    I stayed to the end but like a whole heap of others had started making my way down towards the exit tunnel. When the first went in everyone stopped leaving meaning a big crush at the tunnel. When the second went in it was chaos. I fell and when I got up my top had a lovely pattern of footprints all over it!! Them were the days.[/QUOTE

    Those tunnels at the Gorgie Road End were horrendous, especially as the majority of the Hibs support used to congregate right behind the goals just above and below them. More luck than design that there wasn't a serious accident.

    Btw, the YouTube footage BillyHibs posted could well have been from.that game; it suggests the goal was New Year's Day 1986 but apparently it was Colin Harris who scored.

    I discovered that by perusing Hearts results from that season. Think it's worth pointing out that on the opening day of 85-86 they were 1-0 up v Celtic until Paul McStay equalised in injury time. If Hearts had held out for the win, they would've been Marshall's Chunky Chicken Champions the week before Albert Kidd Day 😁
    Jeez, Marshall a Chunky Chickens, never heard that for years. My dad was a farm manager and we lived on it outside of Tullibody. Still there I understand but new company manage farms.

    Scottish League Championship 9/4/2016

    Alloa 1 v 0 HIBS

    Weeks away from immortality HIBS continued to stutter in the League losing this encounter to a Duffy goal that had shades of England 1966 written all over it and was doubtful if it had actually crossed the line

    HIBS failed to convert chances that fell to Hanlon Gray Stokes Keatings and Cummings against Jack Ross’s basement boys before Oxley saved a late strike from Duffy

    Hibs : Oxley Gray and Gunnarsson Hanlon Stevenson and Fyvie Henderson McGinn Keatings Cummings and Stokes

    Subs: Boyle for Keatings 62 Dagnall for Cummings 75

    Unused : Bartley Handling MacGregor Thomson and Virtanen

    Att: 1364






    Scottish League SPL 9/4/2011

    Aberdeen 0 v 1 Hibernian

    Sodje 15

    A first half strike from Akpo Sodje on 15 minutes gave Aberdeen their third successive defeat in seven days

    The dons tried to get back on terms Chris Maguire hitting the post and HIBS goalkeeper Mark Brown pushing a second point blank Maguire effort onto the upright Josh Maginnis had a header hit the underside of the bar but the Edinburgh side survived late Dons pressure to end a run of three games without a win

    Hibs : Brown Hanlon Stephens Booth Towell and Stevenson Thornhill Miller Palsson Vaz Te and Sodje

    Subs: Nish for Sodje 57 Wootherspoon for Vaz Te 57 Murray for Stevenson 74

    Unused: Divis Hart Scott and Duffy

    Att: 7400







    Scottish Cup Semi Final Replay 9/4/1958



    Hibernian 2 v 1 Rangers

    Turnbull pen
    Fraser

    This Scottish Cup Semi Final replay took place the midweek after a thrilling 2-2 draw between the teams at Hampden Aitken and Preston being the HIBS heroes

    Hibs had been going through a few extra training sessions in the days before the tie and the extra effort paid off as they triumphed 2-1 and progressed to the final where they would play Clyde

    The replay goals were scored by Turnbull from the spot and Fraser but every single player that night was a hero and the support travelled back to Edinburgh singing their praises It had been 56 years since HIBS lifted that trophy and the win against Rangers gave them their first chance to do so since they lost 2-1 in the 1947 final versus Aberdeen

    Hibs: Leslie Grant McClelland Turnbull Paterson Baxter Fraser Aitken Baker Preston and Ormond

    Att: 74895






    Scottish Cup Semi Final Replay 9/4/1924

    Hibs 1 v 0 Aberdeen

    Dens Park

    Following a 0-0 draw the replay was once again staged at Dens Park Again it was a hard entertaining game with both teams opening up a bit which favoured Hibernian but Willie Harper still had to pull off some fine saves one of which showed Harper to be the best goalkeeper in Scotland The Hibees put Aberdeen under a lot of pressure which mounted as the match got older in 85 minutes Dunn’s shot hit the upright with great force It was a first time effort and easily the best shot of the match Then two minutes later Harry Ritchie went on an unstoppable run down the right wing and the Aberdeen goalkeeper could not hold his thunderbolt shot leaving Darkie Walker to ram home the winning goal

