Connor Randall was sent off in the 79th minute, but Hibs could not find a way via inspite of producing the superior possibilities.
The Staggies manufactured 6 improvements, together with handing a debut to on-mortgage Celtic goalkeeper Ross Doohan, although Hibernian rang the adjustments soon after their Betfred Cup victory at Forfar last Tuesday, swapping out 9 of their starting up line-up.
Hibs ended up inches absent from opening the scoring with just 5 minutes on the clock when Kyle Magennis hit a publish.
Martin Boyle then received in at the rear of the defence – as he on a regular basis would all through the afternoon – to come across himself a single-on-a single with Doohan, only to drag his shot large of the mark.
It was a dominant spell for the people, who then observed Kevin Nisbet denied by a aim-line clearance by Alex Iacovitti.
County began to increase into the recreation from there as proceedings settled down, but despite the fact that there ended up some nice passing exchanges, obvious-minimize likelihood remained handful of and far amongst.
Michael Gardyne seemed to be the most very likely to locate the web, very first taking pictures huge and then electing to tee-up Charlie Lakin when it seemed like he had time and area to pick his spot.
With most of the shots on aim becoming off focus on, it took right until the 67th minute before either goalkeeper was seriously analyzed when Doohan denied the two Christian Doidge and Nisbet.
Doohan was forced into action once again shortly later on from Stevie Mallan’s shot on target, but likely into the latter phases of the match it was anyone’s recreation to acquire.
The Staggies were being decreased to 10 gentlemen in the 79th moment, although, when Randall was proven a purple card.
Hibs were attempting to counter-attack and introduced the ball in excess of the best for Boyle to operate onto, but Randall misjudged the flight of the ball and instead took the Hibs participant down.
Referee Nick Walsh considered him to be the last man, and with Randall obtaining produced no try to participate in the ball, he was still left with no option but to mail the right-again off.
Ross County then by natural means went defensive to attempt and see out the place, and with no way too substantially time to make the most of their man advantage they returned down the A9 with only a issue to exhibit for their attempts.
