HIBS WIN THE PENALTY SHOOT-OUT!

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.

Porteous has just pulled off a legitimate goal-saving tackle to deny Long after a clever through ball. If not fort the centre-back’s intervention the striker would’ve had a clear sight at goal from 16 yards.

Extra-time is underway.

That’s the end of normal time. What a finish that was - but there’s more to come. Another 30 minutes plus the prospect of penalties.

Newell has an effort from inside the Motherwell penalty box but it’s curled straight at Kelly.

It’s another goal for Motherwell! Would you believe it? And it’s former Hearts striker Watt who’s got the goal. O’Donnell put in a brilliant cross and Watt was there to head back across Macey and into the far corner.
