Hibs came out on top today after a nine goal thriller which included a hat trick from striker Dominique Malonga against Ian Murray’s Dumbarton at the Bet Butler Stadium.

Head Coach Alan Stubbs was able to select an experienced side compare to last week thanks to the return of injured duo Mark Oxley and Scott Robertson as well as the new Conga internationalist Malonga.

There was little indication of the goal fest to come in the first quarter which, although Hibs dominated, they were unable to pierce the ‘Sons defence.

The breakthrough eventually arrived in the 22nd minute after some great interplay which ended with Scott Allan firing home from just inside the box. Continue reading

A combination of fine goalkeeping from Republic of Ireland youngster Danny Rogers and some atrocious refereeing prevented Hibs taking all three points this afternoon against Dumbarton at Easter Road.

Jason Cummings, Liam Craig and David Gray all went close in the early stages before Mark Oxley was called into action to save a fine strike from Jordan Kirkpatrick. Continue reading

On form Hibs had to settle for one point against Raith Rovers at Easter Road this afternoon after a goal from former Hearts’ striker Christian Nade cancelled out Scott Robertson’s first half effort.

Alan Stubbs’ men dominated the first half and created numerous chances but had to be content with a one goal lead, but Rovers responded well and were well worth a share of the points.

Stubbs made one change to the starting XI who performed so well at Ibrox in midweek with Callum Booth replacing the injured David Gray resulting in the versatile Lewis Stevenson moving to right wing back. Continue reading

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
