The club have picked up just three points from a possible 21 since thrashing Hamilton 6-0.

Hibernian assistant Garry Parker has told his players they need to put more effort in and return to winning ways immediately.

Parker signalled that head coach Neil Lennon was ready to move into the transfer market in January after a seven-match run without a win.

The former Nottingham Forest and Leicester midfielder stated after Wednesday's home draw with St Mirren that some players were not turning up and performing.

And his patience is running thin ahead of Saturday's Ladbrokes Premiership clash with Hamilton.

"The players know who they are and they need to improve," he said.

"I hope (they react positively to the comments) because I would if I was a player. It's up to them, when they cross that white line they have got to put on a performance because the last few weeks they haven't been doing it

"I think it's been taken on board but they have got to try a little bit harder, put a bit more effort in. They have to work as hard as they possibly can and, if they do that, other things will take shape.

"You can have a bad game but you have got to put as much work into it as possible."

Striker Florian Kamberi was handed a personal warning after Parker stated on Wednesday he had to improve all aspects of his game after being hauled off in the 54th minute.

"It's been a few weeks now that I've had a few things to say to Florian, and it's about time now that he has turned it around and put in a performance," Parker said. "We can't keep waiting for him."

Hibs beat Hamilton 6-0 two months ago to set up a chance to move top of the table against Celtic in their next game.

But they have only taken three points out of a possible 21 since and have dropped to eighth.

When asked what has gone wrong, Parker said: "You have got to look at the players, when they go on to the pitch it's down to them as well. Obviously we are going to take the blame.

"It's disappointing because when we first came in, we got them out of the Championship and last year finished fourth, could have been second, the highest points, the crowds are coming back, probably playing the best football we have ever done.

"We started off OK this season and we are not doing it. And we've not done it.

"We need to get through this month and come January we need to recruit."

When asked how these situations normally end in his experience, the 53-year-old said: "With a win. Just get three points and give everyone a lift.

"But we have waited long enough for this now, it needs to happen. Sooner rather than later."
