Hibs have been solid at the back this season – and new signing Alex Gogic has been a very big part of that according to Joe Newell.
The Hibees won their fifth game from seven at the weekend with a fine 3-0 away win to St Mirren. Newell got on the scoresheet, a lovely first time finish from the edge of the box to beat Zdenek Zlamal.
Again Jack Ross’ side kept a clean sheet, yet to concede from open play seven games into the season. It’s a tough test for them next, facing a Rangers side who have yet to concede a goal this term.
Newell has been placed in the centre of midfield this season and it’s something he’s really enjoying. The weekend goalscorer has spoken of his central role and how key contributions from the likes of Gogic are to the Hibees.
