St Johnstone midfielder Christopher Millar
Millar's goal set St Johnstone on their way to victory at Easter Road

Hibernian   1 - 3   St Johnstone

St Johnstone came from behind to knock Hibernian out of the Co-operative Insurance Cup at the third round stage.

Hibs took the lead within the first minute when Anthony Stokes swept a rebound shot past keeper Alan Main.

But Gavin Swankie's drive quickly levelled matters before Derek Riordan missed a penalty for the home side.

Substitute Christopher Millar put Saints ahead in the 76th minute and Jody Morris' half-volley made sure of victory nine minutes from the end.

Having defeated St Johnstone 3-0 in Saturday's Scottish Premier League fixture, Hibs set about recording a similar scoreline straight from the kick-off.

Stokes, who grabbed a brace at the weekend, reacted quickly to steer his shot into the net after Darren McCormack's first attempt was blocked by Main.

Saints' response was almost immediate as Swankie received the ball at the back post and finished well past Stack.

Minutes later, Swankie tested Stack with a free-kick effort after Ian Murray had been penalised for handball.

Stack denied Murray Davidson before a skilful run and shot by Steven Milne was also blocked by the Hibs keeper.

Liam Miller won a spot-kick in the 32nd minute after being fouled by Graham Gartland but Main was equal to Riordan's attempt from 12 yards.

Deuchar drew a save from Stack early in the second half before Main comfortably gathered an effort by Stokes.

Stokes then crossed into a dangerous area and Davidson was prevented from scoring an own goal by Jody Morris' clearance.

And from the resulting corner, Hibs were again denied by a goal-line clearance, with Murray foiled by MacKay.

Riordan was unsuccessful with a shot from the edge of the box and within seconds Davidson came close at the other end.

Main saved well from Stokes, who was then denied by a last-ditch tackle by Danny Grainger.

Millar replaced Liam Craig for the visitors and quickly made his mark on the match by giving St Johnstone the lead for the first time.

The midfielder received fellow substitute Filipe Morais' pass deep inside the penalty area and rolled the ball into the net.

And Morris put Saints further ahead with a powerful 20-yard shot after Stuart McCaffrey's header had been cleared off the line by Paul Hanlon.


Hibernian manager John Hughes:
"I felt St Johnstone deserved their victory. Their attitude and application was slightly better than ours.

Interview - Hibernian manager John Hughes

"In saying that, we got off to a right good start. We didn't hold onto it long enough, which was disappointing.

"They're a good side, they play some good football. They thoroughly deserved their victory tonight, that's the disappointing thing.

"We were trying hard enough, it just didn't go for us tonight. Certainly in the fundamental side of the game, we were second best. We lost bad goals."

St Johnstone manager Derek McInnes:
"It was nice to progress in the cup, we know what a good cup run can bring to the club.

Interview - St Johnstone manager Derek McInnes

"I thought we got our just rewards tonight. I think there was a quiet determination about them tonight that they wanted to rectify Saturday's result.

"We got rocked by losing the goal early and it was a real test for the players. But they responded and scored a good goal through Gavin Swankie.

"We took more of our chances tonight and it was a great finish from Chris Millar. The third goal from Jody Morris was a magnificent strike, technically brilliant.

"It was a good team performance. Individually, we won a lot of battles out there and that was important.

"We're in the quarter-finals, hopefully we can win our next one if the draw's kind to us and who knows where it will take us? Certainly, if we produce that type of performance, we're capable of beating most teams."
