Fenlon pleased with momentum
Hibernian manager Pat Fenlon was pleased with the momentum his
side are building up ahead of the Scottish Cup final after they
David Wotherspoon’s header gave Hibs a 1-0 victories at Easter
Road to make it three wins out of three ahead of their showdown
with Celtic at Hampden next Sunday.
The last time Fenlon’s team lost was against their final
opponents at the start of April.
The Irishman said: “We were looking for a performance and we got
one of them. I was pleased to pick up three points, no injuries and
a decent performance.
“We probably couldn’t ask for any more. We spoke about that when
we won the semi-final, to give ourselves momentum and confidence
going into the final.
“The players have responded very well because it could have been
easy to limp our way through to the final but we have had some
decent performances along the way.”
Wotherspoon did not even make the bench for last season’s final
defeat by Hearts and his goal has given him a chance of making up
for that this season.
“It was a fantastic finish, a great ball from Lewis and a great
header,” Fenlon said. “I’m delighted for him because he has been up
and down this season a little bit but he’s a good lad and works
very hard. I didn’t think he could head a ball that well to be
honest but it was a fantastic finish.”
