The victory came as welcome relief following successive defeats to Dundee and Aberdeen and Fenlon admitted they needed a morale-boost ahead of the Scottish Cup fourth round tie on Sunday.

"It's a big three points for us," Fenlon said. "We were under the cosh a bit, they had a fair few corners which we defended quite well."

Hibs keeper Ben Williams saved a penalty from Nigel Hasselbaink with the score at 0-0 on 79 minutes - and then the rebound from Liam Craig - and Fenlon said that turned the game.

"Ben saving the penalty gave our players a lift and maybe deflates them a little bit," he said.

"It happens a lot in football, you save a penalty go up the pitch and the other team score. I was delighted it was us tonight.

"The penalty save was a good save, but I think the follow up was a better one. He's been a really good signing and he's made some terrific stops."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
