Match Report

Our stranglehold over Hibs continued with this narrow but deserved victory. The manager-less Easter Road side. as expected, proved a tough nut to crack and only a goal just before half time gave us the points. We started well but Irishman Mark Caughey should have put Hibs ahead in the 18th minute when he met a cross at the near post and somehow managed to shoot past the far post. From then until the interval we were on top and finally got our reward when Paul Sturrock's corner from the left was headed strongly downwards past Alan Rough by Eamonn Bannon.

Fewer chances came our way in the second half in which debutant Billy McKinlav was unfortunate to see Alan Rough brilliantly tip his volley over the bar and Iain Ferguson also saw the Hibs 'keeper save his effort after it had taken a deflection. The closest Hibs came to taking a point was right at the beginning of the half when Maurice Malpas cleared a Caughey shot off the line.
