  Jack Ross glad to have more options ahead of Stoke City friendly as first-teamers join up with squad Hibs head coach Jack Ross is relieved to have added some more bodies to the squad training in Cheshire ahead of Friday’s friendly against Stoke City.“It’s nice to see them first and foremost, because we’ve not seen them for a while now,” Ross said, when asked about last season’s Young Player of the Year and the affable Swede linking up again with their team-mates for the first time during the pre-season programme.

Most Americans seem to believe that, while Joe Biden is sitting at the Resolute Desk, he’s not actually doing the job – and it’s not inconceivable to suggest whoever’s calling the shots has their own Oval Office ambitions. Medicare for All is vocally supported by half the House Democratic Caucus and hundreds of unions, professional organizations, and other workers’ coalitions. The most recent version was introduced to the House by Rep. Pramila Jayapal in March and should, in theory, have no trouble sailing through a Democrat-controlled House.

Two goals from Martin Boyle and a third from Kevin Nisbet leaves them in a solid position ahead of next week’s second leg, but they had to show mental strength to regain their equilibrium in the second half after the controversial sending off of Newell after half an hour.

"It was eventful,” said manager Jack Ross. “The first 20 minutes it goes to plan, scoring, the way the game was panning out, then of course the officiating is questionable, not just in that period but through the course of the game.

'The two fights I lost, the guys took major damage. 'Anthony Joshua almost got knocked out when I fought him. If you watch the clips back you hear him saying, 'If I took one more body shot from him, I would have folded in half '. Joe Joyce. 'I will happily take on whoever wins, but I would love the opportunity to fight Joshua. 'I think he will want to fight Fury so we will have to see what happens there, but I am on the WBO track and looking to be made mandatory. 'I think Usyk could be a tricky fight for Joshua, but he should knock him out sooner or later you would think.

“I think when we went a man down we were spooked by and didn't respond particularly well in that period but when getting at half time unscathed was important.

“I haven’t seen [Joe’s challenge] but my staff have and they’re all in agreement it wasn’t a red card. I think there were even people doubting whether it was a yellow. I think it went hand in hand with how the game had started from an officiating point of view. There were a heck of a lot of cautions throughout the game.

“Changing the system at half time, and with the affirmation that the players were still being good players and that doesn’t change when you go down to 10 men, that helped and I think in the second half the game changes again with the other sendings off, but before that we looked a better side again and the players deserved credit for that, for responding as we had that period when we lost that little bit of composure but regained it well."

Why Jack Ross extending Hibs stay is a good move for all parties

  Why Jack Ross extending Hibs stay is a good move for all parties Continuity is key when trying to build regular success at a football club.For many fans, Hibs’ failure to win a trophy last season despite two good opportunities is borderline unforgivable; a first third-place finish in 16 years paling into insignificance.

New gold medals will come from boxer Lauren Price, shooters Amber Hill and Seonaid McIntosh, equestrian's Laura Collett and Ben Maher, Anna Burnett and John Gimson in sailing and two relays – the men's 4x100m in athletics and swimming's men's 4x100m. They first used it for London 2012 and predicted Team GB would win 67 medals — just two off their actual haul of 65. At Rio 2016, they underestimated Britain's success, tipping only 51 medals when they went on to win 67.

Hibs are now unbeaten in five and a point clear of Aberdeen having played a game more. And the Easter Road side also have Celtic firmly in their sights, with the champions just a point ahead but having three matches in hand. Fifth-place Motherwell, despite being awarded two 3-0 victories on Thursday for Mugabi did have the ball in the net shortly before half -time, but O'Hara was harshly adjudged to have fouled Lewis Stevenson in climbing to head the ball down for the defender to bundle home. Watt blazed over early in the second period before Hibs took command with a much-improved performance.

The Andorran underdogs had two men sent off themselves later in the match but that did not dilute the sense of injustice in the Hibs ranks and in the stands over Newell’s punishment, which is why the club could appeal, according to Ross.

“I’m not sure how the process works but if it is in line with our domestic [system] and we feel it’s unjust, we will.”
