A last-minute goal from midfielder Scott Martin saw Hibs extend their lead at the top of the SPFL Development League to five points.
But the Easter Road youngsters passed up the chance to put pressure on Celtic – five points adrift but with three games in hand – as they had to come from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Inverness Caley.
Hearts had done them a favour by beating Celtic 24 hours earlier, but they found themselves trailing to goals from Dean Ebbe and Scott Boden before Adam Watson pulled one back, leaving Martin to snatch the equaliser.
Hibs: Gallacher, Donaldson, Mackie, Crane, Waugh, S Martin, Trialist (Gullan), I Murray (Smith), Watson (Breen), Handling, F Murray. Subs not used: P Martin, O’Connor.
