Lennon felt he got his set up wrong in the opening half, in which Hibs were rewarded for their early dominance when Leigh Griffiths got between Thomas Rogne and Fraser Forster to score the decisive goal.

"I thought it was a great atmosphere, a great game, played in great spirits and I'm not disappointed with our performance at all," said Lennon.

"For 70 minutes we dominated. I was disappointed with our final ball and composure in front of goal but on another day we would have won comfortably.

"In terms of attitude, desire and intensity I can't fault the players at all. It was there for all to see, we just lacked an edge.

"I am disappointed with the goal obviously and my own formation. I'll take the blame for that.

"The three at the back didn't work for us today, but when we went back to a flat back four we looked in control."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
