Dundee edge it over Hibs

Hibernian 1-2 Dundee

Dundee substitute Steven Milne sealed the points for his team with a late strike against ten-man Hibs.

In an incredible final few minutes, John O'Neil was sent off for diving, Craig Brewster missed two gilt-edged chances and Milne snatched the points with his injury-time goal.

Dundee had gone ahead early on through Gavin Rae only for Brewster to grab an equaliser on the stroke of half-time.

Hibernian were first to threaten after 60 seconds as Ulises de la Cruz tried to emulate his 36-second opener against Hearts but the Ecuador international's strike was easily saved.

Gavin Rae nearly sent Beto Carranza clear with a great pass but Dundee were thwarted by the offside flag.

Alen Orman sent over a great cross and Tom McManus should have done better than head straight at Jamie Langfield from a great position six yards out.

The visitors went in front on 19 minutes after a great solo goal from Gavin Rae.

The midfielder showed great belief to beat a couple of defenders then cut inside Franck Sauzee and sent a thumping 22-yard left-footed drive passed the diving Nick Colgan and into the left corner.

Hibs were nearly level within three minutes after Langfield struggled badly with a De la Cruz cross but the Scotland under-21 keeper then made a brilliant save, tipping over from Murray.

Brewster then sent a shot over before McManus went on a good run, getting himself into a reasonable position at the edge of the box before shooting wide.

In first half stoppage time Hibernian levelled after a long cross from Orman forced Langfield out of his goal and Brewster out-jumped the keeper to head the ball over him and into the empty net.

The Hibs support rose to their feet in the 50th minute thinking they had gone in front but Walter Del Rio came to Dundee's rescue.

The Argentine sprang up on the goal-line to somehow clear Brewster's goal-bound header which had been cleverly directed away from Langfield after a De la Cruz cross.

Sauzee tried another free-kick on 64 minutes from a difficult angle wide on the left, but Langfield saved the shot comfortably.

With only a few minutes left, O'Neil went down looking for a penalty but referee Willie Young saw it as a dive and having already been booked, O'Neil had to go.

Dundee brought on Steven Milne for Caballero on 87 minutes but it was Hibs who nearly clinched all three points in stoppage time when Brewster did everything right to get clear before shooting past from a great position.

But in the second minute of stoppage time Dundee claimed an incredible winner when Milne showed great composure to break clear before rifling a shot past Colgan.

Five minutes into stoppage time Brewster again was the villain for Hibs, shooting over from three yards after Fenwick headed on a Zitelli corner.

Hibernian: Colgan, Fenwick, Sauzee, Laursen, De la Cruz, Orman, Brebner, O'Neil, Murray, Brewster, McManus.

Subs: Caig, Arpinon, Townsley, Smart, Zitelli.

Dundee: Langfield, Smith, Khizanishvili, Del Rio, Beghetto, Romano, Rae, Carranza, Garrido, Caballero, Temuri Ketsbaia.
