Hibs are entering the final stages of a busy run of games- but Rangers loanee Greg Docherty insists he wants the games to keep coming thick and fast.
Since returning from the winter break on January 19th, Jack Ross’ side have already played eight games, with today’s match against Kilmarnock their ninth. The likes of Docherty’s arrival from Rangers has helped ease the workload slightly.
The midfielder has made quite the impact since arriving from Govan. He has turned in three strong performances and picked up a Man of the Match award for his role in the 3-0 win over Ross County during the week.
It’s relief for him after sitting out in the Rangers cold for much of the first half of 2019/20. Speaking after the 3-0 Staggies win, Docherty says he’s loving being back in the football fold at Hibs.
“I’m really enjoying playing football,” said Docherty. “I feel I am getting my fitness and sharpness back which is great. This winning feeling, it’s underestimated at times.
“It’s what you strive to get back in the team for. There is a lot of quality in the frontline, it’s great for me. I look up and I have so many runs, so I just need to find them and they’ll deliver.
“The more games the better for me just now. There’s no midweek games coming up for a while which is a bit disappointing. The other boys in the dressing room are quite happy but I’m a bit gutted!
“It’s a busy period but I actually think it helps to be thrown in at the deep end. There’s no better place to learn than on the pitch. I have a lot to improve on and I think it’s a good platform for me.”
