Goodbye

FT: Hibernian 1-1 Dundee Utd

That's all folks. It's all about the build up for Scotland now.

Lithuania are at Hampden next Saturday. Can we stay top of the group?

Enjoy what's left of your weekend.

Hibernian manager Neil Lennon speaking to BBC Radio Scotland

"It's been like that for three games when we need a second goal. You need to have that composure in front of goal. The decision making was poor. If you don't take those chances you give yourself a headache.

"There are some of the players out there who didn't play anywhere near their level.

"It's not a major concern for me yet but it will be if it continues in the same vein."

What next?

FT: Hibernian 1-1 Dundee Utd

No Championship action next weekend because Scotland are playing Lithuania and Slovakia in World Cup qualifying.

The Irn Bru Cup does go on, however, with Hibs at home to St Mirren on Saturday and Dundee United at Stranraer.

When the league does resume, Hibs visit Raith Rovers and United go to St Mirren.

Toshney concern for Terrors

FT: Hibernian 1-1 Dundee Utd

United boss Ray McKinnon fears that Lewis Toshney has done some serious damage to his ankle ligaments and the big defender could be facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines. He'll get an X-ray to assess the damage later.

Dundee United manager Ray McKinnon speaking to BBC Radio Scotland

"It was important that we took something from the game.

"With so many guys missing through injury, the players deserve great credit for their efforts. Scott Fraser really shone today in a role that he's not accustomed to.

"We spoke at half time about having more belief in the final third. I thought we might have sneaked the winner but we're happy with a point."

Queens lead the way

BBC

Big crowd, poor show

FT: Hibernian 1-1 Dundee Utd

With an attendance of 15,492 at Easter Road, it's obvious what these teams would bring to the top flight. But would they bring anything to the table in terms of the quality of Premiership entertainment? On this evidence, that's debatable.

FT: Hibernian 1-1 Dundee Utd

Having missed out via the play-offs in the past two seasons, Hibs were short odds favourites to win the Championship this time. However, that's three games without a win for Neil Lennon's side and there are only six points covering the top five.

'Fair result'

FT: Hibernian 1-1 Dundee Utd

Former Hibs and Dundee Utd midfielder John Rankin on BBC Sportsound:

"For spells in the first half Hibs were the more dominant force but it switched in the second half.

"Dundee United were the stronger side for 10 minutes after they scored.

"It was an even match and a draw is a fair result."

FULL-TIME Hibernian 1-1 Dundee Utd

More than a few boos from the home fans as the points are shared in a largely drab match.

It means Hibs miss the chance to go top, leaving unbeaten Queen of the South one point clear. United stay fifth but will probably be the happier side, having come from behind.

CLOSE!

Hibernian 1-1 Dundee Utd

James Keatings goes for run across the face of the United defence and thunders in a shot that Cammy Bell does well to push away. From the corner, Jordon Forster has a free header and the ball bobbles around in the six yard box before Bell flops over it under pressure from Darren McGregor.

STOPPAGE TIME

Hibernian 1-1 Dundee Utd

We'll get three more minutes at Easter Road...

Hibernian 1-1 Dundee Utd

Former Hibs midfielder John Rankin on BBC Sportsound:

"For me, the game changed when David Gray went off at half time. Hibs miss his forward runs and his balls into the box."

Hibernian 1-1 Dundee Utd

Not long to go now. Will we get a winner? I'm not sure either side deserves one. Lots of huff and puff but not a great deal of quality on show.

Hibernian 1-1 Dundee Utd

A Hollywood cross-field pass from Paul Hanlon is gathered on the run by Dylan McGeough but United manage to squeeze the midfielder's low cross behind for a corner. Hanlon fouls Cammy Smith from the set-piece and the pressure is relieved.

Hibernian 1-1 Dundee Utd

Tope Obadeyi has got Neal Eardley on toast, getting past his man every time. He stands up a decent cross and Paul Hanlon does well to head clear from inside the six yard box.

Hibs new boy Eardley hasn't played a competitive game since January but he only came on at half-time.

Substitutes

Hibernian 1-1 Dundee Utd

Double change for Hibs and neither Jason Cummings or Andrew Shinnie look best pleased about being replaced as Brian Graham and Martin Boyle come on.

Hibernian 1-1 Dundee Utd

TV replays suggest that the corner from which United scored should have been a goal kick. Tough luck on Hibs but it doesn't excuse the poor defending from the set-piece.

Hibernian 1-1 Dundee Utd

United have their tails up now. How will HIbs respond? The home side have a lot of good ball players but they are a shade one-paced in midfield. James Keatings and Jason Cummings have been starved of decent service in this second half.

GOAL Hibernian 1-1 Dundee Utd

William Edjenguele

Scott Fraser whips in a corner and William Edjenguele doesn't really have to jump to thump a powerful header past Ofir Marciano.

It was the substitute Tope Obadeyi who won the corner with a strong run.