    HIBS opponents in the final were to be Airdrie a highly talented team who were only just pipped by Rangers for the championship in this season

    Hibs: Harper McGinnigle Templeton Kerr Miller Shaw Ritchie Dunn Murray Halligan and Walker

    A section of one of them caved at a Hibs game. Late 80's maybe early 90's. They tried to blame the Hibs fans at the time. Couldn't have been their fault, nothing is.

    British Championship 10/4/1886

    Scotland 4 v 1 Wales

    James McGhee and James Lundy become the first Hibernian players to represent their country

    Stop the ball now Lundy
    McGhee now take your man
    For the Harp and Hibernian
    Play up the Sons O Dan

    Saturday 10th April 1886 was a proud day for Hibernian and St Patrick’s CYMS when James McGhee and James Lundy ran out onto Hampden Park to play for Scotland against Wales. Canon Hannon, Michael Whelehan, John McFadden and numerous other commitee members were present in the Hampden stand. Also present was ex captain and committee member Michael Cavenagh who three years earlier had been selected to play for Scotland but had missed the game through injury Scotland won by four goals to one and only the crossbar prevented James McGhee from scoring James Lundy did get his name on the score sheet however with a deflection that gave Wales their only goal

    Since that day many players have represented their country ranging from Scotland England Northern Ireland and Wales to European countries as well as far flung places such as Ecuador and Trinidad and Tobago whilst playing for HIBS

    Hibs 2 v 1 Hearts

    Lavety
    Harper

    Hibs ended Hearts hopes of the League title with a stunning 2-1 win over their city rivals easing their own relegation worries ever so slightly. Barry Basher Lavety gave HIBS the lead on the hour mark substitute John Robertson equalised for Hearts with a stunning free kick and HIBS substitute Kevin Harper won the game for HIBS with a fine individual goal

    It was Manager Alex McLeish’s first Edinburgh Derby and he went on a fine run of only losing once in ten games

    Minus the services of Smith Reilly and Ormond HIBS took the field on the night of Wednesday 11th April 1951 at Shawfield against Clyde. Souness Mulkerrin and Hugh Higgins were the HIBS deputies and despite the fact that it was midweek a huge travelling support witnessed the visitors dominating throughout scoring four times in the second half without reply through Souness who got two Mulkerrin and Buchanan to lift the league championship with four games still to play

    Scottish Cup Final 11/4/1914

    Ibrox Stadium

    Hibs 0 v 0 Celtic

    Special trains carried thousands of Hibernian supporters packed like herring in a barrel to the great Irish Festival in Glasgow The HIBS and Celtic hordes mingled together in good humoured banter and God Save Ireland was sung until their lungs nearly burst as 50000 squeezed into Ibrox A real gale was blowing and the general opinion was that whoever won the toss their decision of ends would win the game Mattha Paterson won the toss and booked the wind the HIBS old tactics being grab a first half goal and hang on to it. HIBS early play was a joy to see just like the ould Hibernians in the past the defence was rock solid and crisp passing between the forwards saw them descend on the Celtic goal
    There is such a thing as tradition attached to Hibernian Football Club and this was plain to see with their green stonewall defence and their dashing helter skelter forwards The gale however spoiled the finishing from Jimmy Hendren Bobby Wilson and Sam Fleming. Celtic the best team in Scotland also played as good a game as the conditions would allow and they had some unconvincing chances. At half time there was no scoring

