Kevin Nisbet: I have proved I can score goals - Hibs can help make it with Scotland
But if his ongoing improvement has surprised anyone else, it has not shocked the 23-year-old.
“I have always backed my ability,” said Nisbet. “I said that at the start of the season before we had even played a game, I said I would score goals and I have proved that.”There have been seven so far, from just nine starts, and he has also weighed in with assists and proved an industrious team-mate as Hibs pieced together a positive start to the season.
The one of Saturday was a satisfying effort and completed the turnaround in fortunes.
“Yeah, it was a great finish. It is one of those ones where the weight was already on the ball and I just needed to guide it into the top corner and thankfully it went.”
And he believes he is worthy of his place in Scotland boss Steve Clarke’s thoughts, having signed for Hibs in the hope of proving that.
“I have been in good form this season. I have been scoring goals and I am high in confidence.
“That was definitely one of the reasons for coming here but my feet are still firmly on the ground and I am just focused on Hibs right now and playing week in, week out and scoring goals and helping the team.”
