A remarkable cup tie. After Hibs got that early lead they sat on it - a tactic which appeared about to pay off despite intense United pressure. Two goals in the space of two minutes turned the tie on its head as Lars Zetterlund scored a late equaliser and Gary McSwegan put us ahead 90 seconds into extra-time. With Charnley's penalty miss within five minutes of McSwegans goal went Hibs hopes of salvaging the tie.
