Pick that one night! They have a goal back! Paul Heffernan with the
goal! How about that for a finish? Game set and match for Dundee
Last night in our first brush with the quarter-finals we saw how
Celtic and Falkirk claim their places. Tonight we will painting
the whole picture for you and show what happened in the Dundee derby
and the Action Pack Meeting of Kilmarnock and Hibernian. I don't
that many of us expected a lot of goals at Rugby Park today, but that
with the Permian arriving on the scene six years later, but this is
just the 7th time they have gone head-to-head in the Scottish Cup.
Beaded meek in last season's 5th round. They beat Aberdeen in the
last round. They beat Hearts in round four. Kris Boyd remains on
the bench. The team is the same DUP 1 -- is the same one that started
against Hibernian in the league. Scott Robertson won the Scottish
Cup with Dundee United in 2010. Leigh Griffiths has scored three
against Kilmarnock this season, and monsters 19 for the campaign. Well,
he had an injury ravaged her to the campaign, but he has hit the ground
running. 11 goals this season so far. Up against Leigh Griffiths, he
has 19. The referee is 31 year-olds John Beaton. This promises to be a
Fenlon, over what happened in their Cup last year. Kenny Shiels has
already won silverware. So, a Hibernian free kick. Matt Done has
that wasn't too far away. It is the first corner for Hibernian. Sissoko
Doswell, gets his head on the ball, the quarter-finals for Hibernian,
seldom misses, and he doesn't miss this one either! That is his 20th
of the season. That is a goal at that absolutely nothing. At
clearance by Jeroen Tesslaar, headed back, and he is there? Leigh
Griffiths. Absolutely brilliant finish. Hibernian and Pat Fenlon
are delighted. He has that speed and composure. Where would they be
without him? Leigh Griffiths, nicknamed sparky, has sparked
Dayton who slams it past Ben Williams. James Dayton Thomsen his
second of the season. One a reply from the home side! Taken by
William Gross, because this was a fantastic effort. The man who is on
his stones, James Dayton. It is all level! It is came on at Rugby Park!
is all about the mistake from Cissy go. Matt Done knocks home for
Hibernian his first for the club. Cammy Bell has been yellow-carded.
I am not sure that is something he said or not. That is an absolute
nightmare. Poor touch. All he has to do is knock the ball into the
empty net. That is what you call self-inflicted. From no pressure at
all, you give the goal away and they have shot themselves in the
the way past. How unlucky is Paul Heffernan? That is great skill to
create the room. That is so unlucky. Six inches wide of the post. Just
Eventful, to say the least. Leigh Griffiths gave Hibernian the lead
after 15 minutes. James Dayton equalised. Then a terrible mistake
from Sissoko set up Matt Done to restore the Hibernian advantage.
something out of it. Hibernian were looking for a free kick just
outside the box but they didn't get it. Leigh Griffiths refused to give
it up. How he gets through there, I it down. It is a really awkward
ball for him. But he has the ability to do that. He times his
a penalty! It is at push and Kilmarnock have a way back in.
not sure that is the referee or the linesman that gives this decision.
It is that fantastic effort and a great save by Ben Williams. Lewis
Stevenson must have put his hands on his back. There is so little
contact their to make a huge decision like that. The linesman is
When for power and that a dog. It is 2-2. -- and it paid off.
Williams has saved a lot of spot- kicks this season, but Paul
Heffernan goes straight and with power and it is in the back of the
the grid at, but he turns it in anyway! Absolutely incredible.
Straight down the middle. Sissoko wasn't as fast as leave -- as Leigh
Griffiths. He refused to give up and he eventually got his reward.
It is incredible the number of times he comes up with the goods.
Strip ball, get some sort of cross the centre back. Sissoko turned
away, the goalkeeper can get back. Leigh Griffiths has been a wonder
for Hibernian this season and yet again he produces on the biggest
occasion. I absolutely incredible from Leigh Griffiths who has scored
more than half of the goals for Hibernian this season. That is
for Ross Barbour. For the challenge on Griffiths. You have to say that
was a definite goalscoring opportunity in. I think the referee
was left with no option. Young Ross Barbour is off. Leigh Griffiths
will have a chance with this free if you lift your arm mind that -- a
kick. And the man of the season puts them into the last four. A
hat-trick from Leigh Griffiths! Seldom has a player made such an
impact as that man has this season on Hibernian. Some players panic.
He makes his mind up and picks his side and even if the goalkeeper
guesses right, you will not get near that. It was a brilliant
penalty. There was no chance for Cammy Bell. I think Leigh Griffiths
going off. The last touch of the game was to knock it into the net
for his hat-trick. It has been the Griffiths show again. A little bit
further down redemption road. His team back into the semi-finals of
the Scottish Cup. As he did last season. They have to look at that
man again, Leigh Griffiths, a hat- trick for him. It finishes
trick for him. It finishes Kilmarnock 2, Hibernian 4.
At no fantastic individual performance from you -- and a
fantastic. It is my first hat-trick in professional football. It was
nice to get the win and get back to Hampden. It has been a great season.
Where does today rang? It is up with the best, to score a hat-trick
and get into the quarter-final -- to get it in the quarter-final.
am disappointed, the way we would beat. If you cannot defend long
balls you cannot play at this level. Players doing really well and it
was one of those days. For the players and supporters and
everybody at the club, it was a great game and we showed great
character. We conceded the penalty. I would like to see it again.
gifted them girls. I do not know whether I will sleep. The more you
look at it, the worse it gets, straight balls. I have not seen us
defend as poorly as that. They have long-term pain because it
is so long since they have won the tournament. Leigh Griffiths. He was
immense. Leigh Griffiths was superb. It is going to be tough, there are
tough teams in there. No disrespect to Falkirk, I think her Bernie and
would like to draw them. -- Hibernian. It is a good opportunity
if they get the right draw. Their defending made a contribution to
have this went today. Definitely. He said he did not know why he
would sleep. They did not have to work hard for the girls. Leigh
Griffiths scoring his first Griffiths scoring his first
professional hat-trick and he will not score an easier one. With this
goal, he did it well, getting it under control. But as the ball is
played up the park, he has to give cover to his centre back and he
switches off. You could look at Sissoko, but you have to look at
Griffiths and the positive. It is a great finish from James Dayton and
a great strike. And a fine save. That is not a bad finish. You get
told to following and maybe he has not an James Dayton house. It was a
penalty box nightmare that handed Hibernian the second goal.
would think after the Aberdeen game, Cammy Bell, he might not have... It
was a terrible pass back. Against Aberdeen, when it should have been
a penalty, you would think he would learn. Horrific. There are players
on him. It was a catalogue of errors. Horrific defending. It is
difficult to know who to blame most. It's is close to half-time and 1-1.
They want to play that sort of football but you do not throw it
out at that stage of the game. You kick the ball up the park and go
from there. Maybe go into half-time at 1-1 rather than conceding.
was horrific for Kilmarnock. If it had finished 2-2, house or would
they have felt about this penalty? There is not a lot of contact. When
he realises he is not getting it, down he goes. It is a good save. He
is on his toes. He has asked the question of the officials. He got
one for the team. It is a soft penalty. As a striker... And with
Williams saving, it was emphatic. He blasted it and gave him no
chance. Here is another long ball down the
middle. Griffiths. He spins in behind him. He let it bounce. It is
a cardinal sin as a defender. The reaction of Sissoko. He does not
sensed danger. He turned away. You have to credit Griffiths for
reacting the way he did. To hire up, too wide. Griffiths, brilliant. His
pace and reaction. But he gets to high art. He let it drop. He does
not react. Where do you start? There was so much. They will sit
there are Monday having a meeting that will take three hours. Maybe
he will just forget about it. Sissoko must learn. This sequence
of events that led to the goal that finally killed off Kilmarnock. The
red card. It had to be for Ross Barbour. I played against Leigh
Griffiths. He is a lone striker. He gets position between the centre-
backs. It was a good ball forward. The referee made the right to call.
You have to be braver than that. It is above his face. The man in form,
he was electric all day, giving them problems behind and showing
composure when he gets there and when he gets the chance of the hat-
trick. It is a perfect penalty. Nobody would say that. I like to
see Leigh Griffiths scoring the way he did. Unbelievable strikes the
season, longer-range efforts and during the week, a little flick.
And inside the box, reactions. He will keep on scoring goals until
the end of the season. 22 so far. You played against him defensively
for Dundee United, how far could he go? I am surprised that they have
met him come up on loan. They obviously need to score goals,
walls, and he could have been a man to keep them in the Championship.
He likes to score the long-range shots. The goal strikers like to
score. My last time there was a Dundee derby in the Scottish Cup,
Billy Dodds played and scored. It was back in 1991. United cross the
road today for another road today for another

