Hibs cruised through to the next round of the League cup with a comfortable four nil win at Easter Road. I never made the match due to another arrangement but the reports have Hibs as comfortable winners. Peterhead are from the second division and were always going to be up against it, losing a goal in six minutes did not help their cause but to their credit they stuck to the task in hand. Hibs added another on the half hour and had completed the scoring by 65 minutes. Tony Mowbray then threw on a few subs rather than risk any knocks to key players as the Celtic match looms on Saturday.
The Peterhead goalkeeper (Paul Mathers) seemed to be the player that got most praise from the Hibs fans and that is even after more tricks from Zemamma. Good to see the fans can recognise the efforts of other players even when they do not wear the Emerald Green.
I think the draw for the next round is on Monday, hopefully another home draw against a lower league team. No point making it hard for yourself.
