Fenlon takes Hibs to Tynecastle next Sunday for the clash with Hearts on the back of home defeats to Motherwell and Malmo.

Hibs looked like recovering from their Europa League qualifying nightmare against the Swedes by earning a draw with Motherwell - only to lose a goal seven minutes from time.

But Fenlon was content with much of Hibernian's display in the first league game of the campaign, and he believes there are good reasons to be optimistic for the Hearts match after his charges won 1-0 on their last trip to Tynecastle.

Fenlon said: "Last year we started with a 3-0 defeat at Dundee United and we went on a fantastic run. That's the target this season.

"Everyone says Motherwell are the second best team in the league and we matched them in most departments. Defensively we were solid for most of the game.

"We need to add more in trying to score goals but we will do that over the course of time.

"We'll go there and try to win the game like we did the last time.

"It's three points I'm more interested in, although the supporters will enjoy it if we can go there and win."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
