tom watson: "I want to say things are finally starting to come together for Hibs. But I don't want to say it out loud. Just in case."

Robbie Devenney: "I might go lie down in a dark room for the next 15 to 30 minutes."

A few fingers will be minus nails by the end of this evening it seems.

CLOSE!

Hibernian 3-3 Dundee United

Ryan Dow weaves past a couple of challenges and the midfielder's low drive from 20 yards powers just wide of the Hibs post.

Trevor McAuley: "Paul Dummet at Centre Half @ the Etihad? St Mirren didn't realise they had a legend in the making." A reference there to Newcastle United's stunning 2-0 win away to Manchester City in the English version of the League Cup tonight.

Hibernian 3-3 Dundee United

A Liam Craig snap shot from 20 yards is on target, but United goalkeeper Radoslaw Cierzniak deals with it easily enough. The pace has gone out the game slightly, which is only to be expected given the speed it has been played at.

Hibernian 3-3 Dundee United

We're under way again in Edinburgh and a Nadir Ciftci drive from all of 30 yards takes a deflection and goes for a corner that Hibs manage to scramble clear.

Matthew Kennedy's deflected goal for Hibs took the tie at Easter Road into extra-time.

HALF-TIME (extra-time)

Hibernian 3-3 Dundee United

Hibernian 3-3 Dundee United

It is United's turn to produce a goal-saving intervention as Conor Townsend stoops to head clear an Alex Harris cross that looks destined for the unmarked Dominique Malonga.

Hibernian 3-3 Dundee United

A superb, defence-splitting pass from Stuart Armstong gives Blair Spittal a glimpse of goal 12 yards out, but the midfielder's shot on the turn is well blocked as United begin to apply the pressure.

We now know that Saturday's League Cup semi-final draw, which will be made live on Sportscene Results on BBC One Scotland at 17:05 GMT, will involve Aberdeen, the holders, Celtic, the favourites, and Rangers. Will the Ibrox side be joined by another Championship outfit in the shape of Hibs, or will Dundee United prevail to make it three Premiership sides in the last four?

Hibernian 3-3 Dundee United

Nadir Ciftci has the first chance of extra time, but the Turkish striker sends a free-kick well wide of a Hibs post. Play rages to the other end and a corner whips across the face of the United goal without receiving a touch.

KICK-OFF

Hibernian 3-3 Dundee United

We're on our way again at Easter Road. How much more excitement can Edinburgh take?

Jamie Lynch: "My work computer's F5 button is getting a solid workout this morning over in NZ.!. Come On Hibs!"

bringthemonjpn: "So, Partick put out an "EPL style B team" to let the opponents through. Scottish football moving into the Eurozone." That is a bit mystifying. By my calculation, they made two changes, with two first-team regulars returning. Think it was the sending off that killed them.

BBC Radio Scotland pundit John Robertson

"I noted down 18 attempts at goal by both sides. This has been one of the best 90 minutes I have seen for a long, long time."

Shay Logan produces a superb tackle to deny what might be Hamilton's last chance to force extra time. That's where it looks to be heading at Easter Road.

Hibernian 3-3 Dundee United

Stuart Armstrong volleys a low drive through a cluster of players, but Hibs keeper Mark Oxley is behind it all the way. The hosts are on the attack right away and Radoslaw Cierzniak saves bravely at the feet of Dominique Malonga. What a game.

Kieran Smith: "Never has text commentary been so exciting - could/should be working but glued to the screen - refresh!" Thanks for the compliment. The fiver's in the post Kieran!

Aberdeen 1-0 Hamilton Academical

Tony Andreu forces Aberdeen goalkeeper Scott Brown into another fine one-handed save from a curling drive that threatened an Accies equaliser.

GOAL

Hibernian 3-3 Dundee United (Matthew Kennedy)

As I was saying! Substitute Matthew Kennedy drifts in from the left wing and his shot loops off the back of a United defender, over goalkeeper Radoslaw Cierzniak and into the far corner of the net. Game on! That's the on-loan Everton winger's first United goal.

Hibernian 2-3 Dundee United

United striker Nadir Ciftci forces goalkeeper Mark Oxley into a near-post block. It is end-to-end stuff at Easter Road. Difficult to predict the outcome here.

Tom English

BBC Scotland at Celtic Park

"Celtic have been very slick and have kept their foot on Thistle's throat. They want more goals. It is mortifying for Hamilton as it is, but it could get worse."

Celtic's Emilio Izaguirre celebrates

Emilio Izaguirre's goal helped put Celtic on their way to an easy victory.

Aberdeen 1-0 Hamilton Academical

Hibernian 2-3 Dundee United

Hibs are so close again as Liam Fontaine flicks a header just wide of the far post.

Hibernian 2-3 Dundee United

Paul Hanlon is just not an athletic enough figure to score there as the big central defender attempts something resembling an overhead kick in front of the United goal.

Hibernian 2-3 Dundee United

Nadir Cifci fires wide from 18 yards as United go close to extending their lead. The striker was a bit greedy there as Stuart Armstrong was looking for a pass after racing into a threatening position.
