Hibs are in Dingwall this weekend for the last game in a gruelling run of four away games, where they will hope to bounce back from a drab 1-0 defeat by St Johnstone and give themselves a lift going into the Edinburgh derby just before the new year.

Three points in the Highlands would give Hibs a fifth win in seven matches and haul them back into the race for third place before the winter break and the January transfer window.  

Despite the disappointment at McDiarmid Park there was plenty to discuss. Hibs Observer editor Patrick McPartlin sat down with writer Liam Bryce to review Saturday's game in Perth, and look ahead to another away day in Dingwall this weekend.

Did the Jimmy Jeggo x Dylan Levitt combination work in midfield? Just how much did Hibs miss the presence of Joe Newell in the engine room? Could Rocky Bushiri come back into the starting line-up against the Staggies? And what happens when none of Hibs' attackers are at the races?

Plus: what sort of effect will Derek Adams' comments about Scottish football have on Saturday's encounter? How must the Ross County players be feeling? And just how important is it that Hibs combine an improved performance with the right result this weekend?
