Hibs wallop Dundee

Hibernian 5-2 Dundee

Hibernian put five goals past Dundee to secure their first win in 11 matches at Easter Road.

Trinidad international Russell Latapy was the star of the show, scoring two goals and tearing apart the visitors' defence.

Kenny Miller, Franck Sauzee and Dirk Lehmann also converted their chances after Dundee had taken an early lead through a Roberto Matute goal.

Willie Falconer took advantage of Tom Smith's slip in the area and struck a Lee Wilke free kick directly at goal. It was going in anyway, but Matute put his boot on it to make sure.

Miller equalised for the Hibees following a beautiful spell of interpassing then with four minutes of the first half to play, Latapy slammed home their second to give them the advantage at the interval.

Sauzee scored Hibs' third with a scorching free-kick from 20 yards to give the home side a two goal advantage.

Falconer then struck again for Dundee's second, but they were finally blitzed off the park in the last 15 minutes, with Wilkie sent off for a second yellow card offence.

Latapy put the result beyond doubt after taking a speculative long-range blast through the Dundee defence, then Lehmann poached a fifth goal in the final minute to finish the demolition.
