But the 125-cap coach is determined to turn the tide of the Conference League clash after last week’s 3-1 first-leg defeat at Easter Road.

Frick said: “It’s important that we don’t concede a goal at the beginning.

“The game lasts 90 minutes. We can score the two Goals We need in the last ten minutes.

“It is important to find the right balance between defense And attack.

“We have to be reasonable because Hibs are very dangerous for free kicks and throw-ins. The gifts we gave them last week made the tie more complicated.

“But with our fans behind us, there’s no reason why we couldn’t do it.

“We have to find the right thing energy on the pitch from the start.”

The game is expected to be about to sell out at the 16,800 capacity Swissporarena.

After watching Servette get beaten by Rangers in the Champions League on Tuesday night, Frick knows it’s him flying the flag of Swiss football.

He added: “Our supporters will be very important.

“They gave us a lot of energy in the game last Sunday against Young Boys Bern. But it is ours Work to delight the fans by the way we start the game.

“It’s very important for Swiss football that we get through.

“I saw the Servette game and they played really well.

“They had chances to score a second goal in the first half but they conceded a goal. They are unlucky to be out but I think they can continue to do well Europe League.

“It is important that we try to copy their performance, e.g Switzerland and for our association.

“I’m not thinking about playing AstonVilla in the playoff round.

“I have more than enough to think about at Hibs.”

Lucerne captain Max Meyer, who played for Crystal Palace, added: “I wasn’t surprised by Hibs. I played in premier league for three years and I know the level of Scottish football.
