Nicky Law’s Friday call to arms for all Hibees

MOTHERWELL midfielder Nicky Law has urged Hibs fans to turn out in force tomorrow night and help play their part in ensuring the nationwide TV audience are treated to another memorable Fir Park spectacle.

The two sides share centre stage as they clash in Britain’s only televised league match tomorrow. And, with a recent history of goal frenzies when these sides meet, Law is hoping Hibs’ travelling support – whom he feels helped create rousing atmospheres when they visited Fir Park last season – will roll up in big numbers again for what has become one of the most eagerly-awaited matches on the SPL calendar.

“Because it’s a Friday, it will probably be the only game on telly at the time so we should get people all over Britain watching,” he said. “If we can put on a good show for a nationwide audience, it can only be good for Scottish football.

“Hibs brought a good support through last year [the attendance was 8,065 when Motherwell beat Hibs 4-3 in a midweek game in February] so hopefully there’s another big crowd this time. The atmosphere that night against Hibs was the best we had last season.”
