The Easter Road side look set for a top six finish following their 2-0 win over Motherwell. Omeonga, who has been excellent for the Hibees in recent weeks, has paid his respects to the football Heckingbottom’s team has been playing.

“We are really enjoying it. It’s a pleasure to play because we are trying to play attacking football, that’s what Hibs fans and the manager want” he told the Edinburgh Evening News.

Hibs’ main goal between now and the end of the season will be catching bitter rivals Hearts in the league table.

Heckingbottom will be confident of Hibernian overtaking their city rivals in the weeks to come. Should that be the case, that will mark a successful start to Heckingbottom’s career at Easter Road.

Before that though, the Hibs boss will be hoping that none of his players get injured on international duty. Marc McNulty has been a key man for Hibs. It will be intriguing to see if he gets the nod to make his Scotland debut.
