James McPake tells Hibernian TV the key factor behind the team's encouraging start to the SPL season has been a never-say-die attitude shown by the players.
Captain McPake played his part in helping Hibernian record a solid point at champions Celtic - preserving the team's unbeaten run to four SPL games and lifting the club into joint second spot in the standings.
The current situation is a far cry from the relegation dogfight of last season and the popular centre-half believes that is down to a stronger collective mindset.
McPake said: "We did show bottle at Celtic and, take away the Queen of the South game, in the games before we've been showing that.
"Hopefully the fans are starting to see that there is a difference in mentality about this place. We're still working on it, and we've still got a long way to go, but we're showing signs of progress.
"We're not coming to places and giving up and rolling over to teams whereas maybe before we would have."
McPake says the accolades and plaudits that followed the result at Parkhead were pleasant, but stresses the squad will not rest on their laurels and will target a victory against Kilmarnock at Easter Road (Saturday 15 September, kick off 3pm).
He added: "At the end of the day, it's only a point, but we'll enjoy coming here and getting all the accolades and whatever people say.
"People will maybe praise our performance and say we did well and showed a bit of fight, but at the end of the day it's a point at Parkhead.
"We've got to move on and move on quickly. We've got a break then the league starts up again and we've got to start winning again."
When the team regroup for the next SPL fixture, McPake admits he is looking forward to linking up with his Northern Ireland team-mate, Ryan McGivern, who signed on loan on deadline day.
He said: "He's an experienced player for a start, he's probably played close to 100 games in the Championship.
"He's played for big clubs and he is at a big club, one of the biggest clubs in the world with his parent club Manchester City.
"He is a good footballer, a good boy with the right attitude and that is why the manager has brought him in so I'm looking forward to him joining."
