The 24-year-old will get a chance to impress against the Faroe Islands this evening in Tórshavn with Che Adams out injured and will hope to give manager Steve Clarke a selection dilemma during the next international break.
Nisbet has been somewhat overshadowed by Boyle and his 12 goals for club and country so far this term but is delighted to see his friend and colleague performing so well, heightening the chances of the pair featuring at the 2022 World Cup.
“It’s up to us to get there first. We’ve got a long road ahead of us but back ourselves to do it,” Nisbet said of Scotland’s World Cup hopes.
"[Boyle] is doing brilliantly at the moment. He’s scored a few for Australia as well which is helping them.

“I think they’ve won 11 games in a row and it’s incredible for him. If he keeps it up, and I keep up my form and we bring it back to club business then it’s good for Hibs. ”

“As a striker you always want to score goals. I’ve missed a few but I’ll never stop backing myself to step up to take one,” he added.
“Martin is on them at club level and scored a few but I’ll keep practising and hopefully my turn comes again.”
