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."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
