Fenlon hails players' character

Published Add your comment

Pat Fenlon was delighted with the improved character of his Hibernian players after they came from behind to restore some local pride with a 1-1 draw against Hearts.

But the Hibs manager admits they have a long way to go to win back the faith of the supporters who stayed away from Easter Road following the 5-1 William Hill Scottish Cup final defeat by their Edinburgh rivals in May.

Almost 4,000 Hearts fans filled the away section at Easter Road but little more than 9,000 Hibs fans turned up for the first home match of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League season. Fenlon said: "The attitude and desire was there, we showed a lot of character."
