St Mirren manager Danny Lennon praised his side's detemination to play attractive football after a 2-1 win over Hibernian.

The club's second league victory of the season came thanks to goals from Steven Thompson and Steven Thomson.

"Results will dictate whether we can maintain our league position," Lennon said.

"What we're saying is: this is our style, this is our identity, this is our blueprint - and we won't change."

Lennon is now in his second season in charge of the Paisley side and says he is gaining confidence in his style of football.

"I certainly have a bigger feel for the club and what it means to the people of Paisley and now I have my own team out there," he said.

"We're very happy with the progress that we've made this season.

"If we can improve every week then we'll be heading in the right direction.

"Everyone I speak to is proud of this team at the moment."

Lennon was particularly pleased to take points away from the capital in what he believed was a resurgent performance from a Hibs side that lost heavily to Kilmarnock last week.

"I thought Colin got a great reaction from his players," Lennon told BBC Radio Scotland.

"They made it very difficult for us and they were in the game right until the final minute.

"It is always a difficult place to come, so to take three points back to Paisley is a tremendous result.

"That's what we asked for: to play a brand of football in a manner that's going to produce winning results and score goals. We're delighted."
