Hibernian enjoyed a double celebration as manager Alan Stubbs and Jason Cummings won monthly awards.
Stubbs was named the Championship manager of the month for October, while Cummings won player of the month after an impressive run of victories.
Hibs won all four Championship games against Queen of the South, Dumbarton, Falkirk and Raith Rovers to keep the pace with Rangers at the top of the league.
A victory over the Ibrox men in November has cut the gap to five points to reignite their title challenge.
And the emphatic victory over Dundee United in the League Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday stretched their run to 11 wins in 12 games.
Cummings himself has been in scintillating form, netting in each of his last six games to take his tally to 12 goals this season.
