Pat Fenlon: Hibs manager delighted with win over Hearts

Darren Barr gave Hearts the lead on the stroke of half-time but Leigh Griffiths' superb leveller from a free-kick and Ross Caldwell's 90th-minute strike sealed the win which lifted Hibs above their rivals in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League table.

"To get a sucker punch like that so late on after playing so well and dominating the first half, the character they (the players) showed in the second half to play against them as well as we did was fantastic," said Fenlon.

"We played so well in the first half and had all of the chances and then a sucker-punch goal. That sometimes can knock the stuffing out of players but I said at half-time 'go and win the game'.

"Credit to every one of them, to a man, they were fantastic."

Fenlon is now looking ahead to the Scottish Cup final against Celtic on May 26.

He added: "We need to believe in ourselves and eradicate mistakes.

"It's a great day. I'm thrilled for the supporters. That's what it's about today as we haven't won here for a while against Hearts.

"We've turned the tide a little bit and that's more for them than for anyone else."

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.
