Hibs manager Tony Mowbray was pleased to see his side reach the Scottish Cup semi-finals but knows his side enjoyed a few breaks against Falkirk.
Mowbray saw Hibs lose in the semi-final last season
"There's no doubt the scoreline flattered us," said the Easter Road boss. "It was a bit harsh on them and you feel for their goalkeeper.
"It wasn't really a day for nice football. I don't think it was a particularly good game.
"But I'm just delighted to be in the last four of the competition."
Hibs skipper Gary Caldwell was among the scorers in the 5-1 victory.
The Scotland defender has signed a pre-contract agreement to join Celtic in the summer and would like nothing better than to end his Hibs career with a Scottish Cup winners' medal.
He said: "It would be nice to sign off with a medal but football is not always as kind as you would like it to be.
"There is still a long way to go and I'm sure every team left in the cup will think they have a chance of winning.
"But we're going to have to play better than that if we're going to go on and win it."
