The Hibees will look to keep the momentum going this week as we head to Dingwall in the Premier League on Tuesday night.
Lee Johnson’s side will come into the game full of confidence after a comprehensive 6-0 win over Aberdeen at the weekend.
Josh Campbell scored his first senior career hat-trick and added two assists as he produced a man-of-the-match performance. Will Fish, Kevin Nisbet and Élie Youan were also on target in what was a complete display from start to finish at Easter Road.
We have now taken seven points from our last nine available points with wins over Motherwell, Aberdeen and a draw against Dundee United.
That form lifted us up to fifth in first place, two points behind Livingston who sit one place above us.
Ross County currently sit joint bottom of first place on 20 points, although it is incredibly tight with Motherwell, Dundee United and Kilmarnock all tied at the foot of the table.
The Staggies will come into this one high on confidence, after an important win over Kilmarnock at the weekend.
Malky Mackay’s side won 3-0 in Dingwall with Eamonn Brophy, Yan Dhanda and Jordan White all on target. It was County’s first win in their last nine games (all competitions).
HEAD TO HEAD
Both teams have met twice this season, with the away side emerging victorious on each occasion.
The Hibees ran out 2-0 winners on our last visit to the Global Energy Stadium, with Ryan Porteous and Martin Boyle on target in October 2022.
The following month, Ross County came out on top at Easter Road with goals from George Harmon and Alex Iacovitti.
There are no new injury concerns ahead of this one. Academy youngsters Josh O’Connor and Oscar MacIntyre were both involved against Aberdeen and could feature again on Tuesday.
New signing CJ Egan-Riley joined the Hibees on Monday and will be available for selection on Tuesday.
Unfortunately, Martin Boyle, Rocky Bushiri, Kyle Magennis, Mykola Kuharevich and Jake Doyle-Hayes will all miss out.
