Hibs Drop To Tenth As Kilmarnock Game Abandoned

Hibs dropped to tenth place in the SPL after their fixture at Rugby Park against Kilmarnock was abandoned when a supporter required medical treatment for a suspected heart attack.

The man, believed to be in his 50s was given medical treatment at the side of the pitch in front of Rugby Park’s East Stand shortly after the start of the second half. He later died in hospital.

The match was stopped by referee Kevin Clancy and the players left the pitch as the seriousness of the incident became apparent.

Medical staff from both clubs helped paramedics before an ambulance arrived to transfer the supporter to hospital.
After the delay the home side confirmed the game had been abandoned with the scoreline 1-1.

In a hard fought first half, Hibs teenage winger Alex Harris gave Pat Fenlon’s side the lead on the 20th minute after a superb through ball from Ryan McGivern, but Kilmarnock equalised when Kris Boyd latched onto a Winchester flick on, to volley the ball past Ben Williams.

The result sees Hearts leapfrog Hibs ahead of next week’s derby. The Gorgie outfit, who beat St Mirren 3-0 at Tynecastle yesterday, have 43 points, one more than Hibs who have played one game less.

Ryan McGivern went off injured in the first half with a knee injury which required an ice pack.
