Despite having drawn their last three league games, Hibs’ striker Grant Holt insists that he and his team mates are all confident going into the game against bottom of the table St Mirren in Paisley tonight.
He does concede however that it will be a tough game against a side battling against relegation and he stated that all the players will need to be on their game to pick up three points on the road.
The former Norwich City striker has been in good form recently and he has started coaching the development team to pass on his experience but tonight he will be focussed on taking all three points.
Speaking to Hibernian TV, Holt said: “We’re confident going into the game. Our last game against Dunfermline was against a side who have had ten days off, and we’ve played three games in the space of around ten days.
“The lads were a bit off their feet second half but we got the job done. We keep running because we want to achieve something and without working hard we will never achieve that. Our main aim is to get promoted.
“We went into the Dunfermline game with confidence, so going to St Mirren will be the same. They’ll be at it, they need the points as much as we do so we have got to go there and be on our game.
“Their players know that every game is massive. They don’t want to be relegated and we have to use that to our advantage. It’s the one time we go to a ground and the pressure is on them. They need a win probably more than we do.
“We went there at the start of the season and got a good 3-0 win but tomorrow we have to get out of the traps early and get amongst the goals. We have a squad that can score a goal at any time.
“At the moment our squad is thin and there is no getting past that. We have knocks and niggles with players putting their bodies on the line.
“If we do what we do then we will win the league and that’s a fact. We have the points and the cushion and we know how many games are left. We know we have a tough run of games coming up but we can only worry about that we do and not what others do.”
