@PeteDobosz: "Well played today at a ground we usually struggle on. Much better this week all round from the whole club by cutting ties with Heckingbottom, getting interviews out from those in charge, and putting on a performance today that renews optimism in some of the players"

@iannic70: "Very proud and so happy ,well done Hibernian and all the fantastic fans that travelled"

@HibsCentral: "Superb performance from the boys. Well done to Eddie, Grant & Whitts. Tactically spot on & set up brilliantly. Players actually knew their roles & it was evident. Special mention to Doidge who I thought was brilliant. Well deserved hattrick. Silenced critics, me included "

@GerFreedman: "Just about to get part knee replacement and go in to the op in good spirits with both Hibs and Leith winning today . Will be back on the bench for Xmas"

@Jax_Cochrane61: "I've always been so proud to be a Hibs supporter, but more so today as the players and coaches showed their worth to all the doubters. Courage, determination, skill, compassion and strong character are just a few words to describe how they performed today. Hold your heads high"

@Branflakes1875: "Start of something special hopefully"

@FraserRoss14: ""2 up front, and apparently we don't know anything!"

@CK1875: "What just happened?"

@time4heroes91: "What a result for Hibs. First away win of the season. Christian Doidge scored a hat-trick and Scott Allan scored his 4th goal of the season. A massive win for the caretaker manager Eddie May. The Hibees are back."

Fans also had their say on news Harry Kewell was in attendance:

@roo_richy: "I’d take Kewell over Ross"

@hodgie2: "Why, we don't want him as manager"

@StevieBroon78: "Nothing against the guy, but he’s not the man for the job"

@Gazarm1980: "Wasted trip I hope"
