After the euphoria of clinching their first piece of silverware for 16 years, the Hibees have struggled to transform their cup form into the league games.
In what is turning out to be a disappointing league campaign, the cups are a welcome distraction. lets hope more sucess in teh Scottish cup is to follow.
Last weekends game against Hearts loked to be going our way until Hearts sneaked a late winner against the run of play. Derby games over the last few years have been eagerly awaited as they have tended to be full of action and goals. Unfortunately Hearts tactics for this game were to waste time and stifle any open football from the first minute.
I can understand Hearts thinking as a very uncertain future lies infront of them with their Lithuanian owner making strange decisions every week. Personally I hope Hearts come out the okay as Derby games are the best, in saying that they are also the worst if you loose.
Hibs played again on Wednesday against St Mirren, a game we hoped to win to keep any faint hopes of finishing fourth. Hibs took the lead in the first half through Rob Jones but that just inspired St Mirren to raise their game in order help them stay in the SPL. A deserved equalsier came in the last minute, unlucky for Hibs or justice for St Mirren!
Hibs play Dunfermline tomorrow, surley they can beat the leagues bottom team? One thing you must know by now is that by following Hibs nothing is certain.
I think Hibs main aim for the remainder of the season will be to secure firth place and get to the Scottish cup final. We play Dunfermline again next week in the semi final at Hampden, hopefully another cup final is on the cards. Can Oz Kanka take more Hibs stories???
