Hibernian 0-0 Ross County

Hibernian continued to frustrate their fans at home as they fought out an uninspiring draw with Ross County.

Both sides struck a post in the first-half, Mihael Kovacevic for County then James Collins for the home side.

Rocco Quinn and Graham Carey both missed good chances for the visitors, who had to settle for their second Premiership game without defeat.

Hibs too have stretched their unbeaten run - to three games - but that's four at home this season without a win.

As the boos again greeted the home side, County trooped off Easter Road having retained their record of never losing to the Leith side - they have only ever met six times.

Hibs' two Friday signings failed to make the starting line-up, with former Kilmarnock striker Paul Heffernan on the bench and on-loan Istres winger Abdellah Zoubir not involved despite receiving international clearance.

It was little surprise that Hibs manager Pat Fenlon stuck by the side that won at Kilmarnock last weekend, but it was a bit of a shock that his opposite number also decided against some alterations.

However, the same XI who suffered a shock midweek defeat by third-tier outfit Stranraer in the League Cup twice came close to making quick amends at Easter Road.

Danny Handling headed just over for Hibs after two minutes, but thereafter County were the better side.

Kovacevic pounced after goalkeeper Ben Williams parried clear Kevin Luckassen's shot, but the big defender's drive struck the post.

Quinn ought to have put County ahead, but the midfielder fired wide from all of four yards.

Hibs were looking nervous at the back but edged their way into the game and were themselves denied by the woodwork shortly before the break.

Collins' header from 10 yards struck the base of the post following a Ryan McGivern cross as the former Swindon Town striker looked to open his account for his new club.

Liam Craig forced a fine save from County goalkeeper Mark Brown from long range, while Handling and Collins both squandered chances by firing well over the crossbar.

It was County's turn to miss the target when Carey forced himself past a couple of Hibs challenges but toe-poked the ball wide from six yards.