    In the second half with the wind now at their backs Celtic had the better chances and Willie Allan had to show his worth and once the angels hovered over him as Celtic hit the post The HIBS forwards were still combining well but were less effective but as so often happens in a Cup Final a golden opportunity presented itself for HIBS to steal the match Internationalist Willie Smith broke completely clear of the Celtic defence with one of his famous artful dodger swerving runs and the Celtic goal lay at his mercy he just could not miss Was it that he swerved it at too sharp an angle was it the windy conditions perhaps it was just the gods Willie screwed the ball beautifully across the Celtic goal but it went just past the post This was in the last minute of the match poor HIBS they had come so near to accomplishing their mission and poor Willie he was to suffer from recurring nightmares about the incident To the credit of the HIBS officials we are told Willie was never criticised nor were there any recriminations it was not in the philosophy of the football school these Irish gentlemen ran at Easter Road and gentlemen they surely were So the Final ended in no scoring a result no one would have predicted

    Scottish Championship Sunday 12/4/2015

    Hibernian 2 v 0 Hearts

    Cummings
    El Alagui

    Hibernian took the Edinburgh derby day spoils for the first time this season and kept up their claim on second spot in the Championship

    Jason Cummings close range finish rewarded HIBS early dominance and the best chances continued to fall for the hosts with Liam Fontaine hitting the bar and Farid El Alagui missing from close range

    El Alagui scored a deserved second in time added on after champions Hearts were opened up on the break

    The win ensures HIBS remain in front of Rangers on goal difference ahead of next weekends Scottish Cup semifinal with Falkirk

    It was also a first derby win for Alan Stubbs whose side had twice lost leads in the previous meetings between the sides this term

    Hibs: Oxley Forster Hanlon Fontaine Boyle McGeouch Allan Fyvie Stevenson El Alagui and Cummings

    Scottish Cup Semi Final 13/4/2013

    Hibernian 4 v 3 Falkirk
    Harris
    Doyle
    Griffiths 2

    Hibs staged one of the great Scottish Cup fightbacks to beat Falkirk and reach the final in a seven goal epic

    The Bairns swept into a three goal lead thanks to Craig Sibbalds strike Jay Fulton’s stooping header and Blair Alston’s finish

    But goals from Alex Harris after twice striking the frame Leigh Griffiths after his penalty was saved and Eoin Doyle brought extra time and Griffiths struck a beautiful 20 yard winner after having a legitimate effort disallowed as time and Falkirks energy ran out

    Hearts 1 v 2 HIBS

    Hibs took a big step towards confirming a third place finish as they came from behind to beat Hearts at Tynecastle for the first time in five years

    Hearts dominated the first half and a mistake by HIBS keeper Simon Brown let Lee Miller head home the opening goal

    Hibs brought on substitute Amadou Konte after 60 minutes and his introduction changed the game

    Hibs drew level midway through the half when Shiels nipped in on the blindside of Jason Thomson to cause panic in the Hearts box and the ball broke to OConnor who side footed the ball into the net and the visitors went ahead five minutes later when Kontes header hit the post and Shiels followed up to fire the ball home

    Hearts pressed hard for an equaliser but it was not to be

    Zitelli scored when the keeper came out and missed the ball

    Tam McManus had two chances to score late on but the keeper saved both

    Yip! Pretty scary I was there too

    First time I heard “ We are the people “ did not know what they were on about still don’t there were thousands of them all dirty and with no clothes sense speaking in this strange accent

    Was it Rae or Duncan who scored 2 v Clydebank? More likely to be Rae I'd think, as the big man was still playing up front then whereas Arthur was usually left back by that stage of his career. Also, note the contrast between the crowds at the games which saw us win promotion in 1981 and 2017 - less than 4000 at the Clydebank match! Was a hard shift watching Hibs back then...

    Scottish Cup Semi Final 16/4/2016

    Hibernian 0 v 0 Dundee United

    Hibernian won 4-2 on penalties

    HIBS debutant goalkeeper Conrad Logan saved two penalties in a shoot out to send the Edinburgh side through to the Scottish Cup Final after a 0-0 draw

    Logan playing his first senior game in 16 months saved from Dundee United’s Blair Spittal and Billy McKay HIBS striker Jason Cummings who dinked a ridiculous first half penalty over the bar made amends by scoring the winning penalty in the shoot out

