Hibs boss Nick Montgomery has put the club’s recent winless run down to “small margins” as he looks to get them back to winning ways imminently.
The Easter Road side haven’t won in their last six games, recording four draws and two defeats and the manager only has one league victory to his name since making his debut on September 16.
Their last win was against St Mirren in the League Cup quarter-finals last month and they come up against the high-flying Paisley side again on Wednesday.
Montgomery watched his side lose a keenly contested semi-final at Hampden to ten-man Aberdeen on Saturday, but he insists his team deserved more on the day.
He said: “It’s just small margins. You know, it is putting the ball in the back of the net, it’s getting decisions that we probably should get. And it’s also making sure we don’t switch off in key moments and get punished like we did.
“I think it was Aberdeen second shot on goal, you know, in 74 minutes and we conceded it. So that’s down to us. We didn’t react as well as we should’ve done.
“And ultimately it’s just one moment in the game that cost us the game because every other stat in the game was positive towards us winning the game.
“But stats don’t win a game, putting the ball in the back of the net does. We need to start doing that a little bit more because we had enough chances to win two games.”
Hibs travel west to take on Stephen Robinson’s side who are currently sitting third in the Premiership, with the Edinburgh club sitting in eighth and looking to get three points on the board that could see them jump up to fifth.
