Hibernian head coach Ross admitted that Alex Gogic’s teammates make him leave the training session watching his wayward finishing.

Hibernian

head coach

Jack Ross

revealed that he was shocked to see

Alex Gogic

’s pull off an impressive performance in the 2-0 Premiership victory over

Kilmarnock

on Saturday.

The 26-year-old has been running on a rich vein of form ever since meeting a Christian Doidge knock-down, which was his first time finding the target for his side.

They sealed the three points following Alan Power’s howler, finding his own net.

Ross laughed: “

I would like to say that I’ve seen him do that in training regularly, but I don’t. He quite often gets chased out of the finishing drills when he tries to get involved!

“It’s a heck of a finish, to be fair, and I thought it capped an excellent performance.

“I’m pleased for him and he’s deserved it for his performances so far this season.”

Ross’s side celebrated their first triumph since December 23, he added: “The way other results have gone, and where we find ourselves going into a break from league action, is positive for us.”

While Killie failed to resist the defeat, a more principal win arrived 24 hours prior following their request against Covid-related sanctions was confirmed by a Scottish FA panel.

Killie suffered a 3-0 loss when they were unable to fulfill a clash against

Motherwell

because of the virus, although they were asked for a £40,000 fine.

Assistant manager Andy Millen said: “

I was unfortunate to have it [Covid] myself – my whole family was down with it.

“People making these decisions are not using common sense. They’re not in the real world.

“If anyone thinks they can stay away from it… well, you can do your best, but there are no guarantees.

“You only need to see what’s happening in English football; there’s no hysteria. If the game is off, it’s off. There’s always another day for a game of football.

“So, I was always quietly confident sensible people doing sensible things would get to the right answer – and they did that.”
