Hibernian manager Pat Fenlon was happy enough with his side's performance in the 0-0 home draw with Aberdeen but reminded his players they still have a Scottish Cup final place against Celtic next month to think about.

Fenlon also claimed that the home side edged the game in terms of opportunities created but was pleased with the clean sheet as much as anything else.

"We have so much to play for," said the Dubliner. "We want to finish seventh, we still have Hearts to play and we have a cup final to look forward to so it shouldn't be difficult for anyone to keep themselves focused.

"And if they want to play in the cup final then if they get the chance to play then they give their all and get to the levels that we want."

"It wasn't a classic game but on chances I think we shaded it. Their keeper made a great save from Leigh (Griffiths) late on and (Eoin) Doyle hit the post.

"We had been conceding too many goals, three last week, three the game before that and four the week before that, so it was important that we got back to defending well, so that was probably the most pleasing aspect."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
