Hibs missed out on the chance to top the SPL on Saturday after only drawing with Rangers 1-1 at Ibrox, not often we can say that.
I suppose it shows how far Yogi Hughes has taken Hibs since he took over in the summer. That and how far the rest of the teams have fallen after loosing out on TV money when Setanta went bust.
There is no doubting the exciting style of play Hibs are taking to the table and as each week goes by our expectations become more and more unrealistic, its great.
On Saturday Stokes had levelled for Hibs after 63 minutes, Rangers had taken an early lead through Chris Boyd. Rangers passed up a few good opportunities early in the second half but could also easily have lost the game when Colin Nish missed a great chance for Hibs with only a few minutes remaining.
Last week Hibs had defeated Kilmarnock at Easter Road by a goal to nil. After a tight first half Hibs came out fighting and totally dominated the game. Despite their dominance Hibs had to wait till the 83rd minute for their goal. A slightly dodgy penalty was awarded after Benji tumbled in the box. Benji picked himself up and scored to the keepers left.
I would not say Hibs are anywhere near a finished article but when they click they are producing nice football, If they continue to improve at this rate we Hibees are in for a good season.
