Hibs striker Florian Kamberi reckons he and Christian Doidge are starting to combine very well together at Easter Road.

Now being used together in a two-striker formation, Doidge and Kamberi have both netted in their last two games together.

Their latest exploits came in a 3-1 win over Motherwell. After initially going behind inside ten minutes, Doidge and Kamberi managed to score alongside Daryl Horgan to hand Jack Ross a victory in his first game.

Both strikers are starting to get going after difficult starts to the season, a boost for the new manager. Kamberi says a formation change is helping Hibs’ striker department thrive.


“I think everyone is very motivated and, in my opinion, we’re now playing a very good formation,” said Kamberi.

“It’s a 4-4-2 diamond with two up top. And I think the most successful times the club has had, it was always with two up front. The last two games, we’ve been very, very good when playing two up top. That made the difference.

“Everyone knows that Scott Allan can play the final pass, Doidge is very good in the air, and I do all the other stuff on the floor. It’s a very good mix.

“I think in the last two games, we’ve shown that pretty well. I hope that continues. I think myself and Doidge have a good partnership and we’ve shown we can play very well together, him with his strengths and me with my strengths. It has worked out pretty well for the team.”
