Jack Ross has expressed his delight with his Hibs squad after a 3-1 win over Motherwell in his opening match as boss.

It got off to a bad start for him after Liam Polworth put the visitors ahead. Goals from Christian Doidge, Florian Kamberi and Daryl Horgan fired Hibs to victory in the end.

Hibs are now in the top six following this result and could be just four points off the Well in fourth with victory over St Mirren on Tuesday night.

“I’m delighted with the result and large parts of the performance,” said Ross following the game. “When you come in during the season it does help getting off to a good start.

“I’m really pleased for the players. I’m still trying to get a feel for the players but the little bits of information that we put across to the players were took on very well.

“It was hard work for them and being brave enough to play the way we did in the forward areas. The pleasing thing for me is they did the things we wanted them to and their willingness to do so was really pleasing.”
