Liam Miller calls for greater consistency from Hibs

Liam Miller has called on Hibernian to develop some consistency quickly if they want to secure a top-six finish in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

Manager Colin Calderwood has led Hibs to two wins, four defeats and one draw since succeeding John Hughes, with a 3-0 win at league leaders Rangers the highlight.

Hibs finished fourth last season but are five points off the foot of the table this term ahead of Saturday's scheduled meeting with bottom club Hamilton.

Midfielder Miller said: "People talk about the league table but I don't think that there are any easy games in this league right now.

"Everyone is battling for their own cause and I am sure that this will be a difficult match for us but it is one that, if we play to the way that we can, then hopefully we can get all three points.

"We have shown it in dribs and drabs so far but, if we can just do that on a consistent basis, then hopefully we can put a good run of results together over the next few months.

"Our away record is not good, but we have to look at the positive going into the games that we have got coming up.

"The one good thing we can take from the St Johnstone match is that we kept a clean sheet.

"That is something that we can hopefully build on, we want to start shutting up shop at the back but also getting at least one in the net at the other end as well."

Meanwhile, the away allocation of tickets for the New Year's Day derby between Hibs and Hearts at Tynecastle went on sale to season-ticket holders yesterday. They will go on sale to club members tomorrow before a general sale at 10am on Wednesday. Hearts have already sold all of their allocation as the game heads for a sell-out.
