Lennon hit by object from crowd as Hearts denied last-minute derby winner

Stevie Mallan free-kick

Hibs manager Neil Lennon was struck in the face by an object thrown from the crowd as Hearts had what would have been a stoppage-time winner disallowed in a ferocious Edinburgh derby.

Clevid Dikamona's 91st-minute header was ruled offside before a celebrating Lennon was hit from the main stand.

Hearts' lead in the Scottish Premiership was cut to four points after the draw, in which Hibs held on for 25 minutes with 10 men after the controversial sending off of Florian Kamberi for two bookable offences.

The Swiss striker, who had been booked towards the end of the first half, was shown a second yellow card for barging into Oliver Bozanic as they challenged for a high ball.

Craig Levein's injury-ravaged Hearts side created little but held firm at the back in their first game since the League Cup semi-final defeat by Celtic.

Hibs had the best chances, with Stevie Mallan striking the bar and going close with two first-half free-kicks.

But they had to settle for a point that edges them up to fifth, with Neil Lennon's side sitting eight adrift of Hearts with a game in hand.
