Hibs assistant boss Garry Parker hailed the performances of Ryan Gauld and Daryl Horgan as the Capital club advanced to the fifth round of the William Hill Scottish Cup.
On-loan Sporting CP midfielder Gauld set up the opener for Florian Kamberi, and showed exactly why the Easter Road side were so keen to secure his services.
Speaking after the 4-0 win over the Ladbrokes League Two side, Parker said: “Ryan’s a clever player, he can see a pass and that’s what’s we’ve been missing.
”He makes a difference for us.”
Asked about the performance of Republic of Ireland international Horgan, who scored twice, the Hibs No.2 added: “He’s scored two goals, even a header - he outjumped the goalie. He’s done well. It was a nice game to come in to after the break, and we’re just pleased to be in the next round.
”We need a big second half of the season from everybody, not just Daryl. We need a push now because we need to finish in the top six. That’s the target, that’s what we’ve told [the players].”
