Dodds fluffs his chance
Hibernian 3-2 Dundee United
Scotland striker Billy Dodds passed up a glorious chance to snatch a point for Dundee United in an incident-packed Scottish Premiership match with Hibernian at Easter Road.
The Tangerines looked to have done enough to earn a draw when they were awarded a penalty in the fourth minute of injury time after a foul on Joaquim Ferraz.
Few in the crowd would have imagined Dodds, who had opened the scoring, would squander the chance, but he did, sending his spot-kick ballooning over the bar.
Dodds had put United in front after just four minutes with a chip over Oli Gottskalksson, but Hibs levelled when visiting defender Jason De Vos hacked the ball into his own net.
Jan Telesnikov retored United's lead at the break, but Russell Latapy swung the fixture Hibs' way with two goals in the second half.
First he converted a 61st minute penalty and then struck a rasping drive with 11 minutes on the clock which, after Dodds' miss, proved enough for victory.
