HIbs Go To Hampden

Eski Kanka asked for some good news and we can certainly give it to him. Hibs beat St Johnstone 3-1 after extra time to reach the final of the League cup.

Hibs went one up after only three minutes and looked as if they were going to run riot however St Johnstone dug in and turned the game around. From that point on Hibs were second best to everything and were hanging on to their lead by the skin of their teeth.

A deserved equaliser for St Johnstone after 77 minutes was the catalyst Hibs needed though and in the second minute of extra time Murpy scored a free kick. Hibs were reasonably comfortable after that although St Johnstone had a couple of minutes pressure only to be caught at the death.

Not the best performance but we are still going to the final.

  1. OK.... thanks Hibbie Kanka for sending grrrrreat news.

    3-1 means a victoreeee and I'm not going to worry about the 2nd half nerves or the fact that Hibs were `hanging on`. A win is a win !

    Into the Final against Kilmarnock and all to play for. The Cup has not been driven along Princes Street and Easter Road since 1991, so it is long overdue.
