McPake urges Hibernian to be patient in Malmo return leg

James McPake believes Hibernian will be well-served if they remain patient in Thursday night’s Europa League qualifier against Malmo.

James McPake believes Hibernian will be well-served if they remain patient in Thursday night’s Europa League qualifier against Malmo.

The Hibs take on the Swedes at Easter Road following last week’s 2-0 defeat and skipper McPake has urged them to go about their business in a reserved manner in order to whittle away the deficit.

“Getting a goal will give Malmo a bit of a fright, no matter how late it might be,” he said.

“If it takes 80 minutes to get the first goal, I don’t care. We will be patient.

“The boys won’t be gung-ho and look to win the game in the first half. That would be silly.

“Everyone wants to get the first goal, but we need to be cautious to ensure we don’t concede again and give them an advantage.

“We know we can put on a show for them and get back into this tie.”
