Last Hibs team to face Stranraer at Stair Park on Scottish Cup duty
By ten to five the temperature was distinctly colder and not just because of the thick sea haar that was blanketing the town. The Easter Road side – with Ulises de la Cruz, John O’Neil, and Ulrik Laursen in the starting line-up – huffed and puffed, passing up chance after chance against the part-timers.
The final result of 0-0 told its own story. On the touchline, the face of under-pressure manager Franck Sauzee mirrored the weather. The 2,259 fans who had braved the cold and mist faced another 90 minutes (at least) at Easter Road a week on Tuesday.
Stranraer, who not so long ago had beaten Hibs 2-1 in the Capital, were keen on another shock in Edinburgh.
This is the team and subs that faced the Blues at Stair Park.
