Hibs came from behind to end a five-game cinch Premiership losing streak and Stubbs insists it can be the catalyst that turns their season round after falling off the pace over the last month or so.
It’s something he thinks Ross needs to do in order for Hibs to go into next month’s cup final against Celtic in a better frame of mind.

“I think he’s done a decent job,” Stubbs told Sky Sports. “Before that win in the semi final, their league form was struggling a bit.
“They’d gone five league games without a win so I think the win against St Johnstone at the weekend was a huge turning point in the season for them.
“They’ll go into the game tomorrow certainly buoyed by the result in the semi-final, there’s no doubt about that.
“But right now their main focus is getting themselves further up the league because there’s no doubt that they are better than what their position is.
“Actions speak louder than words. Now they need to build a run of games and confidence to be ready for the clash in the final against Celtic in December.”
