Caldwell: We're heading for the Treble
"Toughness, physically and mentally, will be really important for us from now on but we won't just win the title through determination." said the Japanese midfielder "Hibs are a good side and we know that it will be difficult against them. At home, we still have a good record but we need to control the game more. Against Dundee United, we were under pressure for spells of the match. We need to concentrate on making passes, keeping the ball and making sure we control the game. It won't be easy though. Hibs have strong, attacking players. They pass the ball well and look to get players forward. It should be a good game for the supporters."
Naka's first taste of glory with the club came in the 2006 League Cup final against Dunfermline - a game in which he played a pivotal role - and with a semi-final against Dundee United at Hampden coming up next Wednesday he has his sights on another League Cup medal too. "Of course, the League Cup is very important for us. We are playing at Hampden in a semi-final, so it will be an important match. I would be very happy to win that tournament again, but I don't really distinguish between different competitions when I prepare for a game. I just look at the ways I can help the team win the match."
Gary Caldwell would also like to see the team get back to the form that saw them generate the fantastic winning run but although he's disappointed with recent results he's not downhearted "We're two points clear in the league which, if you had given us that after the Rangers game back in August, we would have snapped your hand off for it." he said "We are still in both cups as well, and for the first time since I've been here we have a real opportunity to go and win the Treble without having Europe as another strain on the resources. We can focus on the Treble now and really go for it because I believe we have a group of players who can win that."
