  1. Old Firm Thursday next

    That's all from me for tonight. Watch out for more quotes from the Hibs and St Mirren managers later.

    Our attention next turns to Europa League Thursday, when Rangers travel to Netherlands to face Dick Advocaat's Feynoord as Steven Gerrard's side look to join city rivals Celtic in the knock-out stage.

    Neil Lennon's side are already assured of progress as they host Rennes.

    Join us then...

  2. Fifers miss table-top chance

    Scottish League One

    It was stalemates all round in Scottish League One as both games finished goalless and the two Fife clubs missed a chance to overtake Airdrieonians at the top of the table.

    Raith Rovers could not manage a fourth consecutive home win as they were held by struggling Forfar Athletic, who ended a run of seven defeats in a row.

    East Fife remain behind their neighbours and are now one behind the Diamonds after being held at home by Clyde, but at least the stopped the rot of two home defeats in a row.

    The visitors' point leaves them a point and place behind sixth-placed Dumbarton.

  3. Thistle stay bottom

    FT: Partick Thistle 1-1 Alloa Athletic

    Partick Thistle's revival under new manager Ian McCall is halted as they fail to win a fourth game on the bounce after being held at home by Alloa.

    The Glasgow side remain unbeaten in five games against the visitors but also stay bottom of the Championship, two points behind the part-timers.

    Alloa, who are now unbeaten in three games, edge to within two points of third-bottom Morton after Alan Trouten's opener was cancelled out by Thistle's Dario Zanatta.

    Partick Thistle's Jamie Penrice is left disappointed
  4. Goodwin 'disappointed' but 'proud'

    FT: St Mirren 1-2 Hibernian

    St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin is "very proud" of his players and preferred to see the positives despite the defeat.

    "I think our performance overall, particular in the second half, merited something out of the game," he says.

    "The second half was the most comfortable we've had for some time and we can take something from it.

    "We had a number of chances and it's the same old story - we don't make the most of them.

    "I felt that, at 1-0, if we had got a goal, there was only one winner. If we play like that consistently, we'll have nothing to fear."

  5. Ross eyes fifth-top Killie

    FT: St Mirren 1-2 Hibernian

    Hibs head coach Jack Ross tells BBC Scotland he is delighted to have moved to within three points of Kilmarnock ahead of this weekend's meeting with Angelo Alessio's side.

    "We won and we're delighted to win as I know how tough it was going to be as St Mirren are good at home," he says.

    "But there are lots of things we can do better and we looked a bit leggy by the end.

    "St Mirren pushed and pushed and we did a lot of things to try to stem that and it was only late on with the introduction of Martin Boyle that we were able to stretch them. Winning the penalty was a key moment.

    "This was a huge game for us as it puts us in a decent position to push on."

  6. St Mirren home run ended

    FT: St Mirren 1-2 Hibernian

    St Mirren boss Paul Goodwin saw light at the end of the tunnel on Saturday after ending a run of three straight defeats, all away from home, with Saturday's win over Ross County in Paisley.

    He said before the game that, while they had been poor at home, they could look with pleasure to a four-game unbeaten home run.

    But now that has gone too.

  7. Fine margins

    FT: St Mirren 1-2 Hibernian

    Paul Heckingbottom must be having a quizzical, if not frustrated, look at his former Hibs charges.

    Yes, it is three wins in a row since the Englishman was sacked, but Hibs have now only lost once - to all-conquering Celtic in the League Cup semi-final - in their last nine outings.

    It just shows the slim margins involved in football management. If they had turned any of those five league draws in a row into victories, he might still be in a job.

    Hibs celebrate
  8. Lack of luck for Buddies

    FT: St Mirren 1-2 Hibernian

    Steven Thompson

    Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: The first goal is a wicked deflection and it's a needless thing to do from Gary MacKenzie to give away the penalty. St Mirren haven't carried a lot of luck tonight and I think Jim Goodwin will be disappointed with that
  9. FULL-TIME RESULTS

    Scottish Premiership

    St Mirren 1-2 Hibernian

    Scottish Championship

    Partick Thistle 1-1 Alloa Athletic

    Scottish League One

    East Fife 0-0 Clyde

    Raith Rovers 0-0 Forfar Athletic

  10. FULL-TIME St Mirren 1-2 Hibernian

    It is, indeed, too little, too late for St Mirren as that late Junior Morais reply is not enough to avoid defeat.

    Hibs move to within three points of fifth-placed Kilmarnock in the Premiership following their second win in a row under Jack Ross - and third in succession since sacking Paul Heckingbottom.

    That Christian Doidge deflected header in the first half and a Stevie Mallan penalty is enough to keep St Mirren third bottom, still ahead of Hamilton Academical and St Johnstone on goal difference.

  11. Is it too late for St Mirren?

    Alan Stubbs

    Former Hibs manager on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: St Mirren definitely deserved a goal in this game, but it's just whether it's came too late or not
  12. Post update

    St Mirren 1-2 Hibernian

    The ball is bouncing dangerously around the Hibs penalty box as St Mirren apply more late pressure.

    Hibs are hanging on, but an offside flag relieves the pressure.

  13. 'Not over yet'

    St Mirren 1-2 Hibernian

    Steven Thompson

    Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Danny Mullen does ever so well in the build-up, but there's big question mark of offside as Junior Morias puts it in. This might not be over yet
  14. GOAL St Mirren 1-2 Hibernian

    Junior Morias

    What was I saying? Maybe there is time after all.

    Danny Mullen has his shot blocked and fellow substitute Junior Morias is on hand to fire it into the net from close range.

    Goal
  15. Post update

    St Mirren 0-2 Hibernian

    Time is fast running out on St Mirren, but they have four minutes of stoppage time to find two goals. Unlikely though.

  16. CLOSE!

    St Mirren 0-2 Hibernian

    Hibs have the St Mirren defence in all kind of knots inside their own penalty box, but the home side break quickly thanks to a Stevie Mallan slip and go so close to pulling a goal back.

    Sam Foley comes off the wing, opens up his body nicely, but his side-footed effort curls just wide of the far post.

  17. Definite spot kick

    St Johnstone 0-2 Hibernian

    Alan Stubbs

    Former Hibs manager on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: It's a blistering turn of pace from Martin Boyle and it's a definite penalty. I'm surprised the referee even paused before making the decision
  18. Score flatters Hibs

    St Johnstone 0-2 Hibernian

    Steven Thompson

    Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: I think 2-0 flatters Hibs, but that's football for you. St Mirren haven't taken their chances
  19. GOAL St Mirren 0-2 Hibernian

    Stevie Mallan

    Stevie Mallan strokes home the spot kick as goalkeeper Vaclav Hladky sprawls in the opposite direction.

    Hibs have a two-goal cushion without having been much of a threat since the break.

    Goal
  20. PENALTY

    St Mirren 0-1 Hibernian

    Martin Boyle has his first chance to show his electric speed and he is brought down by Gary MacKenzie as the big St Mirren defender struggles to keep pace.
