Hibs recorded their biggest league win in over two years this afternoon by comprehensively beating Livingston 4-0 at the Energy Assets Arena.

Goals from Dominique Malonga, Danny Handling , Dylan McGeough and Paul Heffernan ensured the three points headed to Easter Road and as an added bonus, Alan Stubbs’ men are now in the play off position.

Stubbs was forced to play Callum Booth in the centre of the defence alongside Paul Hanlon after normal first choice Jordon Forster called off due to an injury. 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

Maybury_warmup

Hibs dismal run of form continued today with a 2-0 defeat to Hearts at Tynecastle and whilst yet another disgraceful blunder by a linesman prevented a late equaliser for the Easter Road side, in truth Hearts deserved the victory to stave off relegation for at least another three days.

The Hearts’ fans have already accepted their fate, but were determined to drag their rivals into a relegation play off and the players were greeted with chants of ‘You’re going down with the Jambos.’ Continue reading

A brave performance by Hibs was not enough to secure a share of the points against champions Celtic at Parkhead today.
