Hibernian 1-2 Hearts: Gorgie win derby

HEARTS’ improvement in may have come too late to their place in the top flight, but it to augur extremely well for in the Championship next season.

Hearts — Paterson 37, 41; — Forster 69

Yesterday’s their fourth of the season in the derby, took their of points to 13 from the last games, and was further proof of the character they now have manager Gary Locke.

But for 15-point penalty for going administration, the Tynecastle team now be level on points with for whom this was a tenth game without a win. Butcher’s team remain but only on goal difference Partick Thistle and Ross and are now just a point clear of the place.

This was Hibs’ performance for some time, at when it came to showing a to compete in the middle of the park. But the they had in that department again undone by the two principal that have dogged all season: insecurity at the back and a of a real goal threat up

True, lone striker Cummings ran intelligently to link up his midfield, and discounting his team’s was the biggest danger to Hearts. But Collins, a second-half substitute for the wasted one priceless chance in the game, appearing to miss the and connect with Hearts Jamie MacDonald instead an attempted clearance had ricocheted his path.

Collins did have one effort on goal right at the end of the six of stoppage time, but MacDonald got a to his powerful shot to keep it And, to add insult to injury, the flag was up in any case.

At the other end, Hearts Callum Paterson seized on the two opportunities that came his Hibs needed to show fortitude after going in at the two goals down, and when Forster got a goal back played with a conviction has been sorely absent for the two months or more.

The key question now for team is whether they can with the same desire in three remaining games, on Saturday at home to Partick Those matches – Ross away then Kilmarnock at are the others – will be less than the derby, but at the same even more high-pressure

The Hibs support must shredded nerves by this and they can only hope the players remain as self-possessed and as they did at their best in game. Having said it was only once they two goals down – for the fifth in succession – that Hibs did to string some decent of play together. And even some of their more moves were brought to an end by passes.

Hearts, by contrast, looked the composed team from the The first attempt on goal from Kevin Thomson, but in Hibs got off to a hesitant start and second to most balls in the quarter of an hour.

Back injury, Scott Robertson some positive stuff in alongside Thomson and Liam but it was his near-namesake, Hearts’ Scott who was the most impressive performer in the room. Cummings had a couple of efforts midway through the as Hibs came more the game – one was an off-target header, the a long-range shot saved by – but then in the last ten minutes of the Hearts struck twice.

First, every outfield stood and watched as Paterson’s header from a King bounced out of Ben Williams’ reach and the corner of the net, then the player met a Kevin McHattie kick from the right to nod in at the The Hearts player timed his run on both occasions, but a more defence would at least made it more difficult to

Forster, one of the most culpable players at those goals, had a cleared off the line early in the half by Robinson. Hearts unable to keep out the centre-half’s from a Ryan McGivern around quarter of an hour and that goal – Hibs’ since a 3-1 defeat at Firhill in – prompted a sustained late by the home team.

But Collins’s miss some six minutes the end of normal time was as close as came to getting an equaliser. Stevenson could have Hearts of a more comfortable to the game, but he chipped wide of the far when through on Williams.

In stoppage time, Hibs had one real chance – if something can be a chance when the flag is up. They are still not creating clear-cut scoring opportunities, and not turning a sufficient number of into goals.

Butcher was to say they played better than they had done for time, but they will to carry on getting better if are to dig themselves out of their increasingly position…even then there is a risk that, like they may find that improvement has come too late to them.
