Hibs’ Head Coach Neil Lennon is pleased with his players’ level of consistency this season.

Hibs travel to Paisley this afternoon in third place after last weekend’s comprehensive victory over Dundee and he is hoping for more of the same.

Despite losing on penalties to Aberdeen in midweek, Lennon insisted that he could not criticise the team’s overall performance and he is hoping to secure another three points today.

Speaking at the pre-match press conference ahead of today’s clash with St Mirren, Lennon said: “It’s still very early, but after six games I’m very pleased with the level of performances and consistency of performances.

“The players are in good condition now, and we are starting to hit top form.

“I’m hoping we can carry that on. Every game is different. St Mirren have their own objectives. They are trying to impress a new manager. They had an adverse result last week so they will be hoping to bounce back. there are no easy games.

“Compared to where we were this time last year I think we are in a better place now.”

Lennon also revealed that Australian international striker Jamie MacLaren will miss the next few games due to a back injury.

He continued: “We could have done with Jamie (MacLaren) the other night. the game was taylor-made for him. With some of the chances we created you would expect him to be n the end of quite a few.

“We are hoping that it’s not going to be too long term. It needs rest and the back needs to strengthen on certain areas of his core so we may not see him this side of the international break but may see him after that.”
