In Sunday’s match against Alloa, Niklas Gunnarsson made his home debut for Hibernian, following matches away to home against Raith Rovers, Greenock Morton and Heart of Midlothian.

He says that it was good that he got to experience playing at Easter Road Stadium in front of the home fans, who he reserved praise for.

Gunnarsson has enjoyed the backing that the supporters have given the team, both home and away – especially appreciating the rendition of Sunshine on Leith at Easter Road following the Edinburgh Derby victory.

He said: “It was a good feeling to finally play at Easter Road, it’s nice to play at home as you feel that you have all the support from the fans, which I again thought was very, very good. I was very satisfied to play at the home ground.

“I have said on many times that our fans are very, very, good. After the Hearts game when they were singing Sunshine on Leith, it was absolutely brilliant. It was a great feeling and experience for myself.

“Again when we were playing against Alloa, the fans supported us all the time and even when we are not playing so well, they are behind us all the time – that’s good.”

The right-back, who hails from Norway, believes that the match against Morton will be difficult, just like every game in the Ladbrokes Championship has been.

Despite Hibernian being favourites for a majority of matches in which they play, Gunnarsson insists that every game in football is a tough prospect, and is not as straight-forward as people may assume.

He said: “When we play in the league, people expect that we will win every game easily, but in football when a new game comes up it is always difficult. It is difficult to break down teams, especially if they play quite deep.

“This will be our third match against Morton, we have won both the others 1-0 and they have been good playing against us. They are good at defending and they work really hard, they fight for every ball.

“We need to make sure we win the first ball, the second ball and the third ball, and if we do that, we have the quality to win the match.”

Walsall player 150. Dávid Gróf


Dávid Gróf (born 17 April 1989) is a Hungarian footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Berliner AK. Gróf started his senior career with Scottish club Hibernian, making one appearance during the 2008–09 season before being released from his contract. He subsequently played in England for Notts County, Tamworth, Mansfield Town and Walsall.
Gróf started his professional career with Hibernian, making his professional debut in their 4–3 defeat by Greenock Mortonin the Scottish League Cup on 26 August 2008.
Later that season, Gróf was convicted of a drink driving offence and was consequently banned from driving for two years. Hibs also disciplined the player, who made a public apology through the club’s website. He was relegated to the status of fourth choice goalkeeper at Hibs after the arrival of Grzegorz Szamotulski during January 2009. Gróf went on trial at West Bromwich Albion, but was released by Hibs towards the end of the 2008–09 season, despite having 18 months left on his contract
Following his release by Hibs, Gróf trained with English League Two side Gillingham, featuring in a reserve team match against Lewes.
Gróf went on trial with League One club Notts County in July 2010. He agreed a deal to sign for the club, subject to medical. On the same day as the deal with Notts County was announced, Gróf played for Tamworth in a friendly match against Aberdeen. He completed the move on 26 July. On 4 August 2010 it was confirmed that Gróf would be joining The Lambs on a one month loan deal in time for the new season Just six days later Gróf was recalled by his parent club.
Gróf signed on loan with Conference National club Mansfield Town on 31 January 2011. Grof played an integral part in Mansfield’s FA Trophy run which saw the Stags lose to Darlington in the final at Wembley on 7 May. Despite not being permitted to play in the final itself, Grof became a hero to the Mansfield fans due to his performances in both the FA Trophy and the Conference National, and appeared before the game against Darlington to a standing ovation from the 15000 strong travelling Mansfield fans.
Despite rave reviews of his performances at Mansfield, Grof was waived by Notts County at the end of the season alongside defender Graeme Lee
Following a trial spell, Gróf signed a one year contract with Football League One side Walsall in July 2011.  Gróf made his full Walsall debut against Bournemouth, keeping a cleen sheet in a 2-0 win, and then made his home debut the following game—a Football League Trophy first round fixture against Shrewsbury Town, which Walsall won 2-1.. On 17 March 2013, Gróf announced that he was moving to France to pursue a career away from the Saddlers, having fallen down the pecking order at Walsall behind a string of successive loan goalkeepers manager Dean Smith had signed due to his poor early season form
On 18 March 2013, Gróf began his trial with Clermont, successfully completing the first part of his medical and training with the first team later that day.
In November 2013, Gróf moved to German side Goslarer SC, where he remained until the end of the season before signing for Berliner AK.
Gróf’s father Attila also played professionally as a goalkeeper, for Vasas Budapest, Újpesti Dózsa, Videoton, Honvéd and Hungary.
Gróf was convicted of a drink driving offence and banned from driving for two years. He was charged with another drink driving offence in April 2009
