Terry Butcher hails the spirit of his Hibernian players during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Partick Thistle in the Scottish Premiership.

Hibernian boss Terry Butcher has praised the spirit of his players during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Partick Thistle in the Scottish Premiership.

Kris Doolan looked to have earned Partick the points at Easter Road before James Collins scored late on to secure Hibs a share of the spoils.

"It feels like a victory in many respects," Butcher told BBC Sport. "It's about spirit and togetherness."

"It's great spirit, determination and perseverance from the players. They kept going, and I don't know how many crosses we put in the box and how many corners we had.

"If you keep going and keep going, and there's a belief there, sooner rather than later you'll get something from it."

Hibs continue their Scottish Premiership campaign next Saturday when they make the trip to champions Celtic.
