Pat Fenlon was able to take positives from his first taste of action as Hibernian manager despite being denied the chance of a debut win by a floodlight fire at Fir Park.

Hibs were leading Motherwell 1-0 through Garry O'Connor's goal when the Clydesdale Bank Premier League match was abandoned at half-time for safety reasons. Firefighters put out the electrical fire in the South Stand floodlight column but could not guarantee the safety of the system and the decision was taken to halt the game 25 minutes after the half-time whistle.

Fenlon said: "There's not a lot we can do about it. We're very disappointed, but you take something out of every performance and it's important that we take the positives. When you put in a shift like that, you get what you deserve and that's what we've got to take, the positives of the performance for 45 minutes."
