Hibs eased to victory against a Ross County side that struggled to threaten in the Easter Road side’s first home league game of the season.

Hibs scored three times in 11 first-half minutes as Martin Boyle, Kyle Magennis, and Christian Doidge replicated their goalscoring feats from last weekend’s win at Motherwell.

It could have been more as the hosts continued to push for more goals, with Doidge unlucky to add to his tally and Jamie Murphy and Darren McGregor both going close.
