Cal Ready To Answer Gaffer's Call

4th October 2019

Cal Morrison is confident that he's ready to answer Craig Levein's call should the winger be picked to start this weekend.

The Jambos face Kilmarnock at Tynecastle on Saturday and a win could see them leapfrog their opposition in the table.

"It's a big game," Cal told the media on Friday. "Kilmarnock aren't picking up too many results as well.

"It's a good chance for us at home as well, for the fans to get behind us and we can go and get the win. Kilmarnock is always a hard game, home or away. I think we need to go into it with a positive mindset, especially after the last three games."

Craig Levein's side are on their best run this season, having won two out of their last three.

"There's a lot of fight for the manager," the winger added. "All the boys are obviously trying when they go out on the pitch and giving it their all, but things haven't worked out. I'm confident we've turned the corner." 

20-year-old Cal is determined to make his way back into the starting XI having returned from a lengthy knee injury.

"It's been hard for myself, fitness-wise. I played a few reserves games before I came back in at Hibs. When I came on, I was ready to go and it was good to make a wee bit of an impact.

"Coming on against Aberdeen, it didn't quite work out for me but I got the call on Saturday against St Mirren. I just need to get my head down, work hard and when the gaffer calls me, I'm ready."
