Dejection for Hibernian striker James Collins as Fraser Forster makes another save
Dejection for Hibernian striker James Collins as Fraser Forster makes another save

Forced into save from Stanton first half, then even better one from same kid in second half. Acrobatic tip over from Zoubir then parry from same man.

FISHER (6) Subjected to heavy treatment last time at Easter Road, and youngster still looked a little light-weight this time. Postioning in question on occasion.

AMBROSE (7) As ever, provided much-needed help and assurance to Fisher outside him. Steady performance.

VAN DIJK (8) Subject of a penalty appeal early in game when Collins turned him, but striker went down too easily to get decision. Endured tough, physical test, but came out smiling with stunning free-kick goal.

IZAGUIRRE (7) Beaten in air at back post by Nelson, but header straight at Forster. Important clearance when Collins set to shoot into open net.

BROWN (8) Moved further forward in midfield, and gave good cover on right to full-back Fisher. Dogged display as he fought for every ball.

BITON (5) Given start been craving, protecting central defenders. Careless in possession and needs to be more aware of opponent's position. Hooked at half-time.

MULGREW (6) Started deeper and more central than of late, so much more involved, as a consequence. Moved wide towards end of first half as part of re-adjustments, then back into middle for second half.

LEDLEY (7) Pushed up, looking to join in attacks, but always conscious of his defensive duties. Plugged gaps in midfield, as they appeared.

COMMONS (7) Another game, another two goals for the man who has now hit the 21 mark. More dangerous playing in space behind, but put in a shift as focal point of attack until dropped deeper to accommodate Pukki's arrival.

SAMARAS (6) Back after niggly injuries and contract negotiations. At exasperating best/worst as he linked up with Commons in attack.

PUKKI (6) On for Biton at break. Stuck at it and got reward with goal, before winning penalty for fourth.

BALDE (3) Replaced Sami for final six minutes.

JOHANSEN (3) Collected first win bonus as sub for Mulgrew in dying minutes.
