Hibernian left-back Jordan Obita will take major confidence from their clean sheet against Celtic.

Hibs bounced back from their first defeat under Nick Montgomery, which came in a 4-0 loss at Ibrox, when they held the cinch Premiership leaders to a draw on Saturday.

They now host Ross County on Tuesday night knowing victory would move them into the top six.

Quoted on the club’s official website, Obita said: “We are all looking forward to Tuesday, we come into this off a good result against Celtic.

“We are all really positive after that draw and the clean sheet. We were very compact on Saturday, we were solid and defended from the front.

“We made it difficult for them and forced them to go around the outside which is a difficult thing to do against a team like Celtic.

“If we can do that against the best team in the league, then we can do it against anyone.

“We’re back at home on Tuesday, so we will have our fans behind us and we are all confident that we can take three points.

“We know Ross County are a very solid team, they tend to play man for man which can be hard to play against and create space at times.

“But we know what we have to do and we are all fully focused on making sure we pick up three points.”
