Hibs 24h On

Last updated : 25 September 2005 By Firparkcorner

The catalogue of the wounded bears repeating. Leitch, McBride, Fitzpatrick, Quinn, Paterson, Marshall, Corrigan, McCormack and Hamilton were posted missing at the weekend and most of them would have been on the park at some time had they been available.

Kick off v Hibs

We know all too well that our young squad will step forward and give of their best. The fans get a kick from seeing teenagers like Darren Smith thrown into the front line but we know that there needs to be a mature spine to the team. Last season we had
Marshall, Partridge, Leitch/O’Donnell and Hamilton giving a solid base of experience though the middle and the less experienced players were provided with support.

Of the team which started on Saturday only Uncle Phil could be considered ‘mature’. We need a few of the ‘auld heids’ back as soon as possible.

Still, with eight rounds of the campaign behind us we have three wins, one draw and ten points. We are in seventh place and in the quarter finals of the CIS Cup. Not bad for a team which has endured an injury crisis!
