Broken Hearts as Kerr strikes early for Hibs

Hearts 0 Hibernian 1

With Gordon in line for a £9million (€13.2 million) switch to Sunderland or Aston Villa, his replacement Steve Banks saw just two minutes of action before Kerr headed home.

Steven Fletcher reached David Murphy’s long ball to the left corner and his hooked cross found its way to the back post, where the onrushing Kerr stooped to head home.

Hearts struggled to create chances and Hibs could have added to their total as they ended a three-game losing streak against the Jambos.

HEARTS: Banks, Neilson, Zaliukas, Karipidis, Wallace, Mikoliunas (Makela 66), Tall (Jonsson 59), Stewart, Driver, Ksanavicius, Beniusis (Pospisil 70). HIBERNIAN: Yves Kalambay, McCann, Hogg, Jones, Murphy, Donaldson (Benjelloun 46), Kerr, Beuzelin, Stevenson, Fletcher (O’Brien 56), Zemmama (Morais 75).

Referee: S Dougal (Scotland).
