Not a bad home debut.

IRELAND’S DARYL HORGAN is off the mark at Hibernians with his first goal, and what a way to do it.

The 25-year-old hit a dramatic stoppage time winner to take the title of Hibs’ hero and seal a 3-2 victory and a Betfred Cup quarter-final date with Aberdeen.

His side came from behind twice before the Irish international fired home to beat Ross County at Easter Road.

Michael Gardyne got Ross County off to a bright start before Hibs captain David Gray levelled matters within five minutes off the back of a pinpoint assist from Horgan.

Josh Mullin scored County’s second from the spot before Stevie Mallan equalised proceedings once again.

And it was that man Horgan who curled a sensational effort at the death — his first for Hibs on his home debut.

Earlier this month, he signed for Neil Lennon’s side on a three-year deal from Preston.
