Again, they couldn’t do it the easy way. Misses from O’Hara (over the bar) and Lawless (off the post) gave them a two-goal cushion, but Nisbet’s miss put it on Porteous to take care of business.

He sent Kelly the wrong way to send Hibs back to Hampden!

This is going to penalties.

Gogic has been sent off right at the end. This followed a bit of handbags from both sides after McGinley fouled Hallberg. Both of them also received yellow cards.

Wonderful chance for Hibs to win it. A mix-up in the Motherwell back-line allows Nisbet to play in Boyle. His low shot is saved by the boot of Kelly. It then comes back to Nisbet who tries a curler that drifts wide.

Irvine goes into the book after taking his protestations about a potential corner too far.

Almost a third for Motherwell as O’Donnell sends in another great cross. This time it’s Lawless who is inches away from connecting.

The second half of extra-time is underway.

Doig is replaced by Stevenson.

It’s half-time in extra-time. There’s 15 minutes left for someone to find a winner before penalties.

Hibs make their first subs. Wright and Hallberg for Doidge and Newell. Boyle goes up front with Wright at right wing-back.

Wright’s first act was to dribble the ball out of play.
