BOV Player of the match Jake Grech (Hibernians).

Hibernians rose to fourth place in the Premier League standings when they beat Żebbuġ Rangers 2-0 at the Centenary Stadium last night.

A match which was moved from home soil to Ta’ Qali made no difference as the Paolites took home three precious points even if against a Żebbuġ side that was restricted to playing for almost 50 minutes with a player less following the dismissal of Travis Bartolo.

Hibernians were hoping to turn the page after three straight losses – a streak that cost former coach Andrea Pisanu his job at the club.
