:01:13.:01:16.

Pick that one night! They have a goal back! Paul Heffernan with the

:01:16.:01:26.
:01:26.:01:28.

goal! How about that for a finish? Game set and match for Dundee

:01:28.:01:38.

Last night in our first brush with the quarter-finals we saw how

:01:38.:01:42.

Celtic and Falkirk claim their places. Tonight we will painting

:01:42.:01:46.

the whole picture for you and show what happened in the Dundee derby

:01:46.:01:54.

and the Action Pack Meeting of Kilmarnock and Hibernian. I don't

:01:54.:01:58.

that many of us expected a lot of goals at Rugby Park today, but that

:01:58.:02:08.
:02:08.:02:20.

with the Permian arriving on the scene six years later, but this is

:02:20.:02:25.

just the 7th time they have gone head-to-head in the Scottish Cup.

:02:25.:02:32.

Beaded meek in last season's 5th round. They beat Aberdeen in the

:02:32.:02:40.

last round. They beat Hearts in round four. Kris Boyd remains on

:02:40.:02:47.

the bench. The team is the same DUP 1 -- is the same one that started

:02:47.:02:57.
:02:57.:02:57.

against Hibernian in the league. Scott Robertson won the Scottish

:02:57.:03:02.

Cup with Dundee United in 2010. Leigh Griffiths has scored three

:03:02.:03:08.

against Kilmarnock this season, and monsters 19 for the campaign. Well,

:03:08.:03:13.

he had an injury ravaged her to the campaign, but he has hit the ground

:03:13.:03:19.

running. 11 goals this season so far. Up against Leigh Griffiths, he

:03:19.:03:29.
:03:29.:03:35.

has 19. The referee is 31 year-olds John Beaton. This promises to be a

:03:35.:03:45.
:03:45.:03:58.

Fenlon, over what happened in their Cup last year. Kenny Shiels has

:03:58.:04:08.
:04:08.:04:11.

already won silverware. So, a Hibernian free kick. Matt Done has

:04:11.:04:21.
:04:21.:04:34.

that wasn't too far away. It is the first corner for Hibernian. Sissoko

:04:34.:04:44.
:04:44.:04:54.

Doswell, gets his head on the ball, the quarter-finals for Hibernian,

:04:54.:05:04.
:05:04.:05:34.

seldom misses, and he doesn't miss this one either! That is his 20th

:05:34.:05:41.

of the season. That is a goal at that absolutely nothing. At

:05:41.:05:46.

clearance by Jeroen Tesslaar, headed back, and he is there? Leigh

:05:46.:05:56.
:05:56.:05:57.

Griffiths. Absolutely brilliant finish. Hibernian and Pat Fenlon

:05:57.:06:06.

are delighted. He has that speed and composure. Where would they be

:06:06.:06:12.

without him? Leigh Griffiths, nicknamed sparky, has sparked

:06:12.:06:22.
:06:22.:06:47.

Dayton who slams it past Ben Williams. James Dayton Thomsen his

:06:48.:06:54.

second of the season. One a reply from the home side! Taken by

:06:54.:07:01.

William Gross, because this was a fantastic effort. The man who is on

:07:01.:07:11.
:07:11.:07:12.

his stones, James Dayton. It is all level! It is came on at Rugby Park!

:07:12.:07:22.
:07:22.:07:48.

is all about the mistake from Cissy go. Matt Done knocks home for

:07:48.:07:58.
:07:58.:08:00.

Hibernian his first for the club. Cammy Bell has been yellow-carded.

:08:00.:08:05.

I am not sure that is something he said or not. That is an absolute

:08:05.:08:15.

nightmare. Poor touch. All he has to do is knock the ball into the

:08:15.:08:22.

empty net. That is what you call self-inflicted. From no pressure at

:08:22.:08:25.

all, you give the goal away and they have shot themselves in the

:08:25.:08:35.
:08:35.:08:51.

the way past. How unlucky is Paul Heffernan? That is great skill to

:08:51.:08:58.

create the room. That is so unlucky. Six inches wide of the post. Just

:08:58.:09:08.
:09:08.:09:19.

