The result, and Hibs current place of sixth in the league table, had supporters questioning the team selection and depth of the squad after the result.

@AndyHaggon: “How much of Whittaker’s appearance fee does Lennon get? And anyone who doesn’t believe that I’m no a better player than Slivka, then I’ll meet u at Spartans anytime during the week to prove you wrong. Shambles.”

@shaunmeikle94: “Lennon one of the best managers we’ve ever had but two games on the bounce team selection has been dreadful horrendous to watch.”

@WinstonIngram: “Scott Allan wouldn’t have changed that today. Our lack of cover for Kamberi cost us.”

@Rafferty1993: “Maclaren needs service. He’s not Kamberi that can utilise other strengths to help the team. We’ve known since pretty much January that if we don’t have a midfield creating chances then Maclaren is pointless. Get Allan in and I hope that solves the problem.”

@mashyhfc: “Toothless performance today. Really missed Kamberi’s presence up top. Hyndman must get up on a Saturday morning and think ‘I can’t be arsed the day’.”

@HibernianFNH: “Too many not being played in their strongest positions. Boyle at CF, Horgan in a diamond. Shaw, Porteous on the bench, Milligan in defence. Whitty, Lewis running the wings. It’s not coming together as a plan. But let’s not get overly analytical, its one defeat not a crisis.”

@AidanDuffy07: “Darren McGregor most inconsistent player at hibs, Porteous has done absolutely nothing wrong and should be starting Friday.”

@SeanGilhooley98: “Wotherspoon and Craig done more at Hibs than Swanson yet we chant his name after his penalty miss against us :( “

@SteveStac21: “Decent window but only really consolidated last year’s side rather than building on it. Just such a Hibs result! Games like today and that one in Livi will undoubtedly cost us league places come May.”

@chrismurphy1875: “Poor Hibs. Don’t see why Ryan can’t start week in week out? & missing a good chunk of quality at the moment especially in that midfield area. Chin up, roll on Aberdeen.”

@moikl4: “See this is why you don’t pocket 3 odd million after selling your best player.”
