Preview: Hibs (h)
Updated Thursday, 18th October 2007
We have taken one point from our last nine in the league - are we in crisis? It would be harsh to say so but for all our pretty football we have to get back to putting points on the board. Doing so against Hibs will not be easy.
The side from
A sight we'd rather not see!
Their midfield will be significantly weakened by the absence of Beuzelin with Stevenson or Zemmama filling in for him. Fletcher missed the Scotland U21 game in mid-week but should be fit.
On our side we have a full squad available to the manager. McCormack missed out on the U21 thrashing in
We seemed to hit a purple patch when we hammered them at Easter Road so while we know we are capable of beating them, they will not be taking this game for granted.
Our defence isn't bad, in the comedy style of years gone by, but we do make stupid mistakes and our total inability to defend set pieces could hurt us once more. Hibs are unbeaten in the league for a reason but they are not invincible and we should feel confident of taking something at home. This could be an enthralling game with everyone leaving relatively pleased after a 2-2 draw.
Remember the last time Hibs were at Fir Park?
