Hibs would have gone top of the SPL had they won, with Celtic losing to Inverness, and Fenlon admitted he was hugely frustrated not to win the game, let alone lose it.

"Results elsewhere don't really come into it." Fenlon said. "We didn't deserve to lose the game today.

"It feels worse than last week (a 3-1 defeat to Dundee) because we didn't deserve anything out of that, but this week we deserved to win. Even a draw I think would have been a travesty.

"Their keeper (Jamie Langfield) was fantastic today, particularly the save he made from Eoin Doyle in the first half.

"I'm not sure exactly how many shots Leigh Griffiths has had but again the goalkeeper has made some great saves.

"We have to take it on the chin and move on."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
