Hibernian of Scotland defender, Efe Ambrose has declared that his side will bounce back from their loss to Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup, and says he believes they have enough quality to fight back on another day.
The Hibs lost 6-5 on penalties at home, after ending the game goalless at regulation time but, while acknowledging that luck was not in favour of his side during the match, Ambrose enthused that better days lie ahead of them this season.
Footballlive.ng can report that the former Kaduna United and SC Ashdod of Israel versatile defender took to social media to express his hopes for Hibernian, and declared that they will rev the arsenal to fight harder.
So far this term, Hibernian are third on the table with 11 points after winning three games, drawn two and lost one, level with Rangers but with a better goal difference, but behind Hearts with 16 points.
Though Ambrose lamented his side’s Scottish Cup defeat on Tuesday at home against Aberdeen, he is happy over the recent arrival of Mark Milligan, who joined the team from Al Ahli of Saudi Arabia.
The 33-year-old Australian just played two games for Hibs, but has already won the hearts of the manager, Neil Lennon and fans.
Ambrose said the new addition has demonstrated so much zeal and maturity within the short time with the team.
The former Super Eagles defender reckoned further that Milligan would be able to contribute in turning Hibernian’s fortunes around as the season grows, but admitted that their loss to Aberdeen was a huge setback, which they have to overcome and fight back stronger.
Ambrose declared: “It was a tough game. We gave our all but somehow luck was not on our side. Football is like that. We fight another day.
“He (Milligan) is experienced and talented. He can play anywhere in the defence and to have him in front of the back three is a big plus.
“Our team is much better with him around and it will reflect in our subsequent matches.”
