Hibs v Celtic, Sun 21 April, KO 12.30pm
Well the Hoops and Lenny come to town possibly looking to win the Premiership title for the 8th consecutive time but Hibs are in fine form and still unbeaten in the league since PH's arrival at ER. This should be quite an intriguing match with Hibs reasonably well organised defensively and Rocky looking very assured indeed. Celtic will be stronger with various players gradually returning to full match fitness.

I don't want them celebrating a title win at Easter road, but likely another gutless performance from leveins league winners in October side will take care of that.

Fancy us to get at least a draw.

A 0-0 result ensures Paul Heckingbottom's unbeaten league record remains intact in a game on a hot, sunny afternoon that I thought resembled a testimonial match during long periods. The MOTM was most definitely Rocky with some stunning saves but Hibs had their moments too and sadly Oli Shaw "not up to the mark" in striking terms as he could've "sneaked" a win for Hibs if he'd been a wee bit more aware and sharp with the great scoring opps that he scorned!! Still, a good result and Hibs played well in spells and, more importantly, "kept their shape" again.

A good performance from our boys getting close to the level we had earlier in the season. Unfortunately the striking gods were against Oli Shaw yesterday or he might have sneaked it for us late on. We have a chance of overtaking Killie and going 4th which would be a remarkable performance considering we had a spell where we only took 5 points out of a possible 21. Paul Heckingbottom seems to have us moving in the right direction, a lot to look forward to in season 19/20.
Good open game, a draw was probably fair on the end with Marciano making some inspired saves.....PH was tactically impressive, pressing high, closing ajer down when he stepped out of defence..

Really hope we can keep as many of this squad together as possible..
