Hibernian boss Pat Fenlon was left frustrated with his team's appetite for a battle after a lacklustre 3-1 home defeat by St Johnstone on Monday night.

Pat Fenlon: The efforts of his players were a cause for concern

The victory at Easter Road allowed Saints to leapfrog their hosts into fourth

spot in the SPL with a late consolation by Leigh Griffiths the only bright note.

Fenlon said: "It was bitterly disappointing to be honest. There was nothing in the game up until the first goal but, after that, we were all over the place and it wasn't good enough.

"I thought St Johnstone played really well but they also worked tremendously hard and we didn't have that tonight. I can't say that too many times about my team this year.

"But definitely tonight we lacked that little bit of urgency, hunger and desire. They looked like they wanted it a little bit more than us."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
