Boyle at the double for Hibs to pick up three points against Aberdeen

Hibs made easy work seeing off Aberdeen to give new head coach, Jack Ross, his third win in five league games since joining the club last month.

The visitors looked the brighter of the sides in the first but Hibs came out in the second half flying on all cylinders.

Scott Allan went on a terrific run through the Aberdeen midfield before his perfectly weighted pass found Martin Boyle who slotted the ball into the net.

Hibs confidence grew and Boyle netted his second of there afternoon when he broke away from the defender and slipped the ball under the advancing keeper and into the net.

Flo Kamberi sealed the victory minutes later when he got past three red shirts on the right and fired home.

After the game Hibernian manager Jack Ross: “The calibre of our goals were really good.

“Working on getting the balance right is the key aspect for us, and we’re getting there.

“I hope they’ll take belief from today. We’re setting the standard in training and we’re setting them in games now.”

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes: “I’m maybe guilty of making too many changes looking back now.

“I thought the 3-4-1-2 we went to allowed us more possession of the ball and we got into good areas, but we didn’t do enough with the ball and I’ve gambled too early with the shape because it left us more open on the counter-attack.”
