The incident happened after the goals had been scored when Paul Cairney appeared to be caught by Michael Nelson, but referee Bobby Madden booked the Hibs player for simulation instead of pointing to the spot.

Fenlon opted not to hit out at the match official, but the Hibernian manager admits the blunder is be costly as Cairney will serve a suspension after his latest caution.

"I haven't seen it so it is difficult to comment," Fenlon said. "But Paul said he caught him and some of the players who seen it on the televisions said it was a penalty.

"These things happen. I am not one to come in and criticise the referee but if he has got it wrong I am sure he will hold his hand up.

"Maybe I need to moan a little bit more and I might get a few more for us but some of them go for you, some of them don't.

"I am more disappointed with the yellow card because we will lose Paul through suspension and that is more disappointing than the actual decision."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
