Craig Conway was left pleased with the afternoon's work after bagging the opener on his return to his homeland in the 2-0 win at Hibernian on Sunday.

The midfielder opened the scoring just a couple of minutes after entering the action as he bend a delightful strike into the corner of Ross Laidlaw's net.
 
Willem Tomlinson added a second soon after and Conway was left reflecting on a tough but rewarding game in Paul Hanlon's testimonial at Easter Road.
 
“It was tough out there as it was really hot and I think it’s the first time there’s ever been a water break in Scotland!" he joked.
 
“It was good for everybody to get 45 minutes, get that match fitness started and to come through unscathed.
 
“It was good and a strike I really enjoyed. I just thought I’d hit it and luckily enough it went in. I feel great, I feel fit, I’m sure everyone’s the same and it’s just good to continue winning games, whether that be a pre-season friendly or not.
 
“They’re a good side and are slightly more ready than us having played some pre-season games already and having a European tie next week, so it was a brilliant test for us to get settled back in.
 
“It’s good to play teams who are slightly ahead of us in pre-season but I don’t think it really showed to be honest," the Scot added.
 
“We’ve been working really hard in the last few weeks, certainly harder than normal and it showed that fitness wise. At time it is tough but when you play, you feel the benefits and it’s all worth it."
