Default Motif enrichment in MEME - CentriMo

I have a list of differentially epxressed gene for which I would like to see whether they are enriched over background (non DE genes) for a specific binding motif (looking at 10kb TSS).
I have used CentriMo for this but a) an not sure it's the best algoritham, and b) am unsure about the interpretation of the results.
Because I have only queried one motif, my e-value = p-value. However I'm not sure how to interpret the Fisher E-value.
Looking at the graph, there does not seem to be an enrichment.
The E-value is 3e-75, but the fisher E-value is 1. Per the literature I would interpret there is no enrichment over background. Am I correct?
Is there another more appropriate way to predict enrichment?
