Hibernian manager Pat Fenlon admitted he was not unduly concerned about the quality of the football after his side beat Edinburgh rivals and cup holders Hearts 1-0 in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.

David Wotherspoon's deflected effort in the 82nd minute secured victory for Hibs, who had not beaten the Jambos in their previous 12 meetings, including a 5-1 drubbing in the final of last season's competition.

"In cup football you take what's going, we showed great character today," said Fenlon.

"There wasn't loads of football played in the game but I'm delighted for the supporters. They're the people that deserve it today.

"They can go away with their heads held high. They've been down in the doldrums for too long, to be honest, and that was for them."

Despite being delighted with the result, Fenlon did not feel it was a reaction to losing last season's cup final to Hearts.

"I don't think so, that's got nothing to do with it," he added.

"It's about rebuilding this club and getting us back to where we should be."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
