Fenlon's praise for Hibs' Doherty

PAT FENLON has heaped more praise on Irish defender Matt Doherty after he made himself right at home in the SPL with Hibernians.

Doherty, 20, joined Hibs on loan from Wolves last month and has made a big impact at Easter Road, winning the man of the match award in Saturday's 0-0 draw with Aberdeen which helped Hibs move a point clear of bottom side Dunfermline.

"I knew Matt was going to be a really good player for us. His attitude is fantastic," said Fenlon who was pleased with how Doherty coped despite being moved from his traditional right back position into a central defensive role against Aberdeen. "He's given us a bit of a problem where we play him now, which is a plus."
