Hibernian Ladies beat city rivals Heart of Midlothian Ladies 2-0 at Kings Park, Dalkeith yesterday.

Goals from Lia Tweedie and  Kirsty Smith was enough to secure the victory in the first ever competitive match between the teams.

After the game Hibs boss Chris Roberts told the club website: : “I was really pleased with the performance from the girls.  I felt that in the first half we created a lot of good chances and really should have been out of sight by half-time.

“We totally dominated but were not clinical enough in front of goal.After the break I thought Hearts were much-improved and more of a threat, however I always felt we were comfortable.

“Hearts had one really good chance when the score was only 1-0 and had it gone in, then that may have made it really difficult for us, but as soon as the second goal went in it was game over. The scoreline didn’t reflect the performance today.

“We need to be more clinical and convert more of the opportunities that we are creating. I feel it will eventually come and when it does finally click, then we will score a lot of goals.

“When Lia initially came into the set-up she was a centre-forward and because of her strength and versatility she has played a number of positions.

“I felt she did well against Hearts, she held the ball up well, linked the play and scored a good goal.”
