    Thank you and goodbye.

  2. Post update

    That's almost it from me. There will be highlights of all of yesterday's Scottish Premiership matches on the BBC Sport website later today and on Sportscene at 22:25 BST on BBC One Scotland. The Edinburgh derby will also be featured on Sportscene and on the BBC Sport website thereafter.

  3. Post update

    Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson

    "It was very tight and competitive. Sam's got great ability and technique and if he gets into those pockets, he can produce things like that. We rode our luck a little bit but over the piece we did enough to merit the win."

  4. Post update

    Hibernian manager Alan Stubbs

    "At times, when we did pass it, we looked decent enough. But it's all about results. We showed some really encouraging signs today. We need to turn performances into results. We will look to strengthen if we can."


    Scott Robertson had a miserable day for Hibs - beaten for Hearts' first goal, penalised for the spot-kick that was converted by Buaben and sent off for two yellow cards.

    Prince Buaben's penalty proved to be the winner.

    Andrew Priestley: "75 minutes of nothing; and then suddenly 3 goals, 2 red cards, a penalty and a whole lot of drama come along! Sheer madness! #bbcsportscot"

    Tom English

    BBC Scotland at Tynecastle

    "Nicholson's goal was a terrific goal, a really class goal. Hibs, for the most part, were a dreadful disappointment. Seven yellow cards, it was a complete and utter battle."

  9. Post update

    Rob Maclean

    BBC Radio Scotland commentator

    "It's been a disappointing day ultimately for Hibs, it's all celebrations for Hearts."


    Hearts 2-1 Hibernian

    Not the best Edinburgh derby but it did generate plenty of talking points. Two stunning goals, two penalties - one missed - and two red cards. In the end, it's Hearts who take the points.


    A minute left.

  12. GOAL

    Hearts 2-1 Hibernian (El Alagui)

    Hibs have a lifeline. Farid El Alagui juggles the ball over Danny Wilson and volleys past Jack Hamilton. Excellent goal.


    Four minutes of stoppage time begin.

  14. #bbcsportscot

    Robbie Devenney: "Scott Robertson, responsible for both goals should have subbed well before either #bbcsportscot"

  15. Post update

    Scott Allan's shot is deflected out off a Hibs team-mate. It's just not been the visitors' day.

  16. RED CARD

    Hearts' Osman Sow is dismissed for catching Michael Nelson with an elbow. Both sides now down to 10 men.

  17. Post update

    The 10 men of Hibs are having one of their best spells of the match with much more urgency in the final third but it all looks a little late with time running out.

  18. Post update

    James Keatings comes on for Sam Nicholson for Hearts as Hibs' Danny Handling makes way for Scott Allan.


    Farid El Alagui has a great chance to reduce Hibs' lead with a free header from a free-kick but goalkeeper Jack Hamilton palms away.

  23. RED CARD

    And Scott Robertson is sent off after receiving a second booking.


    Now Hearts have a penalty after Scott Robertson pushes Prince Buaben in the box.

  25. Post update

    A superb strike by Nicholson, his first goal of the season.

  26. GOAL

    Hearts 1-0 Hibernian (Nicholson)

    Sam Nicholson escapes Scott Robertson as he works his way into a central position and then batters the ball past Mark Oxley.

  27. Post update

    Less than 18 minutes of regulation time to go. Can either of these sides break the impasse?

  28. Post update

    Gary Oliver replaces Jason Holt for Hearts.


    And now Ozturk is booked for a lunge on Liam Craig.

  30. Post update

    Jason Holt tries to take the game by the scruff of the neck but weaving into a shooting position but his weak effort is easily collected by Hibs goalkeeper Mark Oxley.

  32. Post update

    Another mis-placed pass breaks up a Hibs attack. There's a tendency for both sides to go long but it's not really working.


    Hibernian's David Gray is yellow-carded for tripping Jamie Walker.

  34. Post update

    Hearts withdraw Billy King and send on Jamie Walker.

  35. Post update

    This second half has really yet to form any sort of pattern. A lot of misplaced passes and little action in either penalty area.

  36. Post update

    Rob Maclean

    BBC Radio Scotland commentator

    "It really is untidy stuff."

  37. Post update

    Osman Sow for once gets away from his marker to get to the byline and cut the ball back but Hibs clear.

    Tom English

    BBC Scotland at Tynecastle

    "There's no shortage of endeavour. They are almost trying too hard. Everyone just needs to calm down a bit. We've seen this movie a million times before. I just hope the respective managers tell them to calm down. The best teams in the world couldn't play at this pace and be accurate."


    Hearts 0-0 Hibernian

    No goals, plenty of incident and a bit of controversy. Both sides can claim they had the better of the first half in spells but it's still anybody's game.

  43. CLOSE!

    An attack at a Hearts corner ends when Jordan McGhee tries a half-volley from 20 yards and the ball swerves wide of goal.

    Jenni: "You simply cannot fail to hit the target with a penalty kick! That is unforgivable for a professional footballer to do. You must make the goalkeeper work."

    Hibs have a penalty.

  55. Post update

    Sam Nicholson does not get a hold of his snapshot on the edge of the Hibs penalty area and goalkeeper Mark Oxley gets a rare touch of the ball.

  56. TEXT 80295

    Andrew: "If Hearts can sneak a result against their fierce Edinburgh rivals this afternoon it would cap the perfect start to their Championship season. When the Hearts players and fans saw their opening fixtures vs Rangers and Hibs they must have feared the worst, but instead they have a massive opportunity to steal a march on their rivals so early on in the season."

    Rob Maclean

    BBC Radio Scotland commentator

  61. CLOSE!

    Liam Craig's free-kick into a good area is headed on by Michael Nelson with the ball slipping wide of Jack Hamilton's goal. Best chance or effort so far.

  71. Post update

    Tom English

    BBC Scotland at Tynecastle
