Fenlon's feeling fine

Pat Fenlon hopes his Hibernian players take confidence from their 3-2 success over Inverness in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

The visitors had trailed to Greg Tansey's 59th minute penalty, but Paul Hanlon levelled five minutes later before Garry O'Connor gave them the lead with a composed finish 15 minutes from time.

In a frantic finish, a cross by Jonny Hayes found the far corner in the 83rd minute, only for Leigh Griffiths to win it for Hibs with a well-taken left foot strike five minutes from the end.

The victory moves Hibs six points clear of bottom club Dunfermline and manager Fenlon is hopeful it will have done much to improve morale amongst his players.

He said: "It's a fantastic three points. We rode our luck at times and Graham Stack has had to make some great saves but I felt we deserved it as we've not always had the rub of the green ourselves.

"We seemed a little fearful in the first half and sat back, but we showed what we are capable of as a team in the second half and hopefully now the players will take some belief from that."
