  1. HIbs’ top peformer?

    Hearts 0-2 Hibernian

  2. Hearts 0-2 Hibernian

    Vykintas Slivka has space inside the box but sends his effort straight down the throat of Hearts keeper Joel Pereira.

    Hibs appear in the mood to add to their two-goal lead in what’s becoming one-way traffic in the Edinburgh derby.

  3. ‘More goals for Hibs here…’

    Quote Message: There could be more goals for Hibs here today. If they go into the second half with a clean sheet, they can do it. Hearts have had fighting spirit, but Hibs are the better team today.

    Quote Message: It’s a fantastic finish from Martin Boyle. I mean a really intelligent bit of play. Loic Damour’s reaction is as if he has the weight of he world on his shoulders. You have to stand up and be counted.

  5. GREAT SAVE!

    Hearts 0-2 Hibernian

    How will Hearts respond to that potential killer blow? Ryotaro Meshino engineers space for himself wide left before thundering forward and firing a rasping drive that seems destined for the top corner…

    But Ofir Marciano has other ideas, leaping brilliantly to tip away the goal-bound effort.

  6. GOAL! Hearts 0-2 Hibernian

    Martin Boyle

    Hibs double their lead through… who else?Martin Boyle.Scott Allan nicks the ball off Loic Damour’s toes and threads a great through ball for Boyle.

    The midfielder gathers possession, and his thoughts, before calmly firing home. The visitors are in dreamland; Hearts head coach Daniel Stendel takes a nervous gulp from his bottle of water.

  8. Can Hearts respond?

    Hearts 0-1 Hibernian

    Hearts force a couple of corners within a minute but they’re struggling to show a cutting edge in the final third. As we approach the half-hour mark, Hibs lead courtesy of Martin Boyle’s stunning strike.

  9. ‘Hibs are cruising’

    Quote Message: Hibs are the better team. Hearts are losing shape easily, they need to get on the ball and be brave. Up until now, Hibs are cruising.

  10. Winner winner turkey dinner…

    Hearts 0-1 Hibernian

  11. Things can only get Berra?

    Hearts 0-1 Hibernian

    Hibs’ movement in the final third is giving Hearts captain Christophe Berra a torrid time in the opening 25 minutes. The skipper must be feeling he’d prefer to be tucking into a turkey sandwich from the comfort of the couch and watching Only Fools & Horses than marshaling the shaky Hearts defence.

  12. ‘Stendel is going mental’

    Quote Message: Daniel Stendel is down there jumping around going mental. That was a really good corner and it looks like the whole Hearts team were static.

  13. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Hearts 0-1 Hibernian

    Scott Allan’s corner kisses the crossbar but then fails to find a Hibernian head with the Hearts defence looking far from convincing.

  14. CLOSE!

    Hearts 0-1 Hibernian

    Should Hibs be two goals to the good? Probably.

    Aaron Hickey has his pocket picked by an alert Jason Naismith after some calamitous defending. Naismith finds Vykintas Slivka but he blazes over.

  15. Hearts 0-1 Hibernian

    Hearts, aiming to restore parity, fire a corner kick into the box but the Hibs defence partially clear Meshino’s delivery before the towering Marciano trots off his line to gather.

  16. Hearts 0-1 Hibernian

    A momentarily lull in the frenetic pace and noise reverberating around Tynecastle as the hosts, bloodied by Hibs landing the first blow, look to respond.

    However, Daniel Stende’s side are struggling to get the ball into the feet of Uche Ikpeazu.

  17. Hibs bragging rights?

    Hearts 0-1 Hibernian

    The visitors have drawn first blood in the Edinburgh derby, courtesy of Martin Boyle’s stunning strike. The Hibs midfielder was cool as a cucumber, waiting for the ball to fall from the grey sky above before guiding his volley home…

  18. Pulsating Edinburgh derby

    Hearts 0-1 Hibernian

    It’s as though the players from both sides are keen to work off any excess turkey and festive over-indulgence.

    Tynecastle is ablaze with noise, colour and crunching tackles. Throw in a stunning volley and an unsuccessful penalty claim and we have a cracking opening 10 minutes in the Edinburgh derby…

  19. ‘A composed finish from Boyle’