Eventful, to say the least. Leigh Griffiths gave Hibernian the lead

:09:19.:09:27.

after 15 minutes. James Dayton equalised. Then a terrible mistake

:09:27.:09:36.

from Sissoko set up Matt Done to restore the Hibernian advantage.

:09:36.:09:46.
:09:46.:10:20.

something out of it. Hibernian were looking for a free kick just

:10:20.:10:25.

outside the box but they didn't get it. Leigh Griffiths refused to give

:10:25.:10:35.
:10:35.:10:47.

it up. How he gets through there, I it down. It is a really awkward

:10:47.:10:54.

ball for him. But he has the ability to do that. He times his

:10:54.:11:04.
:11:04.:11:17.

a penalty! It is at push and Kilmarnock have a way back in.

:11:17.:11:24.

not sure that is the referee or the linesman that gives this decision.

:11:24.:11:33.

It is that fantastic effort and a great save by Ben Williams. Lewis

:11:33.:11:38.

Stevenson must have put his hands on his back. There is so little

:11:38.:11:42.

contact their to make a huge decision like that. The linesman is

:11:42.:11:52.
:11:52.:12:14.

When for power and that a dog. It is 2-2. -- and it paid off.

:12:14.:12:18.

Williams has saved a lot of spot- kicks this season, but Paul

:12:18.:12:22.

Heffernan goes straight and with power and it is in the back of the

:12:22.:12:32.
:12:32.:12:59.

the grid at, but he turns it in anyway! Absolutely incredible.

:12:59.:13:09.
:13:09.:13:10.

Straight down the middle. Sissoko wasn't as fast as leave -- as Leigh

:13:10.:13:15.

Griffiths. He refused to give up and he eventually got his reward.

:13:15.:13:21.

It is incredible the number of times he comes up with the goods.

:13:21.:13:29.

Strip ball, get some sort of cross the centre back. Sissoko turned

:13:29.:13:36.

away, the goalkeeper can get back. Leigh Griffiths has been a wonder

:13:36.:13:39.

for Hibernian this season and yet again he produces on the biggest

:13:39.:13:45.

occasion. I absolutely incredible from Leigh Griffiths who has scored

:13:45.:13:49.

more than half of the goals for Hibernian this season. That is

:13:49.:13:59.
:13:59.:14:24.

for Ross Barbour. For the challenge on Griffiths. You have to say that

:14:24.:14:29.

was a definite goalscoring opportunity in. I think the referee

:14:29.:14:35.

was left with no option. Young Ross Barbour is off. Leigh Griffiths

:14:35.:14:45.
:14:45.:15:11.

will have a chance with this free if you lift your arm mind that -- a

:15:11.:15:19.

kick. And the man of the season puts them into the last four. A

:15:19.:15:24.

hat-trick from Leigh Griffiths! Seldom has a player made such an

:15:24.:15:32.

impact as that man has this season on Hibernian. Some players panic.

:15:32.:15:37.

He makes his mind up and picks his side and even if the goalkeeper

:15:37.:15:42.

guesses right, you will not get near that. It was a brilliant

:15:42.:15:52.
:15:52.:15:55.

penalty. There was no chance for Cammy Bell. I think Leigh Griffiths

:15:55.:15:59.

going off. The last touch of the game was to knock it into the net

:15:59.:16:09.
:16:09.:16:18.

for his hat-trick. It has been the Griffiths show again. A little bit

:16:18.:16:23.

further down redemption road. His team back into the semi-finals of

:16:23.:16:28.

the Scottish Cup. As he did last season. They have to look at that

:16:28.:16:38.
:16:38.:16:39.

man again, Leigh Griffiths, a hat- trick for him. It finishes

:16:39.:16:44.

trick for him. It finishes Kilmarnock 2, Hibernian 4.

