Player ratings scale - 10: One of best performances you've seen. 9: Outstanding. 8: Very good. 7: Good. 6: Average. 5: Poor, 4: Very poor. 3: Terrible day at office. 2: Abysmal. 1: One of worst performances you've seen.

Given a surprise start in place of Ofir Marciano. Made no saves of note but generally dealt well with crosses into his box.
The right-back, in both his derby debut and his Easter Road debut, generally kept Jake Mulraney quiet. Went close with a couple of headers late on.
A typically committed display from the derby veteran, who defended steadily. Little influence in an attacking sense.

The centre-back was typically robust in the challenged. Defended well and helped restrict Hearts to few chances until the closing stages.
Was fairly comfortable until the closing 20 minutes, when Hearts started to cause the hosts problems.
Drove first-half shot wide then spurned a great chance to make it 2-0 in second half. The Swede, in his derby debut, competed well and could be satisfied with his contribution. Subbed at 1-1.
Deployed wide on the right and started well. Early shot deflected behind by Whelan and lovely pass into the box set up Hallberg. Scored sensational goal from 25 yards out.
Couple of half-chances in first half. Competed but unable to influence game in Hibs favour. Hickeys winner deflected off him.
Stuck to his task, but got no change out of the solid Hearts trio of Berra, Halkett and Smith. Looks in need of a strike partner.
Made three quality passes inside the Hearts full-backs in the first half. Likeliest Hibs player to make something happen but faded as game wore on.
Lively on the left in the first half and caused Hickey problems. Booked for a bad challenge on the full-back. Less effective after the break and subbed after Hearts second goal.
Had a couple of lively moments after replacing Hallberg for last 13 minutes. Denied an equaliser by Pereira.
On after Hearts second goal. Late header held by Pereira and goal ruled out for handball.
