Cammy can't wait for Hibs clash30 December 2022
The Jambos square off against their city rivals at Tynecastle Park on Monday in a cinch Premiership showdown after bringing in the bells.
Robbie Neilson’s men head into the derby off the back of a thrilling 3-2 win over St. Johnstone in Perth midweek, and our Aussie midfielder praised the Maroons for picking up the points at a historically challenging away venue.
“I thought we made it hard for ourselves against St. Johnstone to be honest,” he told Hearts TV. “We showed in periods of the game what a great team we’re capable of being. McDiarmid is a tough place to go, so to win and show how deep we can dig at times to get a result was good.
“Yeah, we’re all really looking forward to the derby. It’s massive to go into the new year in third considering all the injuries we’ve had. To be in that spot is so good for us and just shows the depth and the character and the tight-knit squad that we have here.”
Form doesn’t count for much whenever the capital’s clubs meet on the pitch – a fact Cammy is all too aware of.
“The Edinburgh derby speaks for itself, you don’t need to explain it,” he added. “We’re excited, and I’m sure the fans will be too. It’s a good one to start the new year and I just can’t wait to get back to Tynecastle and see the place rocking.
“It’s a bit of a cliché, but the thing about derbies is that form goes out the window. It’s eleven players versus eleven players. Anything can happen but we’ll be focusing on our game, looking at them and seeing if there’s anyways we can exploit them. We can’t wait.”
