John Sutton hit the bar in the last minute of the Edinburgh derby

The third capital clash of season was scrappy and Hearts' Ryan Stevenson and substitute Jason Holt were left to rue missed second-half opportunities, while John Sutton hit the bar with a header in stoppage time.

After drawing two and winning one of the capital clashes this term, Hibs consolidated their fourth-placed position ahead of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League winter break, while Hearts remained ninth, six points behind their rivals with a game in-hand.
