C'mon the Hibs

Something weird happened it reagrds to the blog yesterday which meant that this message from Hibbee Kanka Athole failed to show up. So I'm re-posting it.

Rangers 0 - 3 Hibernian

For the second time this season Hibs have travelled through to Ibrox Park and won 3-0. Three second half goals from O'Conner (50), Sproule (59) and Killen (78) sent the 5800 Hibs fans wild with delight not to mention those of us who watched the game on TV.

Rangers probably had the best of the first half and missed a couple of good chances before Simon Brown kept the Hibs goal in tact with a tremendous save. The game was played at a good pace and both midfields were putting in some heavy tackles but nothing too nasty. The most disapointing aspect of the first half for Hibs was Kevin Thomson being streatchered off after just five minutes. It looked a serious knee injury, hopefully not the same knee that had ligament surgery a couple of years ago.

The second half started much the same with both teams going for it but from the moment Hibs took the lead Rangers looked second best. Hibs moved the ball about well and as Rangers pushed forward Hibs picked them off and could on another day have scored four or five goals. One of the best performances of the day was from referee Stuart Dougal, it is easy for referees to be swayed by the crowds in Glasgow but he stood firm and called most of the decisions correctly. There was a hint of offside against O'Conner for the first goal but I think we can forgive Stuart Dougal for getting that one wrong.

  1. Greetings Kankas. Truly fantastic result yesterday. In all honesty I was looking for a draw and a return at Easter Road Fortress. Would be interested to know the last time the Mighty Hibees recorded 3 straight wins against the hated Huns ??

    Next up is an away quarter final against the winners of Falkirk and Ross County. Can't complain at that. At least we avoided the Mighty Clyde and the hated Jambos at this stage. Will be happy to see either in the final !!!

    All the best from a very very very happy Eski Kanka Jim

  2. Apparently it was in the 1960,s when John Martin? was our striker. This was before my time but Jim will probably remember.

  3. No........definitely Do NOT remember him either. Before my time too ........... honisssst !!
    I do however remember Neil Martin way back in the 70s !!!!
