Hibs star Marvin Bartley: ‘It’s simple – win all our games & we’re champions’


MARVIN BARTLEY has urged Hibs to set their sights on winning all of their remaining league matches as they bid land the Championship title.

The Easter Road outfit slipped up yet again at the weekend when they had to come from behind twice to grab a 2-2 draw with Dumbarton.

It brought Neil Lennon’s side firmly back to earth after the euphoria of their victory over promotion rivals Dundee United in their previous outing.

They now face two massive matches – at home to second-placed Falkirk on Saturday followed by a trip to face third-placed Morton – that are likely to prove pivotal in their bid to return to the Premiership.

And Bartley, who has apologised for giving away the penalty that allowed Christian Nade to nudge Dumbarton in front at the weekend, is determined Hibs will not lose focus on the prize that awaits as they bid to avoid any more setbacks.

He said: “It was a very frustrating afternoon on Saturday. Going into it, we knew it was a game we needed to win to put pressure on the teams beneath us.

“So, it was extremely frustrating. We let ourselves down and, on a personal level, I let the lads down by giving away a penalty, which with my experience I shouldn’t have.


“At the end of the day, we drew the game 2-2 and we have to learn from it and learn quickly.

“If you look at the remaining games then, no matter what happens, if we win all our games then we win the league.

He added on Hibs TV: “It’s that simple. It’s in our hands.

“Regardless of what happens elsewhere, if we win our games then we win the league and that’s what we’ve got to focus on.”
