Match Recap

Ten-man Hibernian edged out Kilmarnock on penalties to book a Scottish League Cup semi-final against holders Celtic.

The win, sealed when Chris Maxwell saved Niko Hamalainen's sudden-death spot kick, eased the pressure on heach coach Paul Heckingbottom and earned embattled Hibs' second semi-final in the competition three years. 

Hibs created few chances during the 120 minutes and lost Ryan Porteous to an extra-time red card, but they prevailed 5-4 in the shoot-out after the tie ended goalless.

Dom Thomas had struck the bar for Kilmarnock during extra time and Stephen O'Donnell, Stuart Findlay and Eamonn Brophy all squandered big chances for Angelo Alessio's men.

Comments

Angelo Alessio: “I think it is the worst way to lose a game. It is football and we accept the result but it’s hugely disappointing, “The game for the most part was balanced, the second-half was a bit better as we created a few chances to score a goal.  At the end of extra time the penalties were what they were. Again, we accept the result and are hugely disappointed. We have another big game on Saturday, and we go again at the weekend,” he continued. I think the team, every player, play 100% every game. We have two days to prepare for the game against Ross County. 12O minutes under our belt and we must now go back to training and restart. All our attention is now on Ross County.”
