Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Last night my buddy Tom and I drove through to Glasgow to see if Hibs could repeat last Saturday's form against Celtic. Thanks to Gareth Evans, Hibs Assistant Manager and a friend of ours, for providing the tickets !

Celtic 1 HIBS 2

Well Hibs didn't exactly play against Celtic like they did against Hamilton, but it was a great performance nevertheless to take all 3 points in Glasgow. The result moves Hibs to within 2 points of 2nd top Celtic and looking good to challenge them all the way to the end of the season.

There was about 40,000 supporters there last night and a terrific atmosphere inside the impressive Celtic Stadium.

Celtic opened the scoring after 5 minutes and Eski had his head in his hands expecting a goal rush. However, Hibs weathered the storm and settled into their normal passing game and after half an hour Stokes made the breakthrough with a headed equaliser to silence the large Celtic support.

Hibs soaked up more pressure in the 2nd half and just on time scored the winner when Stokes and Hanlon gave substitute Galbraith the opportunity of scoring his 1st goal for Hibs. What a place to do it too !

There is a spring in Eski's step today and I can't wait for Saturday and another possible goal rush !

All the best from an euphoric Eski Kanka Jim


  1. When you get back here, hopefully you'll bring some of that euphoria with you. We are in desperate need.
