Hibs hero David Gray has insisted that Scott Allan and Florian Kamberi will have a big impact this term.
The two attackers are back together at Easter Road. They both look to be on song too, turning in fine performances during the Hibees’ League Cup group stage.
Gray believes that the two of them could make a big difference in Leith this season.
He told the Edinburgh Evening News: “When Flo Kamberi is scoring goals, we are going well. He’s got all the attributes. He’s a big, strong boy, good finisher and he’s one of three and four up top who can score goals. If we can get him going then he’s a huge asset.
“Scott Allan has come back fit and sharp. I expect a really big season from him again. Everyone can see how naturally talented Scott is. When things come off for Scott, he is a fantastic player.”
Allan and Kamberi will be influential for Hibs
Not only are the two good in their own right, but together, Allan and Kamberi are a real force for Hibs.
They linked up brilliantly during the 2017/18 season. Last season though, the Swiss talisman struggled without the service of his midfield partner, who was stuck in the doldrums at Celtic.
Now they are back together, they’re both playing some great stuff. Kamberi has looked sharp in his opening League Cup matches, netting twice already.
Allan has also scored twice, creating Kamberi’s goal against Arbroath in the process.
If the attacking midfielder is playing well, chances are Kamberi is too. Allan is key to how his Swiss talisman performs. Similarly, he doesn’t get the assists if Kamberi doesn’t perform, so there’s an onus on both men to help each other out.
The signs seem to indicate the pair will be lethal once again.
