League Cup finalists Hibernian came crashing back down to earth with a fifth straight Scottish Premiership defeat at bottom club Ross County.

After a goalless first half, substitute Blair Spittal’s 72nd-minute cross evaded everyone in the area before nestling in Matt Macey’s far corner to earn a first home league win since May.

The visitors, who had Christian Doidge sent off with six minutes remaining and Martin Boyle dismissed after the final whistle, looked laboured after Sunday’s Hampden win over Rangers.

The five-game losing streak is Hibs’ worst top-flight run since 2013-14 and leaves them seventh, although Jack Ross’ men have two games in hand on the four teams placed above them to try rectify their form.

County – who had three glaring chances to make the win more comfortable – move to within a point of Dundee in 11th place and four behind Livingston in 10th.

More to follow.
