Hibs are now clear in third place in the SPL after beating Aberdeen 2-0 on Saturday. Two goals from Anthony Stokes was the difference as Aberdeen failed to convert their greater percentage of possession.
This was an important three points as last weeks draw away to Kilmarnock allowed both halves of the old firm to streatch their advantage over Hibs.
Hibs host Rangers next Saturday at Easter Road, it is a huge match for both teams and a full attendance is certain. Rangers have hit a bit of form since loosing to Aberdeen so Hibs will have to be at their best.
Celtic allowed Rangers to open a gap of four points at the top when they lost to Hearts at Tyncastle this afternoon. Celtic were one up and cruising when Gary Caldwell gave a penalty away and collected a red card to allow Hearts an equaliser. Hearts then rode their luck in the second half before snatching all the points late on.
Hibs are now only one point behind Celtic and all us Hibees are wondering how long we can keep this going for. That is now 12 games undefeated.
Hopefully I can provide another victory post next weekend.