:16:44.:16:51.

At no fantastic individual performance from you -- and a

:16:51.:16:55.

fantastic. It is my first hat-trick in professional football. It was

:16:56.:17:01.

nice to get the win and get back to Hampden. It has been a great season.

:17:01.:17:07.

Where does today rang? It is up with the best, to score a hat-trick

:17:07.:17:17.
:17:17.:17:18.

and get into the quarter-final -- to get it in the quarter-final.

:17:18.:17:23.

am disappointed, the way we would beat. If you cannot defend long

:17:23.:17:28.

balls you cannot play at this level. Players doing really well and it

:17:28.:17:34.

was one of those days. For the players and supporters and

:17:34.:17:38.

everybody at the club, it was a great game and we showed great

:17:38.:17:48.
:17:48.:17:52.

character. We conceded the penalty. I would like to see it again.

:17:52.:17:56.

gifted them girls. I do not know whether I will sleep. The more you

:17:56.:18:04.

look at it, the worse it gets, straight balls. I have not seen us

:18:04.:18:11.

defend as poorly as that. They have long-term pain because it

:18:11.:18:18.

is so long since they have won the tournament. Leigh Griffiths. He was

:18:18.:18:25.

immense. Leigh Griffiths was superb. It is going to be tough, there are

:18:25.:18:32.

tough teams in there. No disrespect to Falkirk, I think her Bernie and

:18:32.:18:40.

would like to draw them. -- Hibernian. It is a good opportunity

:18:40.:18:49.

if they get the right draw. Their defending made a contribution to

:18:49.:18:57.

have this went today. Definitely. He said he did not know why he

:18:57.:19:02.

would sleep. They did not have to work hard for the girls. Leigh

:19:02.:19:05.

Griffiths scoring his first Griffiths scoring his first

:19:05.:19:08.

professional hat-trick and he will not score an easier one. With this

:19:08.:19:14.

goal, he did it well, getting it under control. But as the ball is

:19:14.:19:20.

played up the park, he has to give cover to his centre back and he

:19:20.:19:25.

switches off. You could look at Sissoko, but you have to look at

:19:25.:19:34.

Griffiths and the positive. It is a great finish from James Dayton and

:19:34.:19:44.

a great strike. And a fine save. That is not a bad finish. You get

:19:44.:19:50.

told to following and maybe he has not an James Dayton house. It was a

:19:50.:19:56.

penalty box nightmare that handed Hibernian the second goal.

:19:56.:20:04.

would think after the Aberdeen game, Cammy Bell, he might not have... It

:20:04.:20:09.

was a terrible pass back. Against Aberdeen, when it should have been

:20:09.:20:16.

a penalty, you would think he would learn. Horrific. There are players

:20:16.:20:25.

on him. It was a catalogue of errors. Horrific defending. It is

:20:25.:20:32.

difficult to know who to blame most. It's is close to half-time and 1-1.

:20:32.:20:36.

They want to play that sort of football but you do not throw it

:20:36.:20:42.

out at that stage of the game. You kick the ball up the park and go

:20:42.:20:50.

from there. Maybe go into half-time at 1-1 rather than conceding.

:20:50.:20:57.

was horrific for Kilmarnock. If it had finished 2-2, house or would

:20:57.:21:07.
:21:07.:21:15.

they have felt about this penalty? There is not a lot of contact. When

:21:15.:21:22.

he realises he is not getting it, down he goes. It is a good save. He

:21:22.:21:28.

is on his toes. He has asked the question of the officials. He got

:21:28.:21:36.

one for the team. It is a soft penalty. As a striker... And with

:21:36.:21:42.

