Martin Boyle had put the Easter Road side ahead early in the second half and added a second 16 minutes later, before Flo Kamberi sealed the game with a superb solo strike with just over a quarter of an hour to play.

And at the end of a week in which he’s seen his side take just one point from matches against Kilmarnock - despite being two goals up - and Ross County, he declared himself “delighted” with his players’ display.

Ross said: “I have been really pleased with the performance level since I came in, even the games against Kilmarnock and Ross County. We were frustrated to take only one point because I thought we played well across the majority of those two games.

“We continued that today against a team that’s difficult to beat so to win the game and in the manner we did is really pleasing.”

Ross insisted Hibs had got the reward for being a “front foot team,” his problem being to find the proper balance which, he admitted, he didn’t feel they had in Dingwall in midweek as they lost 2-1 despite having lead through a Christian Doidge goal.

He said: “We had to tweak that a bit and I thought we were better. It gave us a platform for our forward going players to win the game.

“Being level at half-time wasn’t a bad position to be in and then we tried to kick on in the second half. I maybe didn’t appreciate how good our goals were but I got to watch them again and they were really good.”
