Jack Ross backs Doidge as the striker spends another goalless night

Sun 28 February 2021 | 12:00

Hibernian boss says the striker is contributing to the team and should not be judged solely on his goal return.

Hibernian

were defeated in their Saturday match against

Motherwell

with a 2-0 result.

Christian Doidge

missed two chances in the second half which could have turned the game around for the Hibs. The 28-year-old has scored only 7 goals in his 35 matches for Hibernian in their current campaign. The Welsh striker is now on a disappointing 13-match goal drought but

Jack Ross

says he still plays a key role in the team’s plans.

“It happens and he feels it because he’s a conscientious player and personality.”

Ross said after the match.

“His contribution since he got back in the team in terms of his all round play has been excellent, and his all round play was good today.

“But, harshly, strikers are always going to be judged on their goal return.

“He knows that, he’s not going to shy away from it, it’s our job to cajole and help our players through any challenging period and he’ll be fine.

“His all round performance and contribution to the team is good.

“A lot of strikers are streaky in terms of the runs they are on, where they feel good in front of goal and other times where they have frustrating periods.”