Williams saving, it was emphatic. He blasted it and gave him no

:21:42.:21:50.

chance. Here is another long ball down the

:21:50.:22:00.
:22:00.:22:04.

middle. Griffiths. He spins in behind him. He let it bounce. It is

:22:04.:22:14.
:22:14.:22:15.

a cardinal sin as a defender. The reaction of Sissoko. He does not

:22:15.:22:21.

sensed danger. He turned away. You have to credit Griffiths for

:22:21.:22:31.
:22:31.:22:31.

reacting the way he did. To hire up, too wide. Griffiths, brilliant. His

:22:31.:22:38.

pace and reaction. But he gets to high art. He let it drop. He does

:22:38.:22:48.
:22:48.:22:49.

not react. Where do you start? There was so much. They will sit

:22:49.:22:53.

there are Monday having a meeting that will take three hours. Maybe

:22:53.:22:58.

he will just forget about it. Sissoko must learn. This sequence

:22:58.:23:04.

of events that led to the goal that finally killed off Kilmarnock. The

:23:04.:23:11.

red card. It had to be for Ross Barbour. I played against Leigh

:23:11.:23:21.

Griffiths. He is a lone striker. He gets position between the centre-

:23:21.:23:31.
:23:31.:23:31.

backs. It was a good ball forward. The referee made the right to call.

:23:31.:23:40.

You have to be braver than that. It is above his face. The man in form,

:23:40.:23:44.

he was electric all day, giving them problems behind and showing

:23:44.:23:47.

composure when he gets there and when he gets the chance of the hat-

:23:47.:23:54.

trick. It is a perfect penalty. Nobody would say that. I like to

:23:54.:23:58.

see Leigh Griffiths scoring the way he did. Unbelievable strikes the

:23:58.:24:06.

season, longer-range efforts and during the week, a little flick.

:24:07.:24:11.

And inside the box, reactions. He will keep on scoring goals until

:24:11.:24:16.

the end of the season. 22 so far. You played against him defensively

:24:16.:24:26.

for Dundee United, how far could he go? I am surprised that they have

:24:26.:24:32.

met him come up on loan. They obviously need to score goals,

:24:32.:24:41.

walls, and he could have been a man to keep them in the Championship.

:24:41.:24:49.

He likes to score the long-range shots. The goal strikers like to

:24:49.:24:53.

score. My last time there was a Dundee derby in the Scottish Cup,

:24:53.:25:01.

Billy Dodds played and scored. It was back in 1991. United cross the

:25:01.:25:05.

road today for another road today for another

:25:05.:25:15.
:25:15.:25:22.

road today for another the Scottish Cup is separated by a

:25:22.:25:25.

sentry when Dundee lifted the trophy for the first time in 1910,

:25:25.:25:30.

few would imagine it would be their only success in this competition.

:25:30.:25:35.

Dundee United last got it in 2010, changing their manager mid-season,

:25:35.:25:39.

just as they have done this season. It is all change as the meeting

:25:39.:25:49.
:25:49.:26:27.

here three months ago with new There is a starts today for Stuart

:26:27.:26:37.
:26:37.:26:40.

Armstrong. They shake hands. John Brown welcoming the fans. It is

:26:40.:26:45.

well known they are separated by 200 yards geographically. United

:26:45.:26:55.
:26:55.:26:55.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 55 seconds

:26:55.:27:51.

have been streets ahead this season. Johnny Russell is watching on. That

:27:51.:28:01.
:28:01.:28:35.

is a man who would love to be out Dundee United. At first goal for

:28:35.:28:41.

Brian Maclean! Simple ball in. Nobody marked improperly. Lewis

:28:41.:28:45.

Toshney was supposed to be there, but lost them. Rab Douglas came

:28:45.:28:53.

that did not conquer. It is the same old feeling for Dundee, there

:28:53.:29:03.
:29:03.:29:27.

for Dundee and Jim McAllister celebrates! He steadied himself

:29:27.:29:32.

beautifully for the left-foot shot. Great let run into the box.

:29:32.:29:37.

