Group Dymanic Can Make Big Difference

Sometimes it can be just one change in personnel that turns a side's fortunes around

Hibs have made a decent start to the season for them. Recent years have seen them test the patience of their fans with relegation a very real possibility last season. Manager Pat Fenlon has quietly made changes to his squad with a significant number being moved on. His side meet SPL returnees Dundee on Saturday and Fenlon wants fans to turn up in force to back the team. Hibs have lost only two of their first eight games, most recently against Aberdeen last weekend, and are fifth in the SPL. Fenlon believes the impressive start to the campaign is down to the attitude of players who play at Easter Road.

Fenlon said: "As a group, our collective attitude has changed and I think everyone can see that with the results from the opening two months of the season. But we won't pat ourselves on the back - nothing has been achieved just yet. The group are hungry to build on an encouraging start, but fully accept there is room for improvement. The group is still learning - as I've said a few times before, the development of the squad is still a work in progress - and we experienced a hiccup last weekend up at Aberdeen. But hopefully our supporters have recognised a difference in the work ethic, honesty and commitment shown by our group of players. Our supporters have been fantastic and we're still in the early stages of a journey that all together will hopefully bring continued success to the club. Stay with us and if you haven't been to a home game this season then please come along and be part of what's happening at Hibs."
