At least one Edinburgh football team has been competing for silverware – Angus Robertson
Hibs’ form is looking up, but Hearts are under even greater pressure, while Hibs’ women’s team deserve plaudits for their part in a thrilling Scottish cup final, writes Angus Robertson.
There was a warm welcome to Edinburgh for Jack Ross as Hibs fans celebrated his arrival as new head coach and a 3-1 victory over Motherwell at the weekend.
It was the first consecutive league win for the Hibees since March. Unbeaten in seven league games, the Easter Road side are now up to the top half of the table in sixth spot. What a great place to be after a shocking start to the season.
No such luck for Hearts so far, who still languish at the wrong end of the table. The waiting game continues for a new manager at Tynecastle after the departure of Craig Levein and owner Ann Budge has come under fire for not yet selecting a replacement.
The 3-0 weekend thrashing by Kilmarnock only increases the pressure. Fingers crossed we will hear an announcement soon.
Meanwhile, Tynecastle was the host of the thrilling Scottish Women’s Cup Final.
Commiserations to Hibs who lost 4-3 to Glasgow City in a match where the lead changed three times. Despite not winning this time after a three-year hold of the cup, at least one Edinburgh footballing side has been competing for silverware.
