Has John Brown stirred things up at Hibs to encourage them to get a result against the Buddies?

Pat Fenlon does not appear to have much time for the criticism coming from interim manager of bottom club Dundee, John Brown, who described Hibs showing against Aberdeen on Monday as "woeful". Dundee have been dicing with relegation for most of the season and need Hibs to at least draw against fellow relegation strugglers St Mirren tomorrow if they are to have any chance of extending their fight against relegation for another week. After watching the Scottish Cup finalists draw a blank at Easter Road against the Dons, Brown said that he "didn't see any hunger, desire or willingness to put their foot in," while predicting a result for the Buddies in Leith. Fenlon was disparaging with his response to multi-tasking Brown comments.He said: "Obviously we know what he is trying to do but I'm not really too concerned about it. There was only one team on the pitch (on Monday) when you looked at the game. We created three or four really good chances so I am not worried about what he has to say. I have a big job trying to manage Hibs, he seems to be able to manage Dundee, Hibs and Rangers at the same time.I don't know how he does that - I am busy enough doing this one. I don't need any pressure from outside, I put pressure on myself to win football matches. You will probably be better off asking him what is his thinking behind it."
