Hibees back on track

Hibs beat Inverness on Saturday 2-0 to haul themselves back up the league. Goals from Steven Flether and a penalty from Chris Killen, both in the second half, saw Hibs finally beat Inverness for the first time in six matches. Hibs could easily have been behind in the first half but a tremendous double save from Zibi kept Hibs in the game. Hibs new manager John Collins had kept faith in his keeper after some costly errors and his faith was repaid in full.

Hibs never quite hit the level of performance they reached against Hearts last Wednesday but the important thing was that they managed to pick up the three points. The other SPL scores were as follows:
St Mirren 1-3 Celtic
Rangers 2-0 Dunfermline
Dundee Utd 1-0 Kilmarnock
Aberdeen 2-1 Motherwell
Falkirk v Hearts (Tonight)

Celtic might be 15 points clear of the pack but the fight for second place is making the league a bit more interesting than normal. Only three points seperate six teams. Second place will get a Champions League qualifier so there is plenty to play for.

  1. Yes, and a well done Hibs from me too.

    Inverness probably have one of the best AWAY records in the league since joining a few seasons ago, so to take 3 points off them is an achievement.

    Hibs have learned the hard way over the past 2 years that there are no easy games in the Premier League. The name of the game is grinding out points every week and staying in a challenging position in the top 5.

    Look forward to more upbeat reports from Hibbie Kanka !!
