Hibs fullback Lewis Miller says that he felt like there were 40,000 fans at Easter Road during last night’s UEFA Europa Conference League clash with Luzern.

The Australian was deputising for the injured Chris Cadden at right back and was blown away by the home support.

He said: “Oh my gosh the atmosphere was unbelievable, there was 13,000 people there, but it felt like 40 (thousand). It was so good for the fans to be on our side; having that much energy around the stadium gave the boys a lift.

“If we can get that week in week out, even for league games as well it’s just going to boost us even more. It was a very great atmosphere and fair play to their away fans as well they really set the atmosphere.

“We’re very keen to get to Switzerland for that second leg and obviously… the Motherwell away game.”

The 22-year-old spent the majority of last season on the sidelines through injury but has impressed the Hibs fans in his few appearances with his strong defensive capabilities and willingness to venture forward.

He continued: “Personally, it lifts my energy to the point where you can’t hear anyone on the pitch. I come from Australia and you get like 4,000 people and most people are there just for family events.

“But here, it’s just a different world… and I’m very happy to be here. Hopefully I can continue to grow and go to the biggest stages in football.”

Club hero and first team coach David Gray has been ‘mentoring’ Lewis Miller during his time at the club. The iconic former fullback was also full of praise for the supporters after last night. He added:

“When you are successful you have nights like last night.

“I thought the atmosphere was fantastic, I thought the crowd were brilliant and even the small number that they (Luzern) brought over were loud and added to the atmosphere as well.

“I thought it was a fantastic night for everyone involved.”
