A Billy McKay brace and Richie Foran's effort ensured a comfortable three points at Caledonian Stadium, which saw Caley reclaim top spot after Celtic's earlier success at Kilmarnock.

"I said to the players before the game that because it's been the same side for seven games running that Hibs will know how you play," Butcher said.

"I told them to play differently, and better, than the past few games and they did that today, I thought they were excellent.

"I thought we did really well out there today and I enjoyed watching the performance. It was great to be back out playing at home.

"When I first came here it maybe wasn't the best place to play but we enjoy it. We moved the ball around well and our passing was great. Normal service has been resumed after last week."

Hibs counterpart Pat Fenlon added: "We've lost today for the first time in six games and to be fair we didn't deserve anything from the game.

"They had more chances than us and took them and we gave away a sloppy first goal. In the second half they were the better side.

"The first goal was a poor mistake. It's hard enough coming here without gifting goals away to the opposition. It makes it more difficult.

"During the first half, I didn't think there was much in the game but in the second half we just didn't turn up.

"We were trying to get subs on before the second and third goals but in the end it just wasn't to be."
