Hibernian 3-1 Arbroath

Hibernian battled back from a goal down to beat League Two leaders Arbroath and reach the Scottish Cup last eight.

The visitors stunned the hosts when they took the lead through Keiran Stewart's angled drive into the top corner.

But Hibs squared it before the break as Franck Dja Djedje fired home from David Gray's pass.

A Liam Gordon own goal gave the hosts the lead and Dylan McGeouch made it 3-1 with a dig from outside of the box.
