Martin Boyle: Hibs forward 'hard on himself' - but contribution hailed
Hibs boss Jack Ross has revealed that the club’s forward Martin Boyle is “hard on himself” over performance levels.
The 27-year-old Australian internationalist has not scored for Hibs since September 12 when he netted in a 3-0 win on St Mirren, although he has contributed numerous assists, including two in Sunday’s Betfred Cup triumph over Dundee.
Ross is happy with the contribution of Boyle, who signed a new contract with Hibs earlier in the season, and said: “He's hard on himself because sometimes he doesn't feel that he's hit the levels he's been at last season, but he's provided a heck of a lot of assists this season and his contribution again was vital against Dundee.”
The Hibs boss used Boyle in attack against the Dees and Ross explained his decision.
"We've got players who have got that flexibility playing different roles and I thought he [Martin] helped us be good in the opening 50/55 minutes of the game," added Ross.
