Mackay was able to rest key men from the 65th minute onwards, so regulars such as Jordan Tillson and David Cancola look destined to remain among the replacements. Johnson finds himself in an almost identical position, the temptation being to name an unchanged Hibs starting lineup. However, it would not come as a surprise if Nisbet returned to the team to replace Elie Youan down the middle of the attack. Youan may be redeployed on the left flank in place of Aiden McGeady, depending on whether Johnson wishes to hand the 36-year-old a rest. Ross County possible starting lineup:Laidlaw; Watson, Baldwin, Iacovitti; Randall, Callachan, Kenneh, Harmon; Dhanda; Brophy, White Hibernian possible starting lineup:Marshall; Cadden, Fish, Hanlon, Stevenson; McKirdy, Newell, Jeggo, Campbell, McGeady; Nisbet We say: Ross County 1-2 Hibernian With both teams starting to show form that they have rarely produced in recent months, this is a difficult match to call. Nevertheless, we have to side with Hibs, who have shown what they are capable of in front of goal and are motivated to strengthen their hold of a top-six position.

On the back of losing to rivals Hearts in the Scottish Cup, Hibs took advantage of their opponent's dismal form to give their campaign another kick-start. Nevertheless, with the top two not to come in their next four outings, Hibs must continue this run of form if they want to make a bid to catch third-placed Hearts, who are in control of the Europa League qualification spot. From Ross County's perspective, it is all about trying to stay in the Scottish top flight after losing 13 of their 23 matches this campaign. On a positive note, however, they have earned five points from their most recent four games, ending a seven-match winless streak on Saturday by easing past relegation rivals Kilmarnock.
