No Goals at Easter Road Despite Hibs’ Domination

Hibs-Bottle-Green-Strip-2012-13 Two superb saves from Aberdeen keeper Jamie Langfield denied Hibs a winning start to the post-split fixtures in a hard fought encounter at Easter Road last night.

Pat Fenlon made four changes to the team who started at Hampden last weekend, with Lewis Stevenson, Danny Handling, Eoin Doyle and Tom Taiwo replacing Ryan McGivern, Scott Robertson, Paul Cairney and Jorge Claros.

The game kicked off in front of a poor crowd, considering that the club had reached their second successive cup finals and that an incentive of being allowed to buy two tickets was on offer for supports who paid at the gate Continue reading

Hibs Top Six Hopes Hang By A Thread

Pat Fenlon’s hopes of a top six finish hang by a thread tonight after Hibs’ 2-1 home defeat to Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

There would be no happy birthday for Pat Fenlon as Hibs hopes of a top six finish took a major setback at Fir Park tonight when Motherwell fought back from a goal down to win 4-1.

Fenlon kept faith with the starting eleven who were unlucky not to win the Edinburgh derby on Sunday, meaning still no place for Tim Clancy who is recovering from injury while new signing Kevin Thomson had to settle for a place on the bench. Continue reading

Referee’s Blunder Costs Hibs Derby Win

Once again, refereeing incompetence has cost Hibs vital points in the fight for a top six place.

Two weeks ago, a poor decision gave Dundee United an undeserved share of the points when Ryan McGivern was wrongly adjudged to have brought down Gary McKay Steven’s inside the penalty box, when it was clear that the infringement took place well outside. Last week, Kilmarnock were awarded a penalty when Lewis Stevenson was penalised for bringing down Paul Heffernan although TV replays showed no contact, but both decisions paled into insignificance compared to today’s howler.