Dundee players dropped to their knees. The United players salute
the victory. Disappointment for John Bryant. For the second
consecutive time at these sites have been drawn together in a
Scottish Cup tie, it is the men from Tannadice who progress. Dundee
United just had that little bit I thought it was very frantic and
many times not pretty on the eye. All credit to Dundee, they cost us
a lot of problems, particularly in the first half. People can say Hugh
did not defend the free kick well, but it shouldn't have been a free
kick. There was nothing in the game. In the first half both games at
opportunities. And the second at that was pretty even. We're just
disappointed because of the officials do your job then we would
have a replay at Tannadice. Dundee were probing all game. It could
possession and did well but I thought our defence was solid.
Radoslaw Cierzniak made a lot of good saves but overall the defence
was very good. He did you enjoy the game? Not particularly common know.
It wasn't a great game of football to be involved in. The atmosphere
was fantastic but it wasn't the great game of football to watch. I
don't think our performance was up to much but we managed to get the
win and we're in the next round. D'you have sympathy for Dundee?
they give everything they had. Thankfully for us we had a couple
of good goals. If Dundee player like that to the end of the season,
there will pick up a few results. They clearly feel that it shouldn't
here. What do you reckon? I didn't think it was over the line, but
having seen its, it looks over the line. I think they will probably
feel hard done by. They still have to defend the free kick a bit
better. Rab Douglas probably had to do better if he was coming out
there. But you have to give credit to the ball in. The that was a big
John Brown will realise that his team have got to defended better.
Rab Douglas should have come earlier and make his mind up. It
wasn't great defending from Dundee. Things like that can change games.
There was a lot to like about the technique, they were positive. Jim
McAllister didn't even have to take a touch. Maybe Armstrong could have
That was the best move of the match by Dundee. Stuart Armstrong will
probably look at that and think you should have made his -- should have
there. Maybe the two defenders could have reacted better, but Gary
Mackay Steven has so much speed. Rab Douglas will probably be in the
dressing room tonight and say, I could have done better on both
those goals, I wasn't at their best today. Dundee United. At their best,
but the quality and technique that they should from the free kick and
for that goal really shone through. A lot of attention is Sharratt on
Gary Mackay Steven and yourself. What do you think about Stuart
Armstrong? He seems to be emerging at the moment. A lot of attention
goes on Johnny Russell and Gary Mackay Steven because of his
ability to run at the ball. I think Stuart Armstrong is a fantastic
talent and can go all the way. For the second goal, he had a lot to do.
The weight of the past for the goal And the Orange were the are by
recent weeks. They brush the shocked their. They do things nice
and simple, then it works, but sometimes it is better just playing
the pasta you see. You can see it on this occasion, just played the
ball wide left again. Today I thought they had a lot of
possession and kept the ball well in good areas. Probably rush in the
final pass. Sometimes, when you're down there and up against it, you
tend to do that. You may be make the wrong decision. If they play
like they have to day with a bit of quality in the final third, they

