@HibsCentral: "Regarding Doidge... So many wrote him off as useless (me included at one point) and he’s seriously turned it around. He’s actually bloody brilliant!! Hats off to the big guy, takes some strength of character to stick in like he has. A call up to the @FAWales surely beckons for Doidge. You cannot ignore this guy."

@catmsinc: "Made hard work of the two legs but at least we’re through."

@northernsky67: "Through the wringer as usual Hibs but yaaas still in the hat."

@HibeesMc: "Joe Newell btw might actually be a decent player."

@zipnolan: "Christian Doidge getting the plaudits he clearly deserves after his excellent Hibs hat-trick but Joe Newell is rapidly becoming a key player. Another excellent performance tonight, well impressive throughout the game."

On Hibs.net, Yer Auld Da posted: "There’s a few in that squad proving us all wrong. James hasn’t exactly set the heather alight but look at the turnaround in some of the other players... have some patience."

Bishop Hibee added: "Doidge is probably the biggest turn around in form I’ve ever seen in a Hibs signing. Newell has a new lease of life in central midfield. James, Vela and Maxwell were/are poor though."
