win the two cup games coming up on Wednesday and Saturday even if they are aginst lower league teams.
The bad news for Hibs is that Rangers look like they have signed Kevin Thomson. The news said £2M but I would be surprised if that was all Hibs would get.
