The midfielder was a potent threat in the match earlier this season and has consistently shown why he is such a vital part of the Hibernian squad. Being their second leading goal scorer on 4 goals from midfield shows just how much of a forward threat Allan is for the Easter Road side.
Has gone from being a striker that couldn’t score, to the striker that can’t stop scoring. Doidge is one of the most in-form strikers in the Premiership right now and will no doubt look to add to his figures on Wednesday night.
Former Staggie Naismith scored an excellent goal last weekend which highlighted exactly where the full backs strengths lie. A forward thinking and pacey full back Naismith will look to get forward and support the attack and the Staggies will be aware of the threats Naismith can cause.
Our last meeting…
Hibernian 2-2 Ross County
26th October 2019
With the Staggies trailing 2-0 in the second half it looked like away day misery for Kettlewell, Ferguson & the team before Brian Graham pulled one back for the Staggies and Joe Chalmers managed to grab a point with a last gasp long range equaliser. County will be looking to go one better on Wednesday night and make home advantage count against the Edinburgh side.
