Hibs travel to St Mirren Stadium on the back of four straight defeats, losses which failed to yield a single goal for the Easter Road side.

And it's the lack of firepower up front which Butcher, and his assistant Maurice Malpas, has targeted during his first sessions with the players since joining from Inverness earlier this month.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, he said: "We have both settled in very well here. There a great facilities to work with and to work on.

"Now we need to get the players playing the way we want them to, starting at St Mirren on Saturday. The boys have been tremendous in their response to us and we want to take that onto the pitch now.

"It's a game we have all been looking forward to immensely. It's come round a bit too quick as Maurice and I would have liked another two or three weeks with the players but that wasn't to be.

"We are keen to entertain, keen to win games but what we have to do now is to score a goal. You need to score a goal to win games and we haven't done that in quite a while.

"The last four games have been goalless from our point of view and we've lost all four so the only way is up as far as we are concerned and that is something we are working on.

"The players know they haven't been playing very well but they are a good group and we are just trying to give them a platform to go out and enjoy it. Be themselves, be the best they can be.

"The players are very honest, very hard working so now we have to turn that into a bit of confidence ahead of Saturday and most of alll, try and score those goals."

You can see how Terry Butcher's side shape up in his first game in charge against St Mirren live on Sky Sports 3 from 12.30pm on Saturday

wonder if he'd feel the same way if he wasn't a white, non-jewish heterosexual male. Because Mackay has basically insulted everyone else!
