Alexander said

: “Everything we worked for this week from last Saturday, the players have done absolutely everything that was required of them as professionals.

“The last two games have shown the spirit, the togetherness and the quality we have within the club.

“It’s all underpinned by their work ethic and togetherness. That was a brilliant performance and brilliant result.

“Jordan got a fantastic goal for us and competed but the front three were such a handful for Hibs.

“The midfield three were like dogs of war behind them, getting all the scraps and doing all the dirty stuff.

“The back four and goalkeeper were magnificent. Hibs are a brilliant team but we deserved the three points.”
