Hibs’ Head Coach Neil Lennon believes that Hibs should have taken all three points against Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Saturday.
Hibs took a large travelling support to the north east and created the better chances but some fine saves from man of the match Joe Lewis meant they returned to the capital with a share of the spoils.
With two games remaining Hibs can still finish second should they win their last two fixtures against city rivals Hearts at Tynecastle and Rangers in front of a full house at Easter Road.
Whatever happens it’s been a remarkable campaign for the newly promoted side.
After the final whistle Lennon spoke to Cliff Pike of Hibernian TV: He said: “I feel we should have won it. We had the better chances and restricted Aberdeen to very little.
“With the height they have they were going to be a threat at set plays and we expected that and we dealt with it. I don’t remember Marciano having a lot to do.
“McGregor Ambrose and Hanlon defended the box brilliantly. In midfield I thought that Whittaker was outstanding. We looked a big strong team sprinkled with quality as well.
“Their goalkeeper got man of the match and that speaks volumes about the way we played.
“I’m disappointed that we haven’t come away with the three points but a point away at Pittodrie at this stage of the season is very impressive.
“Rangers have got Aberdeen on Tuesday so something has to give there but we just have to take care of our own games.
“Seven points from out first three games (after the split) is excellent so we go into the game on Wednesday (against Hearts) with a lot of confidence.
“They are all big games now and we are taking each game as it comes. We are delighted, the players gave me everything.
“We have got ourselves in a great position. It’s been a brilliant unbeaten run. It’s champions form since the turn of the year.
“It’s a statement of intent, not just for now but for next season as well. We have come a long way this season.”
