The spotlight was on the Irishman earlier in the season following a 9-0 aggregate defeat to Malmo in the Europa League qualifiers and successive league defeats to Motherwell and Edinburgh rivals Hearts respectively.
The Leith side recovered and have gone four games without a defeat while, in the meantime, pressure is mounting on the Buddies boss whose side have taken one point from five league games.
However, the Hibs saidt: "It is unfair on him.
"It is too early in the season to be judging people.
"It is difficult at the start of the season, particularly when there has been a lot of chopping and changing.
"Whether it be me or Danny, it is very difficult.
"You have to have a little bit of narrow mindedness when you get in to those situations, block things out and concentrate on doing what you think is right to turn it around, rather than worrying what people outside think.
"I think most managers around the world will have been through it, when the results are not going your way and you get plenty of flak, it is how you get through it.
"I think the key to it is to believe in what you are doing, you have got to stick with that and eventually it will turn around.
"If you keep chopping and changing every time someone has a bad run of results, that is where longer term problems can arise at a club.
"What I get with Danny after games is an honest assessment of the match so I think that shows the type of character he is, he is honest and hard working.
"So we know it is going to be difficult. They are fighting and they will be very difficult to beat."
