How the Hibs and Scott Allan rated in securing a Premier Sports Cup semi-final place with win against Dundee United

Hibs set up a return to Hampden after last season’s three visits by ovewhelming Dundee United in the first half at Tannadice.

The quarter final looked all but over at the interval with Jack Ross’ side leading 3-0, but the home side made the most of the second period, reducing the deficit through Peter Pawlett and going close through the same player’s lobbed effort which was only ruled out by the linesman.

However an early strike from Joe Newell had set them on their way after only three minutes and further additions from Scott Allan and Martin Boyle earned the victory and Kevin Nisbet could even afford to pass up a close-range chance late on as a return trip to the National Stadium in November was secured, alongside fellow semi-finalists Rangers, St Johnstone and Celtic.
