Griffiths seals point for Hibs

Published Add your comment

Leigh Griffiths restored some local pride for Hibernian as he earned them a Clydesdale Bank Premier League 1-1 draw in the first Edinburgh derby since their William Hill Scottish Cup final thrashing by Hearts.

Griffiths was a constant menace and finished off a slick move 30 seconds before half-time to allow Hibs fans some respite from the taunting of the visitors to Easter Road.

Alan Maybury had earlier gifted his former club the opener on his Hibernian debut when Andrew Driver pounced on his short header back to goalkeeper Ben Williams, and Hearts stretched their unbeaten derby run to 12 games.
