Pat Fenlon: Hoping for big performance from his players against Celtic

Pat Fenlon is looking for his Hibernian players to "stand up and be counted" when they travel to Celtic Park for their crunch Clydesdale Bank Premier League game on Saturday.

Hibs need to win and hope other results involving Aberdeen and Dundee United, who play each other, and Kilmarnock, who play bottom side Dundee, go their way in able to clinch a top-six spot.

However, a win for the home side could see them win the title, a scenario which promises to produce a fiery atmosphere in the east end of Glasgow.

It is under those circumstances that the Hibs boss will be looking for bravado.

"It's going to take a win to get us into the top six and it is always difficult at Celtic Park," Fenlon told Press Association Sport.

"We have to make sure we approach it in the right manner because Celtic have a lot to play for as well.

"With them having the opportunity to win the league, you would imagine their crowd and players will be up for it so we have to make sure we start positively and sprightly.

"We have to make sure we stand up and be counted early in the game, that is really important.

"We need to try to take the game to Celtic at times and be solid at other times.

"We have to make sure we stay in the game for a long period and then obviously there maybe comes a time when we have to throw the kitchen sink at them.

"We have played Celtic twice and drawn and beaten them but we are going to have to play really well, we are not fooling ourselves, they are a top team.

"But in football things can happen and we have to make sure that if things go for us elsewhere, that we do our own business right."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
