Still sitting four points adrift of leaders Rangers, Ange Postecoglou will not feel satisfied with the performances and results of his Celtic side.
Nevertheless, four successive wins in all competitions is a step in the right direction, the last three victories being accompanied by clean sheets.
While the goals have dried up to a certain degree, becoming difficult to break down at the other end was more important in the wake of their 4-0 drubbing at home to Bayer Leverkusen.
Postecoglou and the club’s supporters will both agree that this side is very much a work in progress as all of the relevant parties continue to go through a period of transition.
That said, with forward Giorgos Giakoumakis now an active member of his squad, expectations have increased ahead of their next batch of fixtures.
A similar scenario occurred at Hibs up until a few weeks ago after the Edinburgh outfit came through their opening seven league matches without suffering defeat.
However, three setbacks in succession against Rangers, Dundee United and Aberdeen have put a different spin on things, Ross now coming under pressure to keep his job.
Calls for his departure at this stage should be perceived as an over-reaction, but defeat on Wednesday could leave Hibs in the bottom half of the table.
Barring any late fitness issues, Postecoglou could stick with the same players which posted a 2-0 win over St Johnstone.
That would see Giakoumakis make his second start in succession, while the likes of Stephen Welsh and Adam Montgomery would remain among the replacements.
