Hibernian Defender Forster Admits Ambrose’s Influence On His Progress

Hibernian Defender Forster Admits Ambrose’s Influence On His Progress

Hibernian young defender Jordon Forster says he has learnt how to become a better defender from Nigeria international Efe Ambrose and other senior defenders at the Scottish championship winners.

On Saturday, Hibernian were presented with the Championship trophy after playing a 1-1 home draw against St. Mirren with Ambrose playing 90 minutes.

Despite not being a regular with Hibernian this season, Forster, 23, acknowledges that courtesy of  Ambrose and the other experienced Hibernian players, he has improved as a defender with the ball on his feet.

"I know I am not playing every week, but I’m becoming a better player through training with the guys here," Forster tells Edinburgh News.

“I’ve learned a lot from all the guys: Darren McGregor in how he defends one-on-one, Efe and Paul [Hanlon] on the ball, Liam Fontaine’s leadership. I take bits from them all.

“I’ve probably learned the most from Daz because defending one-on-one in isolated situations is where I need to work hardest," Forster says.

Ambrose joined Hibernian on loan from Scottish Premier League champions Celtic in January, and was instrumental in the club winning the second division title and also promotion back to the top flight.

The 2013 Africa Cup of Nations winner was voted Scottish Championship Player of the Month for March.
