MARTIN CANNING has set his sights on causing another upset this weekend as Hibernian visit the SuperSeal stadium.

The 35-year-old has insisted that his side won’t let the 2-0 victory at Ibrox against Rangers go to their heads but instead aim to do the double over Neil Lennon’s Hibs.

“The biggest thing for us, as much as you have to enjoy a result like that because it doesn’t happen very often, is you need to refocus.


“It can be quite easily forgotten a couple of weeks down the line if you’re not picking up results. Nobody remembers that you beat Rangers or beat Hibs at the start of the season, it’s the here and now.”

Hibs were comprehensively beaten by Canning’s Accies at the reverse fixture in August with a 3-1 and Canning has insisted that his players will not let the Ibrox win affect their preparation for Saturday’s match.

“When we went to Hibs and beat them earlier this season, they were just off the back of beating Rangers at Ibrox, and maybe approached our game with the same mentality that we are trying to avoid approaching this game with: you’ve had a really good result and you just think the next game is going to take care of itself.

“That’s not the way it works. That’s a warning for us.”
