St Mirren thumped Hibernian 3-0 in Leith after a dismal first half performance from the home side.

Hibs conceded three goals in the opening 45 minutes and the Easter Road faithful failed to hide their feelings, booing the side throughout.

It was a nightmare start for the Hibees as former player Alex Gogic thundered a header past David Marshall within ten minutes, getting on the end of a beautiful cross from Caolan Boyd-Munce.

Hibs’ performance didnt improve, they continued to struggle creating chances as they failed to muster a single shot in the first half.

St Mirren then double their lead on the 34th minute; Greg Kiltie converted from the penalty spot after Willie Columm gave a controversial handball against Hibs’ deadline day signing Nectarios Triantis.

The half ended the same way it began, with Hibs conceding a header, this time it was Caolan Boyd-Munce scoring at the back post from a corner with all the space in the world.

That was the final action of the first half as the side walked off to a chorus of boos from the home stands.

Nick Montgomery made a triple substitution at half-time in an attempt to change the game, however, they never looked like overcoming the first half deficit as St Mirren professionally saw the game out.

Hibs did create a handful of half-chances but never truly threatened the Buddies goal.

It was a truly worrying performance from Montgomery’s men, after a busy January transfer window more would’ve been expected from their new singings.

Hibs are now without a win in six league games, and their upcoming run of fixtures isn’t easy, first up is Celtic at home on Wednesday night.
