Hibs hit back at Motherwell on social media on Saturday night after the club's 3-1 victory in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

In the aftermath of the game - won thanks to goals from Christian Doidge, Florian Kamberi and Daryl Horgan after Liam Polworth had given the visitors the lead - Motherwell sent out their match report with a caption which suggested they felt hard done by.

It read: "A dominating Motherwell performance brings nothing as Hibernian win in the capital."

It read: "A dominant Hibernian performance brings three points as the Hibees win in the capital."

The tweet also contained the exact same photo as the Motherwell one - Martin Boyle battling away defender Jake Carroll for possession - while the bit.ly link to the match report had been altered to read 'bit.ly/DominantHibs'.
