Just Watch One Man And Pay The Penalty

No team can rely on just one player to win points and the opposition has to prepare for all possibilities
Steve Lomas has warned his side that Hibs are more than just a one-man team. The St Johnstone manager knows all about Leigh Griffiths and his hot-streak of form which has resulted in 13 goals and a Scotland cap. However, the Saints manager, whose side enjoyed a 2-1 win over Kilmarnock at the weekend, is wary of how Hibs have been performing throughout the team this season. Lomas said: "Leigh Griffiths is on fire at the moment. We had it last season with Fran Sandaza who won a lot of games from nothing for us with his goals. So Leigh Griffiths is very much their main man but I wouldn't want to take away from any of their other players. Pat Fenlon has got good, solid, reliable SPL players like Alan Maybury, players who know the league and who won't be bullied, which tended to happen in the past. Pat has put his stamp on that team and by all all accounts they were unlucky to lose against Aberdeen at the weekend, they dominated the game but that seems to be the way in the SPL this season. Everyone can beat everyone else. It's all about taking chances and there is a massive incentive for us. We are at home, we want back-to-back wins and we can push ahead of them in the table, but Hibs will be wanting to bounce back from their defeat. So it has the makings of a good game and we are looking forward to it."