    Irishman Logan produced a series of vital saves in normal and extra time The 29 year old whose last game was for Rochdale in December 2014 twice denied McKay in the first half before making further saves from John Rankin and Henri Anier in the extra period

    Agree time flies

    I thought I would just do a wee update during lockdown but I have been quite fortunate for the time of year loads of cup finals and semis and classic games and brilliant players

    I suppose more to do with our rich football heritage and history makes you proud to be a Hibby

    Hibs hosted Celtic in the league who were in turmoil off the park and sported a strange black and jade kit for the game HIBS were 2-0 up within seven minutes with goals from Keith Wright and Gareth Evans and went three up just before the interval thanks to a Darren Jackson penalty Alex Miller told the team to protect their lead second half which they managed albeit conceding a late goal to veteran striker Charlie Nicholas HIBS fans spent most of the game goading the Celtic fans not about their financial plight but how bad their team was

    Scottish League Premier Division 18/4/1998

    Dunfermline 1 v 1 Hibernian

    Welsh 95

    Hibernian under Manager Alex McLeish were on a rescue mission trying to do the unthinkable and hang on to HIBS premier league status

    Relegation threatened HIBS were running out of games and 8000 HIBS supporters crossed the River Forth to play fellow strugglers Dunfermline more in hope than anticipation

    Hibs played well but Grant Brebner so often a rock for this HIBS team had the misfortune to score an own goal HIBS pressed and pressed to get back on level terms roared on by the large travelling support but it was not until the ninety fifth minute that Brian Welsh rose above the Dunfermline defence to power home a Kevin Harper corner

    The way HIBS had played and the way they had dominated the game gave the HIBS fans belief that they could pull a season that had started so well but had turned into an unqualified disaster out of the fire

    A hard fought 0-0 draw at Parkhead the next again week would set them up for a winner takes all showdown versus Dundee United at Easter Road a fortnight later

    Special shout out for this end of season game as I have only just realised that I actually attended this match with a school chum fifty years ago and witnessed proceedings from the comfort of the Centre Stand compliments of two tickets gratis from a very kind gentleman in the name of Chris Shevlane

    Willie MacFarllane was beginning to make his mark on the team with the introduction of a young chap from Stirling Albion by the name of Erich Schaedler and it is safe to say that Willie had an eye for a player

    Jimmy ORourke scored for HIBS on eleven minutes and substitute John Murphy added a second after replacing Alex Cropley

    Hibs finished third in the league this season qualifying for the UEFA Cup which would set up a showdown with Liverpool

    Inter Cities Fairs Cup Semi Final First Leg 19/4/1961

    Hibernian 2 v 2 Roma

    Baker
    McLeod

    Hibs go to Rome next week still with a fighting chance of reaching the final of the Inter Cities Cup And fighting is the word Once again a continental team blotted their copybook at Easter Road with a display of bad temper and vicious fouling when things were going against them The bravos of the small Italian contingent were completely overwhelmed at the end by the booing of the 40000 Scottish fans

    The battle started in the second half with a deliberate back heeler from Orlando which put Davin out of the game for five minutes It was followed by the brutal felling of Scott both offences got no more than a mild remonstrance from the referee He did however eventually book Lojacano after the third of a series of particularly fierce tackles on Grant

    Hibs could not match the skill of Roma in their best passages of play but they deserve tremendous credit for their spirit in fighting back to a courageous draw They lost the second goal when Davin was off the field and sheer guts won them the equaliser

    Baker boosted his prestige in Italy with a glorious goal and many flashes of his brilliant best despite the fact that two defenders had been specially briefed to watch him Johnny McLeod was the other outstanding HIBS player but every man did his bit with Baird a fearless skipper

    The speedy Italians got in three shots before HIBS had a look in Fortunately they were all yards high or wide Schiaffino carved the openings on two occasions thus this early he looked the dangerman and Lojacano the shot happy one HIBS conceded three free kicks under pressure and Schiaffino winced with an ankle knock after a tackle from Preston

