  2. Get Involved - Edinburgh derby reaction

    Josh Taylor: Delighted to come home after a hard nights sparring & hear that @HibsOfficial got a great win over the Jambos tonight in the Scottish Cup

    Michael Stewart: Well played to Hibs & Neil Lennon for a thoroughly deserved victory. Their season is building up well now. I can't believe there has been an overestimation of where Hearts are, what was the basis for that? & regardless, you always have to fight.... 

  3. Get Involved


    David Inch: Ian Cathro needs to learn performances speak louder than words. To be honest his rhetoric is starting to bore me! 

    Peter McCarter: To suggest it's too early to sack Cathro is ridiculous! How long do we leave it? Till we back in Championship? Going that way...

    Ecky: "Overestimated where we are." Eh? That would only make sense if Hearts had been on a strong run previously. They haven't.

  4. Hearts 'failed to fight' - Ian Cathro

    Hibernian 3-1 Hearts

    "We failed to fight hard enough: for the shirt, for the club, for the supporters, for everything that this game [edinburgh derby] means to people. 

    "Because of that, we lost any chance of momentum in the game."  

    Hearts head coach Ian Cathro

    "It comes down to individuals, it comes down to little details. But look, maybe the mistake has been us overestimating the stage we're at as a team, and forgetting slightly that we needed to focus more on the more simple, basic things in the game.

    "It's a problem for us because that's a couple of backward steps, which we need to accept. From then, we recognise that we've got a lot of making up to do to a lot of people. So, we've overestimated where we are and we [need to] find solutions to it quite quickly."   

  5. 'I'm really proud' - Neil Lennon

    Hibernian 3-1 Hearts

    "I'm delighted and really proud of the team as well. Obviously, I got the reaction I was looking for from Saturday [draw at Raith Rovers] and they were magnificent. 

    "We thoroughly deserved to win and dominated the game for large parts. We were the hungrier team."

    "We exploded at time through them and it [the final scoreline] could've been a lot more. 

    "I thought they got fortunate with the penalty - I thought it was a penalty - but Ofir Marciano's made a great save and we were slow to react. But we were dominant.

    "That is the enigma this team is sometimes: they go from down there to through the roof. We just need to find more consistency.

    "I wish we could play under the floodlights every week..."

  6. The story of the Edinburgh derby

    Hibernian 3-1 Hearts

    Clockwise from top: Hibs boss Neil Lennon, Jason Cummings celebrates at full time with David Gray and the Hearts fans reflect on the defeat
  7. Get Involved


    Inside The SPFL: Hibs had this game won in the 1st half, the 2nd was about seeing the job out which they did as comfortably as they'd ever hope to imagine. 

    Zico Mikedinho: Well done Hibs. Outplayed Hearts in both ties. Relieved we only got beat 3-1. Interested to hear Ian Cathro defend that effort. 

  8. Get Involved


    Tom and 20 others: If we don't win the cup, who cares? We just won the cup! #ggtth

    Alan: Not a Hibs fan but I do enjoy listening to them singing Sunshine On Leith. Well done @BBCSportsound for not talking over it  

    Andrew: Well we won the possession stats and that's what counts these days. Shambolic. 

  9. Get Involved


    Graeme Dobson: Absolute garbage from Hearts. The Ian Cathro experiment is a busted flush. Get rid now and take Martin with him. Get Paul Hartley in.  

    Gavin Skinner: You better ask Cathro some very searching questions. As Michael Stewart said - totally unacceptable.  

    Graham Roberts: Not only have we got bragging rights but now we also know which team plays the best football in Edinburgh #andheartscomethird

  10. FULL-TIME Hibernian 3-1 Hearts

    Scottish Cup holders Hibs breeze into the quarter-finals - and a tie against Ayr United - with a ruthless dismantling of Hearts in the Edinburgh derby.

    The home fans launch into a rendition of Sunshine On Leith; happy days for Hibs but only storm clouds for the Jambos heading out of Easter Road, and home, minus the derby bragging rights.


    Hibernian 3-1 Hearts

    Hibs keeper Marciano denies Nicholson's fierce drive, sending the effort behind for a corner. Hearts, though, can't profit and the hosts are just about there. 


    Hibernian 3-1 Hearts

    Three minutes of added time at Easter Road.

  13. CLOSE!

    Hibernian 3-1 Hearts

    Is there time for another goal? Combative Hibs midfielder John McGinn pick-pockets Jamie Walker before fizzing a 20-yard shot at goal... just wide.

  14. Hibernian 3-1 Hearts

    Fraser Fyvie replaces the impressive Jason Cummings, the striker hasn't given the frazzled Hearts rearguard a moment's peace tonight. 

  15. Hearts lack fight in derby

    Hibernian 3-1 Hearts

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport Scotland at Easter Road

    "Hearts have improved as this second half has progressed but they've really failed to build on their goal, which is now looking more and more like a consolation.

    "Currie has been lively for them since coming on at the break but they're a beaten side. The fans' biggest disappointment will be the manner of tonight's defeat. They've never been in the fight."

  16. Contrasting emotions at Easter Road

    Hibernian 3-1 Hearts

    Hibernian fans are in party mood at Easter Road

  17. CLOSE!

    Hibernian 3-1 Hearts

    Arnaud Djoum fires a shot at goal... but it whistles inches past the post. Another goal for the visitors and you never know.

    Seconds later Jamie Walker has a chance and sees his shot deflected behind for a Hearts corner. A late charge from Ian Cathro's troops?

    Hearts fail to muster an effort on goal from the set piece and Hibs continue to chew down the clock.


    Hibernian 3-1 Hearts

    Darren McGregor heads home Hibs' fourth goal from Jason Cummings' free-kick... but the assistant referee/linesman's flag cuts short the latest bout of green & white celebrations.

  19. Hibernian 3-1 Hearts

    A well-earned rest on the beanbag for veteran Hibs striker Grant Holt, who receives a standing ovation as he trots off to be replaced by Brian Graham.

    Hearts make their final change: Choulay comes on for Struna.
