Hibs will get better warns John McGinn after defeat of Queens

The rest of the Championship will not be heartened to hear it but John McGinn believes Hibernian have more to give. With a new manager at the start of the season, he says they took some time getting used to what was expected of them.

Queen of the South 0 - 1 Hibernian: Hibees go eight points clear in title race

Hibernian will not be heeding chatter that this league is all but won. Their fifth win in a row saw them move eight points clear of second-placed Dundee United, who had been breathing down their neck only a matter of weeks ago, but while they appear to have shifted through the gears, Hibs say they are still keeping an eye on the rearview mirror.

Hearts v Hibs Scottish Cup clash sates Andrew Shinnie’s envy

Andrew Shinnie has heard all the stories, seen countless videos and, every time he is regaled by tales of Hibernian’s Scottish Cup triumph, he feels a stab of envy. But now he has the chance to sample those highs for himself and he wants to capitalise.

Dundee United 3 - 3 Queen of the South: Tangerine dream hit

Coming back from two goals down with less than 15 minutes to go is not to be scoffed at but when the dust settled on this one there was no escaping that Dundee United’s pursuit of the Championship automatic promotion spot suffered another serious dent in this thoroughly unpredictable 90 minutes. Yes, it could have been worse, and yes they showed real guts for not giving up with defeat staring them in the face, but the fact is they now trail Hibs by six points. Mind the gap, as the saying goes.

Future looks bleak for John Sutton and St Mirren

It would not have seemed 
possible four years ago, when Danny Lennon’s St Mirren side beat Celtic in the semi-finals of the League Cup and then went on to prevail against Hearts in the final, but the Buddies are staring down the barrel of 
relegation to Scottish football’s third tier.

Queen of the South recorded their first league win since 17 September to keep alive their faint hopes of qualifying for the play-offs. St Mirren, by contrast, are surely doomed for the drop.

Queen of the South 0 - 0 Ayr United: Two sides draw ugly

It was a clash between the two most out-of-form sides in the Championship, Queens having gone 12 games without a win since they were top of the table back in mid-September, and United not having tasted victory in their last eight. Indeed, United’s last success was against their Dumfries hosts the last time they met in October.

Falkirk 2 - 2 Queen of the South: Derek Lyle rescues a point

Falkirk and Queen of the South may have shared the spoils yesterday, but there was no doubt who was the more content manager following a pulsating contest.
