There's a one sided match report in the link below.  It's disappointing to lose but that sounds like a prety experienced rangers development team and their winner sounds a bit controversial.


Ross County: Aaron MacCarey; Reghan Tumilty, Christopher McLaughlin, Sam Morrison, David Brownlie, Dylan Dykes, Tony Dingwall, Russell Dingwall, Greg Morrison, James Wallace, Ross MacIver
Subs: Mark Fodden, Tom MacLennan, Matthew Hall, Blair Malcolm, Davis Keillor-Dunn
Goals: MacIver 28’, T Dingwall 60’
I was told Waghorn had to go of due to a punctured lung,

Yeah sound ,well done ,your right,you mentioned it earlier. But in the defence of my information,a broken rib can cause a punctured lung.
Sleep well
We won 2-0


The Hibernian Development Squad came out on the wrong side of a top of the table result, as they suffered a 2-0 defeat to Ross County on Tuesday afternoon at Oriam, writes Andrew Fleming.

Second half strikes from Reghan Tumilty and Christopher McLaughlin meant that the visitors secured all three points, despite the home side’s large amount of first half chances.

Hibernian started brightly, using the ball well in the early stages, but neither team had worked any real chances until the 13th minute, when McLaughlin tried his luck from distance, but his left-footed drive failed to trouble Patrick Martin.

The hosts had the ball in the net on 16 minutes, when Ryan Porteous connected with a Sean Mackie delivery, but the flag was raised for offside.

Ten minutes later, shouts for a penalty rang around Oriam, when Oli Shaw went to ground under the challenge of David Brownlie, but the referee dismissed the claims and waved play on.

The best chance of the half came after 39 minutes, when Lewis Allan’s deflected effort from Stirling’s cross came close to breaking the deadlock, but the ball fell just wide of the target, with goalkeeper, Mark Foden beaten.

There was still time for another big opportunity for Hibernian as half-time loomed, when Shaw’s close range strike was cleared off the line by the visiting defence.

Five minutes after the break, the hosts came agonisingly close to taking the lead yet again, when Lewis Allan found himself one-on-one. He placed his shot past the onrushing goalkeeper, but could only watch as the ball crashed off the crossbar and was cleared for a corner.

The Staggies responded well to this opportunity and quickly worked a chance of their own, when a stunning overhead kick from Ross MacIver had Martin beaten, but was only denied by the post. James Wallace followed up with the rebound, but was judged to be offside.

Within minutes, County did take the lead, when a ball over the top released Tumilty, who smashed the ball into the back of the net.

Their lead was doubled almost instantly as the ball was played up field and a free-kick was awarded, shortly before the hour mark. McLaughlin struck the set-piece powerfully, and Martin could only parry the ball in the bottom corner.

Both teams successfully cancelled each other out for the remainder of the second half, with the ball being won back multiple times in midfield, limiting chances at the either end of the pitch.

The last clearcut chance came 15 minutes from time, when Callum Crane’s long ball into the box was met by Shaw, but he failed to direct his header past the keeper.

After the final whistle, Grant Murray explained it was a hard result to take especially after a strong first half display but admitted the performance level dipped below the high standard his team have set since the start of the season.

He said: “When you look from the outside, it’s a top of the table clash, so first and foremost it’s disappointing to lose it - I felt that we did put a lot into the game.

“I reckon we had more possession during the ninety minutes but it’s about creating chances when you’ve got that possession, and we didn’t create as many as we’d hoped.”

“The two clear-cut chances we did have, obviously Lewis does brilliantly, but it comes off the bar and Oli is unlucky with one.

“But credit to Ross County, they come down here and get themselves a goal up and come more into the game. They got that crucial second goal, which makes it far more difficult to recover from.”

On the overall performance, Grant said: “We were unlucky at times but sometimes the delivery from out wide wasn’t great especially in the second half, but I think that just shows the consistency levels the guys have set, which is why they’ve won games of football and why they are sitting the in the league where they are.”

Hibernian Development Squad: P. Martin; Stirling, Porteous, Waugh, Crane; I. Murray, Trialist, Gullan, Mackie; Allan, Shaw. Subs not used: Smith, Watson, F. Murray
Congrats to Mr Ferguson on gaining his UEFA Pro Licence!

Not so good today. Lost 4-1 to Kilmarnock!

Great result!

Surprised to see that Report say Aberdeen were up against an "experienced" County side, just Franks that I can see?  (Unless it was Tony rather than Russell, even then thats only two first team squad players).

Ross County: Foden, Malcolm, McLaughlin (Hall 83), Morrison, Brownlie, MacLennan, Franks, Dingwall, McIlvor, Wallace (Paterson 88), Keillor-Dunn (Ramsey 91)
Subs: Munro, Kelly.

Delighted to see that Report say "It was very much a game of two halves".
Under-used imo.  Wink

That photo also looks like Jackson Irvine  Heart  
Goodwillie left the club today after putting in a request to have his contract terminated, says he wants to focus on his appeal. Mature decision.
Lost 0-4 last night against the Pars. I know nothing about the game other than the result. Still 3rd in the table one off top and goal difference of second with 2 games in hand over 2nd.
2-2 at home to St Johnstone this afternoon, Tony and Morrison the scorers.

Good to see Tony's name appearing again, was hoping he had not completely fallen off the radar.
2-0 against Partick at the moment. Partick fielding an incredibly young side.
Excellent 4-1 result over Hearts today.  Takes the lads to second in the table below Hibs with a game in hand.
Another good result against Dundee last night, 1-0.  Well done lads.  Game in hand over Hibs who are top, just one point ahead of us.
Match report here.


Well done guys!
Pity we can't transfer this kind of form to the first XI!
