Alan Stubbs

Hibs passed up a great chance to leapfrog Queen of the South into third place in the Championship yesterday at Easter Road, and afterwards Head Coach Alan Stubbs expressed his disappointment with the result.

Speaking to Hibernian TV, the Englishman said: “We need to do more as individuals and as a team. For the amount of possession we have had, I thought the lads at the back have had a relatively comfortable game but I think from the midfield going forward we just haven’t done enough, especially when you have had that much possession.

“I thought at time we were waiting for something to happen rather than making something happen.

“I would like to have seen more players look to be the one to do something whereas we just waited and hoped that something was going to happen.

“We’d worked on getting into the box. We knew that Queen of the south defended along the six yard line so we worked on cut backs.

“We had one or two opportunities. Heff (Paul Heffernan) had a great opportunity and usually scores them eight time out of ten but it was going to be one of these games. It was just a matter of taking that one chance, but it’s not his fault that we haven’t won this game.

“We can’t have that much of the play and not be more creative in the final third. There was one or two who could have done more.

“I thought Scotty Allan was head and shoulder above anyone on the pitch but he can’t fetch and carry so it’s important that we all have to muck in and give a little bit more that we gave today.

“Listen, they have done really well recently and we haven’t lost the game but it’s a game we should have won.

“I felt like we were going to score a goal but earlier on this season I would have felt that we would have lost the game 1-0. From that point of view we are coming on but I’m disappointed because we have dropped two points today but we will keep going and keep working in training.”
