Back to loosing ways for Hibs after being edged out by the odd goal in five to Hearts. The first half was a pretty dull affair with only a goal for Hearts and a bad miss for Hibs to give the fans talking points. The second half was a totally different affair as Hibs started brightly only to fall two goals behind thanks to a bad blunder by the Hibs goal keeper. A tame free kick was dropped at the feet of the Hearts striker who tapped the ball home. Hibs looked down and out before a Killen header and a Dean Sheils penalty brought Hibs level. I thought at this point that we would go on and win the game but Sheils clashed with the Hearts goalkeeper while trying to get the ball out of the back of the net and was promptly sent off. Within ten minutes Hearts had gone 3-2 up and although Hibs had a shot that hit both posts before coming back out they could not find the equaliser.
It was an entertaining game but again Hibs fail to find a run of winning games that stops them climbing the table. We have a couple of home games coming up and six points would help start the new year in a positive fashion.
