Hibernian striker Jamie Gullan made his first-team breakthrough towards the end of last season. After impressing on loan at Raith Rovers, Gullan was a semi-regular in the Hibs team from January onwards. He managed to make seven appearances before the season was brought to an early halt.
The 21-year-old has featured regularly this season as well, making 12 appearances in all, and scoring two goals. However, he has yet to start a Premiership game this season. All of his starts have come in the Betfred Cup.
Gullan realises that this is a big season for him, as he attempts to build on his first-team breakthrough.
“It was good for me”
“Breaking through last year, and kind of getting a taste for it, in the first-team, it was good for me. I want to build on that this season, I’m getting chances here and there, I just want to make the most of them. I’ll keep trying to do that whenever I get time on the pitch.
Gullan feels that being in the first-team squad regularly has improved him as a player.
“It is a year that I’m learning a lot so far, improving as a player 100%, and just looking to try and impress whenever I get a chance to.”
Benefits from working with first-choice duo
The striker also feels that he benefits from working with first-choice forwards Kevin Nisbet and Christian Doidge, especially on the training ground.
“Even though I am behind Nisbet and Doidge, I’m learning a lot off the two of them, and that’s helping me. In terms of people they help you all the time, that’s good for a young player obviously, to keep on learning and improving.”
