Hibs 4 - 2 Gretna

Hibs continued their winning start to the new SPL season with a 4-2 win over last years first division champions.

Despite going two goals down early in the second half, Hibs could afford the luxuary of a missed penalty before scoring four goals to grab the three points.

From a Hibs perspective the two goals Gretna scored were down to slack defensive play, especially the second goal that was just a long ball over the top.

On a more positive note, once Fletcher and Zemama were introduced to the game Hibs began to spead the ball about the park. To be fair to Hibs they should have been infront before Gretna scored but poor finishing from Benji and Obrian kept the scoresheet blank.

In the end Hibs could have scored more than four but until the forth was scored there was always the worry that Gretna would get back in the game. Gretna were very keen to attack throughout the game and looked a tidy outfit but I think their defence will be their downfall.

It was not quite the performance we were hoping for from Hibs but four goals and three points cant be bad.

Next up Dundee Utd away

Hibbee Kanka


  1. There are times when things are going well and there is `silverware` in the cabinet when expectations become unrealistic.

    We should try to keep our feet firmly `on the ground` and remember that the Hibs team is still `bedding in` after the influx of the new boys.

    The acid test is coming up in the next 2 weeks with matches against Dundee Utd and Aberdeen. If Hibs are still undefeated after those 2 then it will possibly be time for Eski Kanka to visit his travel agent and book his flight for this season's League Cup Final !!!
