Hibs occupy sixth in the Premiership following a turbulent 2019/20 that saw Paul Heckingbottom replaced in November by Jack Ross.

The Englishman was sacked after ninth months and left the club 10th in the league, taking nine points from a possible 33.

In came Ross, who has done good work since his arrival to get the club back on track, with the club sitting in a healthier position in mid-table.

The goal as the split got closer was to finish in the top half, but with football suspended due to the Covid-19 outbreak, it is unclear whether there will be a chance for them to see the mission through.

With football having taken a backseat for now, here are three of the Hibees’ best results from 2019/20:

4-1 win vs St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park (09/11/19)

It was the Christian Doidge show at McDiarmid Park back in November, as manager-less Hibs strolled to a 4-1 victory in Perth.

It was only their second win of the season in the Premiership and Welshman Doidge’s third, fourth and fifth goals for the club following his summer move from Forest Green Rovers.

It really was a great result for the unshackled Hibees under caretaker boss Eddie May, and seemed to be the catalyst for an upturn in results.

3-1 win vs Motherwell at Easter Road (23/11/19)

Another top Hibs performance came against an impressive Motherwell at Easter Road in November.

It was a debut Premiership win for new man at the helm Ross, with Doidge, Florian Kamberi and Daryl Horgan cancelling out Liam Polworth’s opener.

Hibs were free-flowing up top, and the partnership between Doidge and Kamberi looked particularly exciting – and it would be a pairing Ross would use a few more times.

Overall, a strong day at the office.

3-0 win vs Aberdeen at Easter Road (07/12/19)

The 3-0 win over Aberdeen was Ross’ third win in five games and arguably, this was the best Hibs have looked this season.

The Hibees had to overcome a slight psychological barrier in that they had accrued just one point from six previous matches against the Dons, but it was an emphatic display from the hosts, who caused their opponents to drop from third to fourth in the table.

The result was even more impressive given Hibs had beaten Aberdeen just once in the last 16 Premiership games.

It was an effervescent and confident display, especially in the second half, and is definitely one for the players to think back to for optimism.
