@williamsonkev: "Proper tough cup tie that. Still in the mix which is aw that matters."

@FreddieWhite23: "Good game that. Thought Hibs played very well but sadly couldn’t see it out. Looked fresh and everyone put a shift in. Thought Whitty & Rocky could maybe do better for their second, but other than that Hibs played well."

@jasond1988: "Same old story really. Dominated the game however soft as shit at the back. Nothing on the bench to change the game either and could do without a replay."

@davidke25595779: "Hibs a different animal with Martin Boyle . He is a top player."

@parmaham5: "United romping the championship. Hibs just back from a 3 week break. United would have beaten most PL teams. Do we need to improve, yes but I’m not panicking yet."

@LMc2105: "If we want to improve as a team we need better in some positions over the course of the season in my opinion I still think we need Defensive midfielder Striker Centre Back Left Back. Appreciate everyone has opinions but something needs done at the back as we are frail."

@ses101: "Usual story - some good play, but our defence is caught out too easily. And Marciano should have done better for the second - why didn't he stretch one of his hands out as he dived? These problems need to be solved with good permanent signings rather than cheap loans etc."

@deano1875ggtth: "Surely Oli shaw on for doidge was a no brainer after an hour?!? Geezer hadn’t touched the ball since he’d scored!!!"