Radoslaw Cierzniak only had the slightest of touches. Dundee would

:29:38.:29:41.

have been fearing the worst when they lost the opening goal, but

:29:41.:29:48.

their back on level terms. Rab Douglas fell like swinging on the

:29:48.:29:58.
:29:58.:30:34.

play. Since the goal, Dundee have He was already going down when John

:30:34.:30:44.
:30:44.:31:03.

at that. It came off Davide Grassi, not to cross by Lewis Toshney and

:31:03.:31:13.
:31:13.:31:25.

there was a great opportunity by Mackay Steven! He scores against

:31:25.:31:33.

Dundee for the very first time. He hit his shot low past Rab Douglas.

:31:33.:31:39.

Willo Flood on to Armstrong, denigrate run by Gary Mackay Steven.

:31:39.:31:49.

The finish was unstoppable. Lovely ball inside and dispatched. Perhaps

:31:49.:31:55.

Rab Douglas will be disappointed. The new Scotland boss, Gordon

:31:55.:32:05.
:32:05.:32:13.

if Radoslaw Cierzniak knew exactly where he was positioned. He did not

:32:13.:32:23.
:32:23.:32:35.

down to that to turn it behind. Good passing from Dundee United is

:32:35.:32:45.
:32:45.:32:55.

but has already seen three goals. Willo Flood sent it in. But pushing

:32:55.:33:02.

going on. The referee decides enough is enough. Half-time at dens

:33:02.:33:12.
:33:12.:33:12.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 55 seconds

:33:12.:35:01.

at the decider got momentum back, down well. Really good roof. It

:35:01.:35:07.

took a slight touch of Brian Easton. I am not sure John Brian Kidd us

:35:07.:35:17.
:35:17.:35:30.

United! The best move of the second have. Lovely ball forward by Richie

:35:30.:35:40.
:35:40.:36:11.

It is bad enough when United try to Beachy, but we knew her own

:36:11.:36:21.
:36:21.:36:40.

Davide Grassi went down, had a little kit -- kick out at Keith

:36:40.:36:49.

Watson. The yellow card is flashed at Davide Grassi. It will be a

:36:49.:36:59.
:36:59.:37:11.

Dundee players dropped to their knees. The United players salute

:37:11.:37:20.

the victory. Disappointment for John Bryant. For the second

:37:20.:37:23.

consecutive time at these sites have been drawn together in a

:37:23.:37:29.

Scottish Cup tie, it is the men from Tannadice who progress. Dundee

:37:29.:37:39.
:37:39.:37:45.

United just had that little bit I thought it was very frantic and

:37:45.:37:50.

many times not pretty on the eye. All credit to Dundee, they cost us

:37:50.:37:58.

a lot of problems, particularly in the first half. People can say Hugh

:37:58.:38:02.

did not defend the free kick well, but it shouldn't have been a free

:38:02.:38:10.

kick. There was nothing in the game. In the first half both games at

:38:10.:38:15.

opportunities. And the second at that was pretty even. We're just

:38:15.:38:18.

disappointed because of the officials do your job then we would

:38:18.:38:23.

have a replay at Tannadice. Dundee were probing all game. It could

:38:23.:38:31.

possession and did well but I thought our defence was solid.

:38:31.:38:34.

Radoslaw Cierzniak made a lot of good saves but overall the defence

:38:34.:38:41.

was very good. He did you enjoy the game? Not particularly common know.

:38:41.:38:45.

It wasn't a great game of football to be involved in. The atmosphere

:38:45.:38:52.

was fantastic but it wasn't the great game of football to watch. I

:38:52.:38:57.

don't think our performance was up to much but we managed to get the

:38:57.:39:03.

win and we're in the next round. D'you have sympathy for Dundee?

:39:03.:39:10.

they give everything they had. Thankfully for us we had a couple

:39:10.:39:20.
:39:20.:39:20.

of good goals. If Dundee player like that to the end of the season,

:39:20.:39:23.

there will pick up a few results. They clearly feel that it shouldn't

:39:23.:39:33.
:39:33.:39:42.

here. What do you reckon? I didn't think it was over the line, but

:39:42.:39:48.

having seen its, it looks over the line. I think they will probably

:39:48.:39:58.
:39:58.:39:59.

feel hard done by. They still have to defend the free kick a bit

:39:59.:40:07.

better. Rab Douglas probably had to do better if he was coming out

:40:07.:40:13.

there. But you have to give credit to the ball in. The that was a big

:40:13.:40:23.
:40:23.:40:25.

