Hibs were humbled by Rangers at Ibrox, losing 6-1 to their Glasgow rivals. Paul Heckingbottom has to revert back to his attacking partnership of Scott Allan and Florian Kamberi for Hibs’ League Cup clash with Morton.
It was a terrible day for the Hibees, who were just as bad going forward as they were defensively. The only shining lights going forward were Scott Allan and Daryl Horgan.
Christian Doidge was picked ahead of Florian Kamberi for the tie. The Swiss talisman should start over his Welsh teammate this weekend.
Allan and Kamberi carry Hibs’ attacking threat
In his first few games Doidge has looked pretty hopeless. It looks as though he’ll take a little bit of time to get used to the standard of Scottish football.
There isn’t as much of a connection with the influential Allan. The two just don’t seem to click, which is the polar opposite of what Allan and Kamberi can do when starting together.
The pair seem to know each other well. They know what they’re good at and what they can help the other achieve. Many Hibs fans are excited to see how fruitful their relationship can become over the course of a season.
Allan’s already created assists for Kamberi this term. There just isn’t that same spark between him and Doidge.
Heckingbottom has to make sure that Allan and Kamberi start together for Hibs against Morton. Against the Championship outfit, they should have no problem expressing their attacking flair.
Both players are good for each other. Heckingbottom has to make sure they do well together for Hibs too, starting by getting the two of them in the starting XI together once more.
