Hibs come from behind to earn a point against St Mirren

Hibs had to come from behind to secure a vital point in yesterday’s game against St Mirren.

The Easter Road side found themselves two goals down after strikes from Conor McCarthy and Tony Andreu.

Scott Allan and Christian Doidge had chances for Hibs before Allan eventually found the net to pull one back.

St Mirren almost restored their two-goal advantage when a Macpherson free-kick was severely fumbled by Ofir Marciano, who recovered before any significant damage was done.

Doidge drew the game level when he headed home a Stephane Omeonga’s cross and the game ended 2-2.

Hibernian head coach Jack Ross: “Over the last two or three months our home record has been good. However, the circumstances of the game changed that a little bit.

“We had to show character and resilience to come back. It wasn’t one of our better days overall but when you have a game like that and still take something from it then that’s encouraging.”

St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin: “When you go two up you need to manage the game a little bit better and I’m kind of kicking myself a little bit because we carried on pressing.

“In doing that we probably allowed Scott Allan too much space in behind. And that allows Hibs back in to the game.

“Fair play to them. The draw is probably a fair result.”
