Pat Fenlon: Hibernian boss was relieved to see his side earn a point against Dun

Hibs went into their fifth competitive game of the campaign looking for their first goal on the back of four successive defeats.

Scott Robertson's strike nine minutes from time cancelled out a Stuart Armstrong goal to earn a valuable point on a day when Hibernian midfielder Kevin Thomson and United defender Gavin Gunning were dismissed for violent conduct after raising their hands to each other.

"I suppose that we scored and picked up a point, there is a bit of relief," Fenlon said. "But it wasn't a great performance to be honest with you, especially in the first half, when we were very, very poor.

"The sending-off seemed to galvanise us for some reason and we seemed to get going. I don't know why that happened. Afterwards we wanted to fight and scrap for the ball. But we didn't want to do that before."

United boss Jackie McNamara felt the incident leading to the red cards was a turning point in the match.

McNamara said: "I have spoken to Gav and he said he didn't throw a punch. The referee said that they were fighting, so you can take what you can from that.

"I think the two of them adopted an aggressive manner, which merits a yellow card. It changed the game and gave their crowd something to cheer about."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
