Hibernian cruised into the third round of the CIS Insurance Cup with an easy victory over Second Division Peterhead.
Hibs put out a strong side against the Second Division side
Peterhead defender Iain Good deflected Rob Jones' header from a Merouane Zemmama's corner past goalkeeper Paul Mathers after just six minutes.
Abdessalam Benjelloun headed the SPL outfit's second before half-time.
And Scott Brown bundled in a third after the break, with Jamie McCluskey adding the fourth from the spot after being brought down himself.
Hibs manager Tony Mowbray had made just two changes, with Michael Stewart and Steven Fletcher dropping out to be replaced with Ivan Sproule and Dean Shiels.
Visiting full-back Good was given a torrid time by Sproule's pace on Hibs' right flank and the home side's only gripe would be that they did not press home their advantage more emphatically.
Peterhead had goalkeeper Mathers to thank for keeping the score down, particularly in the opening half as he repelled efforts from Sproule, David Murphy, Jones and skipper Kevin Thomson.
Benjelloun's header from a Zemmama cross in the 32nd minute gave the home side a two-goal cushion at the break.
And, when Brown bundled in Jones' knock-down from a Zemmama free-kick in the 52nd minute, Hibs threatened to run riot.
Substitute McCluskey added a fourth from the penalty spot after he had been brought down in the box needlessly by Jamie Buchan.
Hibs simply kept possession as the match wound down but occasionally broke out of toying with their opponents to threaten a fifth.
However, the hard-pressed visitors' rearguard held out to ensure they took a respectable scoreline back to the north-east.
