Dunfermline Dump Hibs

Dunfermline knocked Hibs out of the Scottish Cup by one goal to nil last night thanks to a late penalty.

It was an entertaining game that mirrored the previous game in that Hibs created more chances from more posession but could not find the calmness or luck in front of goal.

Hibs had brought back most of their main players after resting them at the weekend. Damion Gray however retained his place after scoring against Aberdeen and Lewis Stevenson also had a starting place.

It was a game that was frustrating due to a lack of goals however there was no lack of incident or committment. The most controversial incident happened with five minutes to go.

First Hibs were denied a decent penalty claim when Dean Sheils was pushed over in the box. Dunfermline then went up the field and forced a corner.

From this corner the ball broke to Hammel who was sent tumbling for Dunfermlines penalty. A very cheeky chip down the middle from McIntyre sealed a cup final place for Dunfermline.

Looks like Hibs will have to wait another year for Scottish Cup glory. I suppose two cups in one year is just being plain greedy!

  1. Depressed, Frustrated, Disappointed, Gobsmacked, Pissed-Off ??? Perm any 1 from 5 !!

    As I have said before, and as I will keep saying..... Hibs have a God given right to be in YooRo footie. The problem is that God is a busy guy and I can understand that. However, I have to ask him.... what was more important than Hibs last Tuesday ???!!!

    Anyway, it is now history and we should look forward to next season and more silverware. That's not being greedy is it ?!

    Perhaps Hibbie Kanka can advise if there is a chance for an Inter-Toto Cup invitation ??
