Hearts secured a major boost in their fight for survival last night with a big win over neighbours Hibs.

Going into this game off the back of a shock Scottish Cup win over Rangers, the Jambos had some belief that they could topple a Hibs team who had only lost once post-winter break.

After a compact first half, Daniel Stendel’s men turned on the style during the remaining 45 minutes. Sean Clare got things going from the penalty spot six minutes after the restart before Oliver Bozanic doubled their lead.

It was going according to plan and Conor Washington’s strike ten minutes from time capped off a truly stunning night for the Tynecastle club. Melker Hallberg got a consolation for Hibs in the dying embers.

It’s a result which moves Hearts off bottom, getting them closer to St Mirren and safety in tenth. Stendel’s men have proven that they can take their game to high heights when they are on top form and some Hearts fans have been left delighted with this fantastic showing.
