Hibs 2-0 Saints

Five defeats from six games (or six in seven if you include the League Cup) makes it our worst start to a season since the war. Hibs have won twice at home all year and scored just once all season, yet they managed to ditch both those statistics this afternoon. We find ourselves here after every game - how long until the board act?

I am not stupid enough to expect us to go to any ground and produce a win, however the defeat just increases the horrendous run we are on. It seems it was a pretty poor performance and Hibs would have won far more comfortably if they had been a bit more clinical.

Christopher Dilo was handed his debut in goal, David Cornell dropping to the bench - possibly because of last week's error against Motherwell. It also looks as if the 3-5-2 was ditched despite Danny Lennon being relatively happy with it, David van Zanten and Kenny McLean coming in for Darren McGregor and Stephane Bahoken.

It took Hibs 10 minutes to go in front, Michael Nelson knocking on a free-kick and James Collins heading home. Paul Heffernan doubled the advantage after an hour before Danny Grainger was shown a second yellow card in the closing stages when he tried to take a quick free-kick.

All in all just not good enough.