John Brown will realise that his team have got to defended better.

:40:26.:40:35.

Rab Douglas should have come earlier and make his mind up. It

:40:35.:40:41.

wasn't great defending from Dundee. Things like that can change games.

:40:41.:40:51.
:40:51.:41:03.

There was a lot to like about the technique, they were positive. Jim

:41:03.:41:08.

McAllister didn't even have to take a touch. Maybe Armstrong could have

:41:08.:41:18.
:41:18.:41:28.

That was the best move of the match by Dundee. Stuart Armstrong will

:41:28.:41:32.

:42:16.:42:20.

but the quality and technique that they should from the free kick and

:42:20.:42:29.

for that goal really shone through. A lot of attention is Sharratt on

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

:43:52.:43:58.

possession and kept the ball well in good areas. Probably rush in the

:43:58.:44:02.

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

Blair Alston? It was cracking. They think they have clears the danger.

Technically, it is a fantastic strike. Knee over the ball. He

for a bit longer. They are flying away in the league and have their

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

from the Ross County players. That was a fierce drive. This is the 4th

Raven is not happy. Neither are the managers! That was a terrible

challenge from Iain Vigurs on David Raven. It is usually a friendly

:54:35.:54:43.

rivalry, but tempers flaring. Mihael Kovacevic, he likes to

Graham Shinnie. The referee booked him for diving. Andrew, his brother,

It was a handy. A piece for the Highland pair. -- point apiece. Two

final. They have lost five games in a row and minus a manager. They

a row and minus a manager. They have problems.

:55:58.:56:04.

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

:56:04.:56:14.

few years, nearly every week. Experience in that team. If they

:56:14.:56:23.

get experience and a solid back four... I would not rule them out.

:56:23.:56:28.

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

:56:36.:56:40.

game in hand on other teams and will look to push on for top six.

:56:40.:56:45.

It is getting down to the business end where we need to pick up three

:56:45.:56:49.

points. We have been saying we need to win games and not draw games. We

:56:49.:56:56.

have drawn the last two. It has knocked us for six. The next four

:56:56.:57:03.

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,

:57:29.:57:36.

it has been his day. Your moment of the day? Pub in the final whistle.

:57:36.:57:42.

The relief of getting through after a scrappy game -- probably the

:57:42.:57:52.
:57:52.:57:53.

final whistle! What are you thinking about the draw coming up?

:57:54.:57:58.

It is a one-off game. We will take who we get. We will see what

:57:58.:58:03.

happens. Celtic will be the favourites. They have the biggest

:58:03.:58:09.

squad. If we get them in the semi- final, we will fancy ourselves on a

:58:09.:58:14.

one-off game that we can beat them. You have recent memories of winning,

:58:14.:58:23.

can at its by you? -- cam that inspire you? Of course. We won and

:58:23.:58:31.

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

:58:31.:58:36.

youth system at and hopefully they can go on and experience what we

:58:36.:58:41.

felt that day. It would be a mistake to underestimate the

:58:41.:58:47.

underdogs? Celtic have proven that before with Ross County. We have to

:58:47.:58:52.

remind them about that. Falkirk will once Dundee United or

:58:52.:59:02.

Hibernian. That is it. The draw will be at lunchtime tomorrow for

:59:02.:59:08.

Highlights from the quarter-finals of the William Hill Scottish Cup as near neighbours Dundee and Dundee United meet at Dens Park looking for a place in the last four of the competition. The day's other game sees last season's runners-up Hibernian travel to Rugby Park to face Kilmarnock. Presented by Rob MacLean with guest Billy Dodds.
