  6. Penalty frustration for Canning

    FT: Hamilton Academical 0-0 Partick Thistle

    Hamilton Academical manager Martin Canning also felt his side should have had been awarded a penalty, citing challenges on Greg Docherty and Antonio Rojano.

    "I thought both of them were penalties," he said. "I haven't seen them back yet, but I thought the pull on Greg Docherty, he just pulled him straight to the ground.

    "And the second one with Rojano, he gives a free-kick on the edge. It looked like it was in the box to me.

    "I haven't seen [Partick Thistle's penalty claim] back yet either, whether it was or whether it wasn't.

    "That's football. Sometimes you get them, sometimes you don't and tonight neither of us have got anything."

  7. Fox could miss six to eight weeks

    FT: St Johnstone 0-0 Ross County

    Ross County manager Owen Coyle was pleased with the point against St Johnstone.

    "I thought we played a lot of good football and created a lot of good chances," he told BBC Scotland.

    "At times, we had to stand up to some balls into our box and we had to stand up to that.

    "A draw was probably fair.

    "It is seven points from four games and that's a good return and we're going in the right direction."

    The downside for Coyle was a thigh injury that forced off goalkeeper Scott Fox.

    "It is a tear in his quad and the worst case scenario is six to eight weeks," he said.

  8. 'It's a start' - Kerr

    Scotland 5-0 Albania

    Scotland Women head coach Shelley Kerr says it is still early days for her side as her side made it two wins from two in their World Cup qualifying group.

    She told BBC Scotland: "It's a start. We're not getting carried away.

    "In the first half, I don't think we played particularly well, but that's the demands we put on them.

    "We scored some really good goals and we certainly used the wide areas well.

    "We've not had a lot of time with the players, so to implement our strategy and the way we want to play is going to take time."

  9. 'Lack of quality' - Levein

    FT: Hibernian 1-0 Hearts

    Hearts head coach Craig Levein admitted that his patchwork side were well beaten.

    "It was very bitty and we did not get going at all," he told BBC Scotland.

    "We did not do ourselves justice - as we were not willing to bring the ball down and make passes.

    "I will be grateful to get a few players back from injury and that will help us.

    "We had a couple of players out of position, but that is no excuse.

    "We had plenty of effort, but I would have liked us to do more in possession and that was the biggest disappointment."

  10. Archibald unhappy with referee McLean

    FT: Hamilton Academical 0-0 Partick Thistle

    Partick Thistle manager Alan Archibald was left mystified why a shot from Ryan Edwards that was bloked by Dougie Imrie did not result in a penalty.

    "He blocked it with his hands like a goalkeeper," he told BBC Scotland.

    Archibald also questioned the decision to hand the game to referee Steven McLean so soon after a controversial League Cup semi-final between Motherwell and Rangers.

    The Thistle boss though McLean was scared to make a decision.

    "But I am delighted with the clean sheet as it's the first one in the league," he added.

    "I think Hamilton only had the one chance and I'm delighted with the boys at the back."

  11. 'We were exceptional' - Lennon

    FT: Hibernian 1-0 Hearts

    Hibs head coach Neil Lennon described it as an excellent night for his side.

    "I think happy is an understatement," he told BBC Scotland after the 1-0 win over Hearts.

    I thought we were exceptional and that's as good a performance as I've had here.

    "They've got what they deserved and that level of performance was excellent.

    "I would have liked the scoreline to be a bit more comfortable."

  12. 'Satisfactory start' - Wright

    FT: St Johnstone 0-0 Ross County

    St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright was pleased just to have ended a run of three straight defeats.

    "We're not having many breaks in front of goal and that was evident tonight," he told BBC Scotland after the 0-0 draw with Ross County.

    "I have to be pleased with the clean sheets.

    "15 points from 11 games is a satisfactory start.

    "With a bit more composure, we should have won the game."

    Wright explained that Joe Shaughnessy was handed the captaincy despite Steven Anderson's return from injury because he wanted to take some of the pressure off the veteran defender.

    "By his admission, he hasn't been at his best this season and I thought that was one of his best performances of the season," he added.

  13. Poor recruitment by Hearts

    BBC Scotland summariser

    Quote Message: Craig Levein has a job on his hands to get a team out of that. If you are someone who is involved in picking players for Hearts, you deserve your jotters. They have no width in their team
  14. Not many Hibs chances

    FT: Hibernian 1-0 Hearts

    Tom English

    Chief sports writer, BBC Scotland

    Quote Message: Hibs were totally on top, but they didn't have many chances and that's an area they need to improve on. How many Hearts players would you be picking in a combined side? Not too many
  15. Hibs clearly better side

    FT: Hibernian 1-0 Hearts

    Steven Thompson

    Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Hearts were so predictable. Long ball after long ball. To say they were ordinary side would be a complement. Hibernian were the better side by some way
  16. FULL-TIME St Johnstone 0-0 Ross County

    Saints ended the game the stronger, but it is now over six hours - and four successive blanks - for Saints in the Premiership.

    The point does move Tommy Wright's side above Hearts, but they remain in sixth place because Hibs leapfrog them both after that Edinburgh derby win.

  17. FULL-TIME Hibernian 1-0 Hearts

    Simon Murray's early goal gives Hibs victory in the first Edinburgh derby of the season.

    But it was much more convincing than the scoreline suggests.

  18. FULL-TIME Hamilton Academical 0-0 Partick Thistle

    It was a dull affair in Hamilton, but at least both sides can take some positives out of the game.

    For Accies, the draw not only keeps them above their visitors in the Premiership table but ends a run of six straight defeats.

    Thistle's point lifts them off the bottom of the table, a point above Kilmarnock, although the Ayrshire outfit have two games in hand.

  19. Post update

    Hibernian 1-0 Hearts

    Oli Shaw comes on for Martin Boyle as Hibs waste time with a substitution and we are into two minutes of stoppage time.


    Hibernian 1-0 Hearts

    At 16, Harry Cochrane hasn't been a professional long, but that's a professional foul as he cynically takes out John McGinn and is rightly booked.