can come off you. You have to can come off you. You have to

hit the target but he is leaning back. How good was the strike from
Blair Alston? It was cracking. They think they have clears the danger.
Technically, it is a fantastic strike. Knee over the ball. He
keeps it down. He looked to be in an awkward position. He controls it
brilliantly. The two at the edge of the box do not do too much wrong.

eye on the Scottish Cup. James Forrest did well with the first
ball. Joe Ledley finished off well with a header. And the second into

They have. We keep going on about them but something turns up. Every

get experience and a solid back four... I would not rule them out.
A when you look at the league table, Ross County and in the best, in
with a right chance. Lots of teams will be thinking that. They have a
game in hand on other teams and will look to push on for top six.
It is getting down to the business end where we need to pick up three
points. We have been saying we need to win games and not draw games. We
have drawn the last two. It has knocked us for six. The next four
games, they are massive for us. We start on Saturday at St Mary and

moment of the day. Leaving defending aside, this boy today
showed composure, desire, willingness to run and reaction,
and so although it looks a scrappy goal, to run over the top and shows
strength and realise what is roundabout and showed that reaction,
it has been his day. Your moment of the day? Pub in the final whistle.
The relief of getting through after a scrappy game -- probably the
final whistle! What are you thinking about the draw coming up?
It is a one-off game. We will take who we get. We will see what
happens. Celtic will be the favourites. They have the biggest
squad. If we get them in the semi- final, we will fancy ourselves on a
one-off game that we can beat them. You have recent memories of winning,

we have great memories. We have younger boys coming through the

felt that day. It would be a mistake to underestimate the
underdogs? Celtic have proven that before with Ross County. We have to
remind them about that. Falkirk will once Dundee United or