    There was no sign of HIBS settling and in fifteen minutes they fell behind to a great goal again it was the schemer Schiaffino who designed it with a pass to Lojacano from fully twenty yards the inside man unleashed a waist high shot off Simpsons fingertips and into the net

    Now we saw HIBS get cracking with Baker and McLeod raising hopes The winger sent over several five crosses and Joe though closely marked all the time got in two terrific headers spectacularly saved by Cudicini as well as a shot that scraped past the upright A Baker header followed by a Preston shot had Cudicini in real trouble and Baxter kept up the good work with a header that hit the crossbar

    What a roar went up in the first minute of the second half when HIBS dramatically equalised A honey of a goal it was McLeod wandered right across the field with the ball at his toes and slipped a short pass to Scott Scott’s cross looked a poor one until Baker raced back and collected the ball turned in a twinkling and crashed a twenty yard shot goalwards it was deflected by Raymondo out of the keepers reach but it looked a scorer in any case Another Baker dash and cross kept the Roma defence on the hop

    There was an outbreak of booing when Orlando was involved in a touchline clash with Davin The HIBS man crumpled in pain and had to be assisted off that was a burden for HIBS to carry and it was increased in the 17th minute Baird fouled Orlando just outside the angle of the penalty area Lojacano took the freekick a rocket of a shot which caught the underside of the bar and came down The referee well up with the play immediately signalled a goal though HIBS looked momentarily inclined to protest Davin came back on but his five minutes absence had been costly

    Ten minutes from time HIBS staged another thrilling comeback McLeod was fouled near the byeline he took the freekick himself and turned a cunning ball high into the far corner of the net

    HIBS:Simpson Fraser Davin Grant Easton and Baird Scott Preston Baker Baxter and McLeod



    Scottish League First Division Old 19/4/1949

    Hibernian 5 v 0 Motherwell

    Combe
    Turnbull
    Smith
    Linwood 2

    One point from their last game versus Dundee and HIBS have won the League nearest challengers Rangers have to win all three of their remaining games by twenty six goals

    HIBS scored five goals but their outfield play might have produced a dozen HIBS formula of success is brief and contains no mysterious element every man is prepared to do his full share and also that little bit extra outside his own zone of operation where necessary

    Combe and Turnbull were always there to help their defence and with their half backs in complete domination Farm Govan and Shaw need only complete deeds that were simple and straightforward

    Buchanan was masterly whether halting Motherwells progress or providing ground routed passes to the forwards Finnigan was neatness itself Howie while sometimes a little over exuberant in the tackle never looked capable of a mistake Reilly took over the left wing berth and on this display of speed and thrust will be the tenant of the position until Ormonds fitness offers competition

    From the kick off HIBS went the proper way towards accumulating goals and after Combe had failed when put through by Linwood the inside right calmly applied a finish to an inswinging Smith corner for the first goal HIBS then scored two glorious goals in fifty seconds Turnbull bored in and unleashed a ball whose progress no one could follow until it smashed against the back of the net The cheering was still at its crescendo when Linwood lobbed the ball backwards from the goal line and the in rushing Smith hit the ball on the drop past the spectating Johnston

    A Linwood left footer eight minutes after the restart deserved a better resting place than a post but as two large policemen escorted one small man from the scene of his discontent Linwood put one well inside the posts after a Reilly goal maker

    A spell of wild finishing was ended by Linwood spectacularly netting from twenty yards

    HIBS: Farm Govan and Shaw Finnigan Howie and Buchanan Smith Combe Linwood Turnbull and Reilly

    Att :20000



    After the match the Scotland Selectors announced Govan Shaw Smith Combe and Turnbull to start in the upcoming international versus Belgium Howie as a reserve

    Hibernian 1 v 2 Aberdeen

    Cuthbertson

    Around 82000 fans travelled from Aberdeen and Edinburgh to witness this match the first cup final where the trophy would be publicly presented to the winners as opposed to being presented in the dressing room The Hibernian team stepped off their coach and as Tom Wright described they sang lustily as though hurling defiance at all comers

