Like our last away game at Dens it was the home 'keeper who won the Man of the Match. At Dens it was Tom Carson who put up the shutter, at Easter Road, Andy Goram proved to be our stumbling block. The Scottish international 'keeper first saved a header from Jim McInally and was tested even further when Paddy Connolly split the Easter Road defence. The youngster flicked the ball through to Kevin Gallacher, but Goram managed to block Kevin's effort. Our finishing let us down on the half hour mark. Neither Paddy Connolly nor Mixu Paatelainen could scramble the ball home after a good cross from Kevin Gallacher.
Paddy Connolly and Darren Jackson both shot wide of the target after escaping the shackles of the Hibs defence. Andy Goram then came to Hibs rescue on two occasions. Firstly he tipped over a Darren Jackson header from Mixu Paatelainen's cross from the left, but it took a combined effort of the Hibs 'keeper and the woodwork to prevent us taking a deserved lead. In the 79th minute Jim McInally's shot hit Goram's legs and then the post. The danger was eventually cleared when Goram saved from Paddy Connolly. If Goram was Hibs top per-former, Paddy Connolly was the pick of the men in tangerine in what was a good performance with the obvious exception of finishing!
