Hibs 3-2 Falkirk

Hibs picked up their first points of the season in an entertaining match against Falkirk.

Many Hibs fans were not looking forward to this game as the pre season had been poor and then an opening day defeat to Kilmarnock. Thankfully Hibs had other ideas and Colin Nish had Hibs one up within the first minute. Nish added another after twenty minutes and all seemed rosey in the Hibs camp. Unfortunately Hibs defensive frailties are still there and Falkirk took advantage to keep themselves in the game before half time.

Hibs started the second half in a similar way to the first by scoring a third within two minutes. This time it was the youngster Hanlon. Again Falkirk took advantage of slack Hibs defending by grabbing a second with 25 minutes still remaining.

To be fair to Falkirk they moved the ball well for their goals and could complain about poor defending themselves.

The remainder of the match got more and more nervy as the final whistle approached, Falkirk pushed men forward in a vain attempt to grab a draw but Hibs held out.

Inverness away next for Hibs, we have not won or scored a goal in Inverness since they arrived in the SPL three seasons ago. Time to change that.

    Well, if new boys Accies can beat Caley in Inverness then surely The Mighty Hibees can ? Or, is that too logical for footie ??!!
