Hibs skipper is backing Proctor

Thomson would like to see Proctor given a chance
Captain Kevin Thomson is the latest Hibernian player to back caretaker boss Mark Proctor for an extended run in the Easter Road dugout.

Thomson told the Daily Record: "Anyone who watched the team play at Dunfermline must have felt it was as if nothing had changed.

"And, for now, we would all love to see Mark get the chance.

"It appears to me that the transition would be just about seamless and that's what everyone is looking for."

Proctor's case for succeeding the recently departed Tony Mowbray was boosted by Hibs' 4-0 triumph at East End Park on Monday.

"Mark has all the same qualities as Tony," added midfielder Thomson.

"They share the same philosophies, the same approach to the game and the same hunger and ambition."

There has been no change in the dressing room or around the club

Earlier this week, Hibs full-back David Murphy voiced his support for the former Darlington coach, who Mowbray brought to Edinburgh at the end of August.

And French star Guillaume Beuzelin would also be pleased to see Proctor remain in charge.

The midfielder, who is on course for a return after 10 months out through injury, told the Daily Record: "Tony leaving hasn't had a big effect, to be honest.

"It's like the same guy with Mark.

"There has been no change in the dressing room or around the club and we are happy with Mark in charge."

Proctor spent seven years as a youth coach at Middlesbrough before moving to Darlington in June 2004.
