Hibs No2 Craig backing O'Brien to find form

Hibs assistant boss Tommy Craig insists former Newcastle United winger Alan O'Brien will come good at Easter Road.

He said: "Alan O'Brien will be a big player for Hibs. He has come to a new club and he is still trying to find his feet. I know him like the back of my hand - he has got blistering pace, he has got good delivery of the ball, but he should maybe score a few more goals than he does.

"He has been involved in the pool from day one, but he has not featured in as many games as he would have liked and, that being the case, people ask questions.

"People have been comparing Alan's opportunity with other guys that come in. Filipe Morais has come in and done very well. Because he has done so well he stays in."
