Ofir Marciano 6

Wasn’t called into action all that often but did everything that was asked of him. Could do nothing for the goal.

Josh Doig 6

Lost a couple of individual battles with Wighton but the 18-year-old can be fairly pleased with his overall performance.

Paul Hanlon 7

Assured at the back from the club stalwart. Composed on the ball and a real defensive presence.

Ryan Porteous 5

Largely solid outing from the centre-half, but lost Wighton at the back post for Hearts’ goal.

Paul McGinn 5

Decent performance from the full-back. Linked up well with Boyle and kept Hearts quiet down their left. Gave away a soft penalty.

Alex Gogic 6

Sat at the base of midfield and was industrious as ever. Protected the defence and distributed the ball well.

Joe Newell 6

Was a real threat from set-pieces and covered plenty of ground in midfield.

Kyle Magennis 5

Should really have opened the scoring in the first half but was denied by a well-timed block from Smith.

Martin Boyle 7

Strong performance down the right. Was a regular menace with his crosses in towards the back post.

Christian Doidge 6

The big Welshman spurned a glorious chance in the first half but made up for it in the second to pull Hibs level.

Kevin Nisbet 4

Only denied a first-half goal by a stunning save from Gordon and faded as the game went on. Missed a penalty at 1-1.


Jamie Murphy (for Magennis, 61’) 4

Used his pace well and was at his best when driving forward on the counter.

Sean Mackie (for Doig, 87’) 3

Quiet performance.

Stevie Mallan (for Gogic, 115’) N/A

Not enough time to make impact.


Craig Gordon 8

Incredible stop to deny Nisbet in the first half. Impressed throughout and could do little to stop Doidge’s goal.

Stephen Kingsley 6

Had the unenviable task of marking Boyle but did so well enough.

Mihail Popescu 6

A solid but unspectacular display from the former St Mirren defender. The penalty he gave away looked extremely harsh.

Craig Halkett 6

Generally fared well but will be disappointed to have been beaten to the ball for Doidge’s goal.

Michael Smith 6

Comfortable with the ball at his feet and gave little away at the back.

Andy Halliday 5

Showed a sign of things to come with a heavy challenge early on and ended up in the book for a silly tackle in the second half.

Olly Lee 7

Superb assist to break the deadlock and covered a lot of ground in midfield.

Jamie Walker 6

Was fairly lively in the final third but could have offered more. Took a couple of knocks and had to come off.

Jordan Roberts 5

Quiet afternoon from the winger. Tested Marciano with a pot shot early on but didn’t offer much else.

Craig Wighton 7

Showed flashes of promise out on the right but didn’t receive enough of the ball. Excellent header to break the deadlock.

Liam Boyce 6

Led the line admirably and worked hard throughout but missed a big chance when it finally arrived in the second half. Made up for it with the winning penalty.


Peter Haring (for Roberts, 56’) 5

Added physicality to the midfield.

Steven Naismith (for Walker, 56’) 6

Teed up Boyce for a great chance and looked dangerous.

Aidy White (for Wighton, 84’) 6

Won the all-important penalty.

Euan Henderson (for Lee, 96’) 5

Couple of nice passes.

Andy Irving (for Halliday, 118’) N/A

Not enough time to make impact.
