I BET what I know and I know Hibernian.
Hibernian are playing tonight so I have taken time to look at other sites and the main talking points are the 2-1 win for Ayr away and the 1-1 draw at Home which is understandable but fail to mention the Hibernian wins 3-0 3-1 & 4-0.
When Hibernian lost 2-1 we were 1-0 up early in the second half when Marvin Bartley was sent off, the red card was a joke and was later rescinded, we were playing well before the sending ff but it lifted them. A big difference between last season and this season is the fitness of the squad, Neil Lennon and his coaching staff have worked hard with the players to improve this and it’s very noticeable in games now that we are a lot fitter.
What also is noticeable is our approach to games, our approach seems less nervous, last season we were desperate to make things happen but now we are more composed. When we get to the last third of the pitch instead of forcing things and seeing an attack break down we are now more composed, waiting for the right opportunity if nothing is on straight away.
There will be changes tonight but as Lennon says there won’t be many changes, one that looks certain is SLIVKA starting, he could replace Bartley and LAIDLAW could play in goal in place of Marciano. As for Stokes, he isn’t match fit so I can see him coming on and playing longer but I don’t see him starting, I wouldn’t change anything upfront but Lennon could start the other LEITHuanian DEIVYDAS MATULEVICIUS. While nothing is certain we should still be winning tonight with a bit to spare
