Little chance with either goal but saved a penalty and dealt with everything else well. 7
Was a constant threat driving down the right putting Aberdeen on the back foot and allowing Daryl Horgan to operate centrally. Will be annoyed he didnt stop the cross for Dons equaliser. 6

Had Aberdeens hulking centre forward Sam Cosgrove in his back pocket but will feel the goals were preventable. 7
A decent outing from the defender but the defence as a whole were ragged for the two goals. 6
A Lewis Stevenson performance. Unassuming and understated. 6
Neat and tidy. Gave Hibs a platform and produced a couple of key interventions. 7

Cant be faulted for effort but was unable to influence the game as he has previously. Couldnt quite get the space to take the game to Aberdeen. 6
Excellent on the ball. His reverse passes into the final third and to break the lines of the Aberdeen midfield were crucial in getting Hibs on top. Still a lot to learn in a defensive sense. 6
A constant threat drifting off the right flank, playing more like a No.10 than a winger. 8
Played on the fringes of the game but when he displayed his promise and talent. His ball to set up McNulty was exquisite. 6

Put in an excellent shift against the Aberdeen centre backs. Took his goal really well but could have had two or three with a little bit more luck. 7
Huge ovation and went into that protective role in midfield. 6
Hibs went two up front but looked less likely to score with Shaw barely getting a touch. 5
Little time to make an impact. N/A
