Hibs Now Top 6

This midweek we play County and they've got the huns. The gap could easily reduce to 6 points (or increase to 12 admittedly).

Maybe it is optimistic, but I also think it's the target the players should have.
The gap could indeed close to 6 points but in the 3rd round of fixtures Hearts will have played Livi away and Rangers at home whereas we will still have those tough games to play.
One things for sure we need to win tonight given our tough fixture on Saturday.
Saturday's match and result were a complete one off.
Hibs played well, but I have not only never seen a worse Aberdeen performance, it's one of the worst efforts I have seen from any opposition team at Easter Road for many years. None of their players had any appetite for the game from the start.
We will have a much better perspective on things for Hibs after tomorrow nights game at Ross County and next weekend's match at St Mirren who have been excellent at home all season.
We have had IMO a poor season so far, punctuated with the very occasional good showing at Easter Road (Aberdeen both times, Livingston, St Mirren and good comebacks against Hearts and Rangers). That's why we are where we are in the league and very unlikely to get anywhere near Hearts for the second season running which for me is unacceptable.
Let's see how things go at what will be a very windy Dingwall on Tuesday night.
Agreed re Aberdeen. The 3 headed goals they conceded were from wretched defending.
We need to and should beat Ross County but the wind could be a bit of a leveller. Hopefully Nisbet does his thing.

As you say St Mirren will be a tough game. I watched them play Hearts in back to back games recently and they were worth a draw in each. They are very direct and disrupted the Hearts backline with Ayunga and Main (who Robinson is somehow getting a tune out of). They also have quality in midfield in Baccus, Strain and Erhahon. I would take a draw although again Nisbets finishing gives us a chance to win.

This season has been a tale of injuries for Hibs. All of our best outfield players will have played less than half a season and Boyle far less. That list includes Nisbet, Boyle, McGeady, Magennis, Kukharevych, Bushiri with Miller and JDH also missing a substantial part of the season and Doig and Porteous have moving on. If even just Nisbet had been available all season we would have won far more games.
Since he returned we have won against the teams in 4th and 5th, beaten Motherwell and drawn with Dundee Utd.
In that time we have only lost to the top 3 teams so fair to say we are currently the 4th best team in the league and a win tonight would move us into that position with 14 games to play.
I see Erhahon is having a medical at Lincoln and the young guy Reid is away to Crystal Palace.
That will weaken St Mirren for Saturday although they are likely to bring some players in.
Surprised Hibs weren't interested in Erhahon.
