John McGinn

Hibs midfielder John McGinn is looking forward to getting back to Easter Road tonight after a period of away fixtures.

Hibs face Livingston, hoping to get back to winning ways and a victory will reduce Falkirk’s advantage to three points, with Alan Stubbs’ men having two games in hand.

McGinn has been in superb form since his summer move to Hibs, and he has proved to be an excellent acquisition for the club. His performances have brought him to the attention of Gordon Strachan and it was no surprise to see him make his Scotland debut against Denmark at Hampden Park last month, a game in which he was voted ‘man of the match.’

The modest youngster however was quick to praise the contribution of his team mates for the call up.

Speaking to Hibs TV, he said: “I’m looking forward to getting back to Easter Road. It’s been a happy hunting ground for us this season and it’s important to get back to winning ways.

“We have big support who will have missed coming to Easter Road. It’s been difficult going to the away grounds. the first half of the season we did well but in the as few weeks we haven’t been getting the break of the ball.

“The Scotland cap was unbelievable, the best moment of my career so far. To run out for my country at Hampden was unexpected but amazing.

“I’m enjoying my football, I feel as if I’m getting better as the weeks go on. I’m making less mistakes and taking the flaws out of my game and I’m playing alongside good players and good coaches.

“The boys were all great and there was a bit of banter flying about, but it was a personal accolade, but it was one for the team as well – I wouldn’t have got into the Scotland team if it wasn’t for the boys.”
