Kevin Urquhart: "We are looking goooood."

Mike Elliott: "Brilliant game by the hibees GGTTHS"

There was also a lot of love for the display on fans forum hibs.net ...

Mango Man: "It really was night and day compared to the last game against them, we controlled it really from start to finish, great team performance."

HFC_NYC: "It was excellent. That's exactly what football is all about. Solid defending and flowing football. You really can't ask for more. The only downside I can see would be that McNulty and Omeonga are unlikely to be here next season. Also, special mention to Marvin Bartley....absolutely solid."

Ozhibby: "Great performance all round. Milligan and Hanlon excellent at the back, omeonga busy in midfield and McNulty class up front. Stand out for me was Mallan though. Best performance for a while."

There was some strong praise for Paul Heckingbottom too ...

howdenthehibby: "PH sure knows how to set up a team , his philosophy is now starting to catch on.Can't wait to see what he can do with some of his own signings added to this squad."

HFCEighteen75: "I’m feeling very optimistic about things right now and whatever happens next he’s earned the right to build his own squad this summer and give the league a real crack next season."

Mcpakeisgod: "Always a wee lift when someone new comes in , but for some reason this chap is filling me with confidence . There’s no doubt Lennon had to go so looking forward to this new chapter!"

Sean1875: "Night and day to how things were when Lennon left, very very encouraging start and that’s with a team that is still depleted with injuries too!"
