Any idea if this will be tickets in advance ( and if so when you buy ) or pay at gateThey have a real goal threat in Shankland and Clark and Clark's goal was a beauty. Unfortunately for them in the Dundee derby they were fed on a diet of crumbs all night, and watching United there tonight I am much more confident about Hibs winning the cup-tie than I was when the draw was made. If we can win the midfield we should win the game. Famous last words and all that...
I agree with both of you. I would take a draw between two sides neither of whom are great.A win and no less for me. United aren't a great side.
It will be a hard game to win, no doubts about it. What also goes against us is the fact that we will be going into the match having not played a competitive game for three weeks, whilst United have still been playing every week.I'm not so sure Ross county or Livingston would be sitting miles ahead of the rest in the championship tbh. Think we're in for a really difficult game against a side really high in confidence.
It’s a very important game for United as they already have promotion sewn up and have a massive overspend to reduce with the Scottish cup their only means of doing this short term other than selling Shankland.I would suggest however that this game is far more important for Hibs than it is for United. Their sole objective for the season is promotion, and that looks a formality now
Just as importantly we have to stop the supply getting to him.Nicky Clark broke his ankle yesterday so a wee boost there,if we can stifle Shankland like Dundee did in the derby recently then should be winning.
