  1. Bye for now

    Thanks for your company this afternoon.

    Don't forget Sportscene has highlights of today's Scottish Cup semi-final on BBC One Scotland at 22:40 BST.

    And we'll be back tomorrow with all the build-up and action from St Johnstone v St Mirren in the other last-four tie.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  2. 'Poor decision went against us'

    FT: Dundee Utd 0-2 Hibernian

    Dundee United manager Micky Mellon is irked with Hibs' second goal, scored by an offside Christian Doidge.

    "A really poor decision goes against us to go 2-0 down when we were looking to make the game nervy," he tells Sportsound.

    "Everybody knows it was offside. Hibs probably deserved over the course of the game to go through, but those big moments you have to get right."

  3. 'Such a happy changing room'

    FT: Dundee Utd 0-2 Hibernian

    Hibernian head coach Jack Ross tells Sportsound: "Somebody might try to stick a Hibs badge on the cardigan.

    "Really delighted for the players and staff. They've been outstanding for me all season. I believed the players would prove they were good today.

    "I would've taken any sort of win but I thought I got a win that was fitting of the levels this season.

    "It's such a happy changing room. They know they've got to come back here in two weeks' time and try and do the same again. For the next couple of hours at least, it's just a moment to savour.

    "It's a brilliant, exciting end to the season for us."

    Jack Ross celebrates
  4. Hibs wait to learn final opponenents

    FT: Dundee Utd 0-2 Hibernian

    So, Hibs are into the Scottish Cup final on 22 May.

    Who they face will be decided tomorrow when St Mirren and St Johnstone go head to head in the second semi-final at Hampden.

  5. Dundee United 'didn't show the quality'

    FT: Dundee Utd 0-2 Hibernian

    Dundee United manager Micky Mellon tells Premier Sports: "When the wee moments came for us, we didn't show the quality that's needed on these days.

    "That was a disappointing performance.

    "Everything to build on, everything to learn and to take forward."

    Micky Mellon
  6. 'About time we had a bit of luck'

    FT: Dundee Utd 0-2 Hibernian

    Hibernian striker Christian Doidge tells Sportsound: "Coming into this one, we really wanted to win it. To get the win and into the final is amazing.

    "We can't wait for the final now. We played really well. We rode our luck a few times but it's about time that it went in our favour.

    "I've had a bit of bad luck in front of goal so it was about time it turned around."

    Christian Doidge celebrates

  8. 'United poor & lacked energy'

    FT: Dundee Utd 0-2 Hibernian

    Willie Miller

    Former Scotland defender on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Hibs deserved it. United were poor first half and they lacked energy. They got better and the change of shape helped, but Hibs controlled the game and created the better chances.
  9. Nisbet's 'relief & delight' at making final

    FT: Dundee United 0-2 Hibernian

    Hibernian striker Kevin Nisbet tells Sportsound: "Relief and delighted, obviously. It's the first time in my career for a final.

    "I'm delighted for the club. We've lost a lot of semi-finals.

    "Jackson Irvine's ball doesn't make me break my stride and a took a touch and put it through his legs so delighted.

    "We've got a massive game Wednesday to secure third. It's a very exciting few weeks. Hopefully we can go win it and I can get a Scotland call-up.

    "We'll take anybody in the final."

    Martin Boyle and Kevin Nisbet
  10. FULL-TIME Dundee Utd 0-2 Hibernian

    Hibs are deservedly through to the Scottish Cup final where they will face either St Mirren or St Johnstone.

    Kevin Nisbet's neat first-half finish was added to after the break by Christian Doidge.

    United will rightly feel aggrieved Doidge's strike wasn't ruled offside, but the truth is Micky Mellon's men didn't offer enough throughout.

    Hibs have reached their first Scottish Cup final since 2016

  11. CLOSE!

    Dundee Utd 0-2 Hibernian

    A last-gasp burst from United as Lawrence Shankland gets two bites of the cherry in the Hibs box but can't beat Matt Macey.

  12. Post update

    Dundee Utd 0-2 Hibernian

    United are awfully stretched at the back and Jamie Murphy tries to rub salt in their wounds, but Calum Butcher gets a good block on the near-post drive.

  13. Post update

    Dundee Utd 0-2 Hibernian

    United are battling to the bitter end, but their race looks run.

    We're into five minutes of injury time. Not sure where the referee got that from.

  14. GREAT SAVE!

    Dundee Utd 0-2 Hibernian

    After a half-hearted penalty appeal from United striker Marc McNulty, Hibs race upfield and nearly add a third goal.

    Christian Doidge's shot is blocked but Jamie Murphy nips in to send a curling drive arcing towards the top corner until Mehmet Deniz claws the ball behind.

  15. Post update

    Dundee Utd 0-2 Hibernian

    Opening scorer Kevin Nisbet makes way for Jamie Murphy to provide fresh legs in the closing stages.

    Nisbet's performance will have done no harm to his chances of making the Scotland squad for the Euros.

  16. Post update

    Dundee Utd 0-2 Hibernian

    Into the final 10 minutes and Hibs looked to have weathered the United storm following the second goal.

    Having lost five straight semi-finals in knockout competitions since their 2016 Scottish Cup success, it would take some collapse to cost the Leith men now.

  17. Post update

    Dundee Utd 0-2 Hibernian

    Martin Boyle at his wriggly, menacing best now.

    This time he jinks down the right flank past Jamie Robson, who responds by hauling the Hibs winger to the ground and earning a booking.

  18. Post update

    Dundee Utd 0-2 Hibernian

    A superb slaloming run by Martin Boyle takes him past a host of United players before Ryan Edwards brings him down right on the 18-yard line.

    Kevin Nisbet sizes up the free-kick and sends it straight down the middle with plenty of power, forcing Deniz Mehmet to parry the ball over.

  19. Happy Hibee

    Dundee Utd 0-2 Hibernian

  20. Post update

    Dundee Utd 0-2 Hibernian

    Hero defending from Liam Smith as Hibs break up the other end and Martin Boyle is clean through until the full-back gets a toe on the ball with a last-ditch tackle.

    A warning for United as they chase the game.
