Hibs were swept aside again in league action, losing their third league game on the spin away to Kilmarnock.

Goals from Liam Millar and Mohamed El Makrini in the second half sealed a decent win for the home side. It piled the misery on the visitors though, who are winless in the Premiership since the opening day.

Some Hibs fans were not happy with their side after another poor showing.

The worrying thing about Hibs’ recent performances is that there doesn’t seem to be a positive solution. It’s the same story over and over again in recent matches.

This was almost a carbon copy of their 3-0 defeat to Motherwell before the break. For a 30 minute spell Hibs were ok, not great, but doing enough to keep themselves in the match.

Laurentiu Branescu was tested a couple of times, but once Millar put Killie in front, it was virtually game over. Hibs curled into a ball and waited for their inevitable defeat.

There’s no leadership in the team, no grit and the midfield especially is woeful. Time and time again the defence, which is also on a shaky nail, became vulnerable to Killie attacks.

Heckingbottom is quickly losing support from the stands. If this form keeps up, the board at Easter Road will be forced to make a big decision over his future.
