Hibs never do things easy, do they? Jack Ross’ side were, for 80 minutes, much the better team at Easter Road and had themselves in a two-goal lead thanks to a header from Christian Doidge and a close-range finish from Jackson Irvine.

But Motherwell came roaring back in the final ten. Ricki Lamie cut the deficit before Tony Watt tied it up with just over a minute remaining.

In the end the match went to extra-time and penalties where, finally, Hibs were able to prevail once and for all. They’ll be in the draw for the semi-finals.