    In the first minute a mistake by the Aberdeen goalkeeper allowed Johnny Cuthbertson to open the scoring but by all accounts Aberdeen were the better team even allowing themselves the luxury of missing a penalty to win their first Scottish Cup 2-1

    Scottish Cup Final 19/4/1924

    Hibernian 0 v 2 Airdrieonians

    The 40000 Hibernian fans at Ibrox apparently turned the stadium green but any prematch confidence was quickly dispelled when Airdrieonians scored after just two minutes Then the curse struck again one HIBS player was already limping and disastrously HIBS star player and centre forward Jimmy Dunn broke down injured Airdrieonians scored another just before half time to take a well deserved two goal lead As HIBS tried to get back into the match they were awarded a penalty As the ball was placed on the spot and Hibernian player Harry Ritchie got ready to take the kick the referee ran over to his linesman and amazingly reversed his decision and awarded a goal kick instead

    Airdrieonians held on to win the Scottish Cup for the only time in their history

    Scottish Championship 20/4/2016

    Hibernian 3 v 2 The Rangers

    This dress rehearsal for the 2016 Scottish Cup Final could not have gone any better from a HIBS point of view although somewhat aided and abetted by a few uncharacteristic mistakes from Champions The Rangers

    In five minutes Jason Cummings fired home after a Tavernier throwin landed at his feet HIBS looked pumped up for this and Stokes added a second when Foderingham fumbled a shot cum cross into his own net A mistake by Mark Oxley allowed Jason Holt to pull one back for The Rangers before Niklas Gunnarsson was allowed to pick his spot when the ball fell kindly to him from a second half corner

    Jimmy Jimmy ORourke was the inspiration for this hard fought victory away to Falkirk at Brockville

    He set up the opener for Colin Stein in 8 minutes John Markie equalised for Falkirk on the half hour mark before Jimmy ORourke riflled home a peach of a thirty yarder on 33 minutes Jimmy ORourke then got hauled down in the box by John Lambie and the penalty king Joe Davis duly obliged to put HIBS 3-1 up on 56 minutes before Johnny Graham pulled one back for Falkirk on 76 minutes

    Scottish League Division One Old 20/4/1953

    Hibernian 2 v 1 East Fife

    Johnstone
    Ormond

    If any game sums up being a HIBS supporter this is it

    HIBS were going head to head with Rangers and East Fife for the title with only three games to go To stand any chance of retaining the title they had to win their last remaining three games at home and hope that someone else slips up The first game brought East Fife to Easter Road for a match that if won by either side would certainly have an effect on the title hopes of the other

    Although a huge crowd played its part on roaring HIBS on the occasion was clearly having an effect on both sides as the game was littered with fouls which meant that neither outfit could settle into their normal game The HIBS defenders had decided to clear their lines with long punts down the park playing right into the hands of the tall East Fife defence and there reached a stage where Lawrie Reilly could clearly be heard to be shouting to his team mates to keep the ball low It seemed to work as a flowing 13 th minute move saw Howie feed Turnbull who in turn laid the ball in front of Johnstone and the little inside right scampered through to hit the ball past Curran to make it 1-0 Eleven minutes later East Fife were level when Matthews ran down the right wing and crossed for Jimmy Bonthrone to head past Younger The Methil side had brought a good support and their fans showed their delight with loud cheers By the time the half time whistle sounded HIBS had scored three more goals but each had been disallowed for offside much to the disgust of fans and players

    Eleven minutes into the second half Smith sent over a cross at about knee height and Ormond threw himself full length to head the ball in at the back post This time there was no offside so HIBS were 2-1 up and that was how it finished although there was a scare in the last minute when Fleming hit Youngers crossbar with a header

    HIBS won their remaining two home games beating Third Lanark 7-1 and Raith Rovers 4-1 but sadly even although they finished on the same number of points as Rangers 43 and with a superior goal difference 42:41 they lost the title on an inferior goal average 1.82 to 2.05

    Say what you want about Neil Lennon but he always seemed to have the Indian sign over Celtic at HIBS

