All the talk in recent weeks amongst the Hibs’ fans has been the form of front three Flo Kamberi, Jamie MacLaren and Scott Allan who all arrived on-loan during the January transfer window, replacing Anthony Stokes and Simon Murray.
In midweek, Kamberi scored Hibs’ first league hat-trick in eight years, earning deserved plaudits whilst MacLaren earned international recognition and Allan won the SPFL ‘Goal of the Month’ competition for his superb strike against Hearts in the derby victory.
Yesterday however it was the turn of teenage striker Oli Shaw to grab the headlines with a late equaliser which keeps Hibs’ hopes of a second place finish on track with his fifth goal of the season after combing with Danny Swanson and Martin Boyle.
After the final whistle Shaw told Hibs TV: “As a striker it’s always good to come on and score. I thought the boys deserved something before I came on, we gave them a goal and had chances to score, scrappy balls into the box but it wasn’t quite falling for us.”
“It’s about being patient for myself – Flo and Jamie have been scoring goals so I’ve just had to be patient and wait for my chance, but getting a goal there obviously puts me in the right direction and hopefully in the manager’s thoughts.”
“They’re huge games – fans are looking forward to them, we’re looking forward to them.
“We’ll have the next two weeks to recover and get ourselves ready for five big games.”
