GK – DAVID MARSHALL 6/10

Clearly felt hard done by after the VAR penalty award and re-take decisions. Not helped by the defending in front of him.

Slow to react for the third Aberdeen goal and hesitant with his recovery run in the lead up to the fourth. But good going forward.

RCD – RYAN PORTEOUS 6

Booed loudly by the Aberdeen fans every time he touched the ball. Not that it bothered him. Didn’t cover himself in glory for the fourth goal.

CD – ROCKY BUSHIRI 8

Picked up where he left off last week against St Mirren. Needed treatment numerous times in what was a combative and composed performance.

LCD – PAUL HANLON 6

Steady enough from the skipper, especially in the first half. Occasionally troubled by the pace of Aberdeen’s counter-attack.

LWB – MARIJAN CABRAJA 7

Showed speed and awareness to get back and clear Duk’s effort off the line late in the first half. Low cross created the Kukharevych goal.

RCM – KYLE MAGENNIS 7

Impressive return to the starting line-up after suspension. Helped Hibs dominate possession in the first half before tiring and being replaced.

CDM – NOHAN KENNEH 6

Hibs enjoyed 62% possession, with the teenage midfielder playing his part in the holding role and allowing those in front to get on the ball.

LCM – JOE NEWELL 7

Didn’t get close enough to Miovski for the Aberdeen striker’s headed goal from a corner. But very good on the ball and came close to scoring.

AMC – EWAN HENDERSON 6

Played in a more advanced role, just off the striker. Came close with a header in the first half and tried an audacious lob in he second.

ST – MYKOLO KUKHAREVYCH 7

Three goals in three games for he big Ukranian striker, who is gets into good areas and is proving to be a real handful for opposition defenders.
