Inverness 1-1 Hibs

Another point for Hibs but more importantly another decent performance.

Mixu may have been coming under a bit of pressure from the media and sections of the support but he stuck to his guns with the style of football he wanted Hibs to play and now he is reaping the rewards.

In all three games Hibs have played this season they have created numerous chances, a bit disappointing that so few of them have been converted.

Against Inverness on Saturday Hibs were on the back foot for the first quarter and went behind on twenty minutes when a Cowie shot was deflected past the Hibs keeper. Considering Hibs had never scored a goal up in Inverness the heads could well have gone down but Hibs fought back and were on top for the rest of the match.

The equaliser came just after half time when Colin Nish found himself in the right place to notch his third of the season. Nish had another effort come back of the post but the winner was not to come.

Hibs play Morton on Tuesday night in the league cup, hopefully there will be another reason for Sir Eski kanka to visit Auld Reekie to follow the cup parade!

    as the only Morton fan reading this blog, I say, cmon the Ton!

  2. I cant believe that of all the people who read this blog, it is a Morton fan who comments.

    Not even my regular reader Sir Eski has raised a comment.

    For what it is worth I think Morton will give Hibs a good game tonight. Not quite been the force they were when Andy Richie used to score for fun!

    Good luck to the Ton, but not too much!

  3. Sir Eski was waiting to see actions and not words because you know how he hates to put the kiss of death on a team's performance with his asides !! (Oz Kanka for one hates my premonitions !!).

    So, what can I say about the result as I sit here by the Pool crying into my Efes ? I think the answer to that is ...... nothing !

    However, Hibbie Kanka, don't give up on seeing me at Easter Road Stadium this season. Once a Hibbie, always a Hibbie !!

    ahh Andy Ritchie - what a great guy, what a talent and what a waste. Still remember a hatrick against Dundee United that included a lob over Hamish McAlpine from the half way line.

  5. I'm intrigued as to why a Grinnokkkk Morton fan reads this blog !

    Reveal yourself Anonymous and tell me that you are also an Ankaragucu supporter so that we can at least have one thing in common !!!

    that sounded rather abrupt, sorry

  8. OK Steven. Thanks for revealing yourself !

    I notice you have a good Scottish name which all good Morton fans should have. The MacSeggie Clan is famous throughout Scotland !!

    I look forward to receiving your details from Oz Kanka in due course.

    In the meantime, please continue to comment on this blog. We love having commedians and YOU certainly fall into that category !
