Paul Tait said: “Get in there; a walk in the park – easy peasy.”

Oliver Tidman added: “A great start to our Scottish Cup campaign!”

Craig Healey picked out his star men: “Thought everyone did well but Doidge and Newell were the star men tonight.”

James Kinniburgh had praise for Doidge: “Great to see him getting into goalscoring form at this crucial stage of the season.”

Hibs fan Lee wrote: “Second half is the best attacking performance I have seen from Hibs in a very long time. Was a great watch and entertaining. Hopefully much more like it to come.”

One Hearts fan had this to say about Stephen Dobbie’s penalty claim: “Even I though it was poetic justice that Hibs scored with the breakaway.”

Louis1875zz added: “Newell, Irvine and Gogic has to be the coolest midfield ever. Not a nerve in sight as we go on to lift the cup.”

Stephen Sibbald had praise for Doidge and Gogic: “Excellent stuff tonight. Glad to see Doidge get some more goals after his poor run recently. I thought Gogic was great in the middle of the park too.”