    Celtic rolled up looking for a win to seal another Championship but their gas was put on a peep when Jamie MacLaren tapped home a Lewis Stevenson cross from close range Vykintas Slivka stooped to head home a low Florian Kamberi cross before Odsonne Edouard scored a late consolation for Celtic

    The final home game of the season fell to be played on Monday 21st April 1958 and it would bring Rangers to Easter Road on what was a hugely emotional night for everyone connected with Hibernian Football Club Lawrie Reilly would pull on the green and white jersey for the last time and it was perhaps fitting that Rangers would provide the opposition given the number of times Lawrie had faced and tormented their defence in years gone by as the Glasgow club battled HIBS for the top prizes on offer in Scotland

    HIBS won this last home game winning 3-1 with the retiring Rellly scoring along with Baxter and Aitken

    Hibs fulfilled an obligation to play a friendly against Nithsdale Wanderers and they duly obliged by thrashing their hosts but this game would be significant in being the first time the famous forward line of Smith Johnstone Reilly Turnbull and Ormond would play together and little would any of the spectators realise that this forward line would go on to dominate Scottish football in the years to come

    The Scottish Cup Semi Final 22/4/2017

    Hibernian 2 v 3 Aberdeen

    Holt
    McGeouch

    Where to begin? If any game sums up Neil Lennons tenure at HIBS it is this one Wrong team and wrong tactics The ball gets played back to John McGinn from kick off he looks to take the ball for a run gets ambushed by 2-3 Aberdeen players Bartley wins the ball back plays it back to MacGregor who is slack with a pass to Ambrose Rooney latches onto it through on goal 1-0 Aberdeen

    Hibs struggled to gain any foothold in the match and the most noticeable thing was that the ball was not sticking up front and just kept coming back Fraser Fyvie picked up a booking wide on the right giving away a free kick Christie lined up the free kick and went straight for goal whipping the ball in with pace and beating Rocky at his near post

    Neil Lennon changed things bringing on 36 year old Grant Holt for the already booked Fraser Fyvie Suddenly the ball started to stick upfront and the whole dynamic of the game changed Holt pulling a goal back almost immediately with a header from a Boyle cross

    Into the second half and HIBS drew level with a goal of real quality Dylan McGeouch slotting home after a superb one two with Holt but sadly for HIBS he had to limp off after celebrating his counter too much

    As so often happens in Cup ties one stroke of luck turned the game Aberdeen’s way Hayes did well to make space for a shot from long range and the ball appeared to pose no threat to Marcianos goal until it took an unfortunate wicked deflection off MacGregors leg and trundled into the net

    Hibs had one last throw of the dice as they tried to hang on to the cup Rocky came up for a stoppage time corner and headed towards goal but his counterpart Joe Lewis held onto the ball to ensure Aberdeen progressed to the final

    Hibs : Rocky Gray McGregor Ambrose Stevenson Bartley Fyvie Boyle McGeouch McGinn Cummings

    Scott Robertson guided in an early opener Myles Hippolyte levelled with a superb volley past Mark Oxley and Jason Cummings restored HIBS lead forcing the ball home at the second attempt following a scramble in the box

    Just before half time Cole of Livvy saw red after picking up a second yellow

    Things were looking ominous for Livvy when HIBS were awarded a penalty kick into the second half but goalkeeper Jamieson saved McGeouchs effort

    Hibs were not to be denied for too long however and in the 82nd minute substitute Dominic Malonga in typical fashion latched onto Fraser Fyvies long ball to dribble his way through the Livvy defence to make it 3-1

    Hibernian 2 v 1 Hearts

    Riordan
    Benji


    Abdessalam Benjelloun came off the bench to score the winner for Hibernian as they dented Hearts hopes of Champions League qualification

    Following a typically frantic start it was the home side who took the lead after 14 minutes Jay Shields robbed Paul Hartley in midfield and fed Sproule on the right The Irishman drove his cross to the back post where Derek Riordan took a touch before brilliantly rifling his right footed shot past Craig Gordon into the far corner of the net

