Hibs Secure Famous Victory AAt Ibrox

hibs badge

Two goals from Jason Cummings and a header from David Gray secured a memorable win over Championship favourites Rangers at Ibrox this evening and moved Hibs from second bottom of the table to within touching distance of a play off spot.

Head Coach Alan Stubbs made one change from the team that beat Ross County with Scott Allan replacing the suspended Dylan McGeough.

Around 800 Hibs fans made the journey to Ibrox and after a steady opening twenty five minutes when neither side created any clear chances, they were rewarded when their favourites took the lead. A long clearance from Mark Oxley was controlled by Cummings and the youngster calmly slotted the ball past the Rangers keeper into the net. Continue reading

Despite a vastly improved performance in comparison to last week’s dismal derby display, Hibs once again came away with no points in an entertaining game against Falkirk at Easter Road this afternoon.

Head coach Alan Stubbs made four changes to the team that lost at Tynecastle. Two were enforced with suspended pair Lewis Stevenson and Scott Robertson being replaced by Callum Booth and Scott Allan, whilst on-loan Matthew Kennedy took Sam Stanton’s place and Paul Heffernan took over from Danny Handling.

Hibs started brightly particularly down the left side with Booth and Kennedy forming a dangerous partnership and were unlucky not to score. Continue reading

Business as usual as Hibs lose yet another Edinburgh derby

HibsBadge.

Despite the positive statements coming from Easter Road about changing the style of play, increasing the confidence of the players and bringing in quality rather than quantity, it was business as usual at Tynecastle this afternoon with Hibs’ players resorting to the aimless long ball tactics of last season and Hearts emerging as comfortable winners.

Head coach Alan Stubbs made two changes to the starting line-up that beat Livingston last Saturday. Danny Handling returned from suspension replacing Paul Heffernan and Michael Nelson taking over from the injured Paul Hanlon.

With Hearts’ two first choice goalkeepers injured, youngster Jack Hamilton took his place in goal.

After thirty minutes of neither team creating a chance, Hibs were given a great chance to take the lead when Hamilton collided with Handling inside the box and referee Collum pointed to the spot.

Skipper Liam Craig took the resultant penalty but missed the target with a poorly struck effort.

Mark Oxley then made a superb stop to deny Sam Nicholson before Jordon McGhee’s volley flew inches past the post just before the break. Continue reading

Head Coach Alan Stubbs made eight changes with only Mark Oxley, Jordon Forster and Farid El Alagui retaining their place in the starting XI following Sunday’s match with Dundee United.

Former Newcastle United midfielder Michael Richardson started as a trialist whilst Paul Heffernan recovered from injury to take a place on the bench. Continue reading

Hibs’ Fans Appreciate Stubbs’ Playing Style Despite Friendly Defeat

2013_09-HIBS-101

A late Chris Erskine goal secured victory for Dundee United in today’s friendly at Easter Road, but the Hibs’ fans left the stadium satisfied with their side’s passing game which was in stark contrast to the long ball style favoured by Terry Butcher last season.

Another pleasing aspect was the return to form of teenage winger Alex Harris whose confidence appeared to have deserted him in the latter stage of the campaign.

Head Coach Alan Stubbs handed home debuts to new signings David Gray and Farid el Alagui, with Hull City goalkeeper Mark Oxley starting as a trialist. Continue reading
