  1. Post update

    St Mirren 0-1 Hibernian

    Ryan Stevenson is fortunate not to be shown a second yellow card as he trips Kyle Magennis.

    It was either a foul or a by-kick as it comes off the St Mirren last, but the officials go for a corner!

  2. Hibs shape shifters

    Quote Message: It looks like Hibs are going to a 4-2-3-1 formation. Daryl Horgan had a massive impact when he came on at the weekend. It will certainly help them stretch St Mirren

  3. Horgan for Newell

    St Mirren 0-1 Hibernian

    Another change for Hibs and this one might be tactical as another speed merchant, Daryl Horgan replaces Joe Newell in midfield.

  4. PENALTY APPEAL

    St Mirren 0-1 Hibernian

    The home fans rise in anger as their cries for a penalty are ignored after Ryan Flynn jinks into the box and Sam Foley is sent flying by a nudge in the back from Martin Boyle.

    They do win a corner and another shout for a spot kick follows as Gary MacKenzie is impeded.

  5. YELLOW CARD – Stevenson (Hibs)

    St Mirren 0-1 Hibernian

    Left-back Lewis Stevenson is the third Hibs player to be booked after tripping Ryan Flynn.

  6. Boyle replaces Kamberi

    St Mirren 0-1 Hibernian

    Hibs are forced into a change with striker Florian Kamberi walking gingerly from the field with what looks like a back injury.

    On comes Martin Boyle, the winger who is himself continuing his return from long-term injury but whose pace could provide an added problem for the St Mirren defence.

  7. ‘Yellow card right decision’

    Quote Message: The yellow card is the right decision because the ball was going out of play. It wasn’t a clear goalscoring opportunity and there were defenders getting back to cover

  8. YELLOW CARD – Maxwell (Hibs)

    St Mirren 0-1 Hibernian

    Hibs goalkeeper Chris Maxwell is fortunate to avoid a red card as he has a rush of blood to the head, comes charging out of his penalty box and takes down Kyle Magennis with a wild lunge.

    Referee Bobby Madden only produces a yellow, presumably because the St Mirren midfielder was heading away from goal.

  9. KICK-OFF

    St Mirren 0-1 Hibernian

    St Mirren get the second half under way. They have 45 minutes to avoid losing their game in hand over the three other sides on the same points at the foot of the table without picking up a point.

  10. McAllister needed by St Mirren?

    Quote Message: It’s been congested in the middle of the park. Scott Allan started well, but as the half wore on, even Allan struggled to make penetrating passes forward. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Kyle McAllister in the second half for St Mirren

  12. All square at Firhill

    HT: Partick Thistle 1-1 Alloa Athletic

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland at Firhill

    Really entertaining game of football so far here in Maryhill, where Partick Thistle applied serious pressure towards the end of the first-half to find a leveller after going behind to the plucky Wasps.

    Alan Trouten had put Alloa ahead by cleverly diverting Scott Taggart’s shot past stand-in Jags goalkeeper Jamie Sneddon.

    Kenny Miller had already hit the cross-bar before Darío Zanatta was in the right place to convert from Reece Cole’s corner as half-time approached.

    As it stands, McCall’s Thistle revival is stalling and, if it stays as it is, the Glasgow side will remain at the foot of the Championship behind tonight’s visitors.

  15. HALF-TIME St Mirren 0-1 Hibernian

    Christian Doidge has gone from dunce to dangerman by ending a nine-game barren spell with four goals in three games.

    The English striker’s deflected header is all that stands between the sides in a tight contest of few clear-cut chances.

    By the way, replays show that Hibs didn’t have a goal disallowed earlier. Ryan Porteous’ header landed on the back of the net after going over the crossbar.

    Even without that, Jack Ross’ side are 45 minutes away from a second win of his Hibs reign – and against his former club.

  16. Post update

    St Mirren 0-1 Hibernian

    Jonathan Obika tries a shot on the turn on the edge of the Hibs penalty box, but the big Englishman looks like Bambi on ice as he sends the ball weakly straight at goalkeeper Chris Maxwell.

  17. Buddies need ‘more quality’

  18. goal

    GOAL Partick Thistle 1-1 Alloa Athletic

    Dario Zanatta

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland at Firhill

    After lots of Jags pressure, Darío Zanatta finally nabs Thistle an equaliser!

    Reece Cole’s corner finds its way to the Canadian striker at the
    back post and the former Alloa man turns it into the top corner from six yards out.

    That’s only the former Hearts man’s third of the season.

  19. Post update

    St Mirren 0-1 Hibernian

    St Mirren are piling on the pressure, but Hibs successfully defend a couple of corners that had the ball bouncing dangerously around the away penalty box.

  20. Post update

    St Mirren 0-1 Hibernian

    Ryan Porteous misjudges a header, handing a sight at goal to Jonathan Obika.

    But the St Mirren striker hesitates and Paul Hanlon rescues his fellow centre-half with a fine tackle.
