Hibs 2-0 Falkirk

After two draws against Hearts and St Mirren Hibs got back on winning ways against Falkirk with a goal in each half.

This victory brings Hibs unbeaten run to nine games.

The second goal came with only a few minutes left after a rather nervy second half which Falkirk had made a spirited fight.

Hibs did not really get going in this match and can thank Derek Riordan for being the main difference between the teams. He scored his first with the help of a deflection off the defenders shin but his second gave the goalkeeper no chace after Wotherspoon had delivered a tremendous cross which left the keeper stranded.

This win puts Hibs level on points with Rangers in second place two points behind Celtic. Us Hibs fans are in danger of getting vertigo being this high up the league, hopefully it will continue for a while yet.

    Well neither Celtic nor Rangers are firing on all cylinders lately so I think Hibs need to take advantage of this.Crucial time of the season,really cant remember the Old Firm being in such disaray and dropping so many points.Important factor will be Rangers and Celtic's imminent end of participation in Europe.They'll then be able to concentrate fully on the league.The big question then is..........can Hibs keep on their coat tails in the new year???!!!!

  2. To answer Dublin Neil's question .....YES !!!

    John Hughes was naturally full of praise for Riordan, but he also had a few words of praise for Nishy who had a few close calls thanks mainly to the excellence of the Falkirk goalkeeper.

    Mr Hughes has lots of options in his squad and I'm really confident that Hibs can keep the momentum going and, together with Dundee Utd, make a serious challenge to The Auld Firm this season.