    HIBS held onto their lead until a few seconds before half time Bednar chased a speculative long ball into the box which was being shepherded by Gary Caldwell back to Zibi Malkowski however the ball slipped from the goalkeepers grasp allowing Bednar the easiest of chances to roll the ball into the empty net

    This goal seemed to galvanise Hearts at the start of the second half with Bednar twice hitting the ball just wide of the post and Aguiar and Tall also going close to giving Hearts the lead

    This inspired HIBS Manager Tony Mowbray to change things and introduced Scott Brown Paul Dalglish and Benji to the proceedings the latter two combining to allow the Moroccan to fire home the winner from 16 yards on the 78th minute

    Benji was so delighted at scoring his first goal for the club that even though it came at the Famous Five end he insisted in celebrating it in front of the South Stand which housed the baying Jambo hordes despite being held back by a somewhat relieved Zibi and getting booked for his trouble

    Scottish League SPL 23/4/2005

    Hibernian 2 v 2 Hearts

    OConnor
    Riordan

    A late goal from defender Andy Webster earned Hearts a share of the spoils in an entertaining Edinburgh derby

    Hibs went in front early when striker Garry OConnor swept home a low Scott Brown cross from close range But Hearts hit back with Lee Miller crashing in a powerful strike after good work from Mark Burchill Hibs regained the lead in the second half when Derek Riordan thundered in a wonderful shot but Webster nodded the ball in to equalise on 88 minutes

    The home side stay third in the table but Aberdeen who won at Motherwell have closed the gap to two points in the race for a UEFA Cup place Hearts remain eight points behind their city rivals and will find it hard to make up ground in the four remaining games

    HIBS looked eager to make amends after last weeks surprise loss to Livingston and started the game in positive fashion Hearts were pinned back and found themselves trailing after just eight minutes A Riordan corner was cleared as far as Scott Brown on the edge of the penalty area and the midfielder quickly slipped the ball back between Hearts defenders allowing OConnor to slide in and force the ball into the net

    The visitors came close to an equaliser soon after when Burchill headed a Paul Hartley freekick against the base of the post but Miller had the ball in the net on 23 minutes after a neat flick from Burchill was met by the striker and lashed high into the net from a tight angle Webster almost put his side in front a minute later but his header was well saved by Simon Brown HIBS appeared stunned by the Hearts comeback and completely lost their way giving the ball away cheaply and losing out in every midfield challenge

    Tony Mowbrays side survived a sticky spell and thought they had regained the lead three minutes before halftime when Gary Caldwell rose to meet a Derek Riordan corner The Scotland defenders header was thumped clear by a Hearts player with the home team protesting that the ball had crossed the line

    Striker Amadou Konte making his first start for HIBS did well to create space for a shot early in the second half but his poked effort was tipped wide by Gordon From the resulting corner Konte diverted in a Dean Shiels shot but the linesman’s flag cut short the home fans celebrations Gordon then had to make another great save to stop Riordans powerful shot across goal However the Scotland keeper had no answer to Riordans next effort The young forward cut in from the left flank after 63 minutes and thundered the ball inside the far post from the edge of the penalty area Riordan created an almost identical chance minutes later but this time Gordon was able to stop the shot

    HIBS had a lucky escape when keeper Brown put the ball down without noticing Miller behind him The Hearts forward nipped in to steal the ball and Brown appeared to impede his opponent who had embarrassed him however Mike McCurry did not see any infringement and the ball was cleared

    Hibs were punished for not making the most of their second half chances when a Hartley free kick was forced home by Webster on 88 minutes

    Hibs just had four League games remaining before the squad could sit back and enjoy the 1966 World Cup the first of these games was away to St Johnstone at Muirton Park with Bob Shankly looking for his troops to do the double over the Perth saints That feat was duly achieved when goals from Stein Scott and Stevenson earned a 3-1 victory a Richmond penalty giving the saints their goal in the first minute of the game

    The highlight of the game however was the performance of young Colin Stein who not only scored one but laid on the other two Shankly described Jim Scott’s goal after brilliant lead up play by Stein as one of the best he had ever witnessed
