Hibs fans give their views on their side’s victory over St Mirren

Joppa: “A very gutsy performance. We worked really, really hard with not a massive amount of football on show but Griffiths was outstanding with his movement off the ball which allowed O’Connor a wee bit more space to knit the game together. I thought Stack was also outstanding – an inability to clear cross balls in the air at times will catch us out though.”

George Czemartin, Leith: “This was the turning point for Hibernian. In the first half we played absolutely superb and actually committed ourselves to attack. Leigh Griffths was outstanding and he and O’Connor linked well and I think Calderwood got his tactics spot on. In the second half we managed to contain St Mirren and it was an excellent performance.”

Steven Bell, Armadale: “An average performance from Hibs. We gave away far too much possession and defensively we didn’t have enough cover from the left and right backs. There was a bit of fight at least and Agogo was good – indeed the best I’ve seen him play this season. Hopefully the only way is up now.”

Brian Stavert, Alexandria: “It was an alright performance. I thought Leigh Griffiths was man of the match – he scored two goals then Calderwood took him off for some reason. He should never have been substituted in the first place.”

Kieran Shanks, Tullibody: “Hibs were class. Leigh Griffiths had some great link up play with Garry O’Connor and Junior Agogo. I thought Osbourne was also outstanding. On this performance we’ll beat Celtic next week as well.”

Alan Connolly, Galashiels: “Desperate at times – the defending wasn’t great at times but we stuck at it and in the end it wasn’t too bad. It could have been made a lot easier if certain players had been working harder – O’Connor for definite. Agogo was my man of the match – his work rate was superb and he covered a lot of ground in a role you wouldn’t normally expect him to be doing.”

Ross Stewart, Swanston: “Our performance was dodgy in bits but I’ll take a win. Leigh Grifftiths was my man of the match – you can’t argue with two goals and he was our most creative player as well and quite dangerous. He was the best player on the pitch.”

Frazer Gunn, Bonnyrigg: “Defensively it wasn’t too great. Going forward I wasn’t sure why Calderwood took off Leigh Griffiths – he was having a cracking game and next thing he’s subbed. We got the result though and that’s all that matters.

John Smith, Leith: “It was a really good performance from Hibs. Everybody worked hard. When we went 2-1 for once the heads didn’t go down. The second half was quite average and pretty even. Why Calderwood (pictured right) took off Leigh Griffiths, I will never know.”

Paul Wilson, Leith: “I thought we dug in well and played really well. My man of the match would be Ian Murray. He was as solid as a rock at the back. I think we’re going to beat Celtic in the Cup on Wednesday on the back of this performance.”
