Hibees Struggle

Hibs have only managed two points from their last two games and find themselves stuck in the middle of the table. When Rangers and Hearts have been dropping points Hibs could have been closing the gap but instead lost 2-1 away to Aberdeen and then drew 2-2 with Kilmarnock on Saturday. The draw with Kilmarnock was John Collins first game in charge and he will probably be looking back to Monaco for a goalkeeper as Hibs weakest position came back to haunt them.

The defeat up at Aberdeen was a sore one to take as the winning goal came in the dying seconds of the game, Hibs had been reduced to 10 men (again) and looked comfortable in holding on for a draw when Scott Severin hit a 25 yarder past Zibi. I believe the draw with Kilmarnock was a fair result, I am still not getting to the games due to other committments but after next Saturday will be able to give a better account of the game.

Hibs play Hearts on Wednesday in the League cup quarter final, hopefully we will see a win for a change.

  1. Perhaps it is not a bad thing for the new manager to start on a HIGH.

    Negative thinking .... yes... but at least he knows where the weaknesses are and he can repair them .... in time.

    No need to panic yet at this stage of the season. There is still a long way to go down the road !

    Looking to the League Cup now and a win would certainly be a boost for all concerned with the Hibees, especially after our disasterous Final against Livie a few years ago !!
