Ross County came from two goals behind to earn a 2-2 draw against Hibs at Easter Road in the cinch Premiership tonight.

Elie Youan and Jair Tavares put the Hibees two ahead before an own goal from Allan Delferriere and a late equaliser from substitute Jordan White won a well-deserved point for the Staggies.

County completed a comeback of their own tonight after conceding two late goals on Saturday to surrender a 3-1 lead against Motherwell.

Nick Montgomery’s side are now winless in five matches and remain 8th in league table.

Despite rescuing a point from 2-0 down, Malky Mackay was ‘disappointed’ that his side didn’t win the match. He said:

“You think at 2-0 ‘this could get away from us here’ when we’ve been playing so well.

“But I thought we were brave and I thought they continued to play, continued to find openings and we eventually get the goals.

“”I’m disappointed because we had another couple of great chances near the end to actually go and win it.”

Hibs boss Nick Montgomery understands that his side were far from their best tonight. He added:

“The boys are disappointed tonight, I’m frustrated, they’re frustrated.

“There’s a bit of frustration from the fans tonight because you’re winning the game 2-0 at home, not playing particularly well, but if you get three points then yeah you move forward.

“That was a disappointing thing, it feels like we’ve thrown two points away but it is what it is, we have to move on from that now and get ready for a big game on Saturday.”
