Hibs manager Colin Calderwood looks for key win

Calderwood's side have struggled for form since he took over in October

Hibernian manager Colin Calderwood has insisted it is too early to talk of a crisis at Easter Road.

The Edinburgh were thumped 4-1 at Kilmarnock on Sunday and have now won one and lost two of their league fixtures ahead of Saturday's match with St Mirren.

"We need to bounce back, we need to get a home victory and we need to show the fans we're up for the season," he said.

"The weekend was a reverse and we'll take it on the chin."

Calderwood's side struggled last term as they finished 10th in the Scottish Premier League.

"What we're looking for is to be inconsistent - to do that we need to win," he added in jest.

"We lost the last one and we had to address it and we did quite quickly after Kilmarnock and showed the things we know we have to improve.

"They were so glaring that it makes it quite easy to go and work at that.

"The other side is to show them the things they did excellently and there were one or two things.

"I think we'll make good progression because of the defeat but also because they're a group who have got much more to give and show than they did last Sunday and I know they've got the ability in there.

"We're looking forward to the weekend. It's an appetising game."
