Marc McNulty sunk BSC Glasgow with a Scottish Cup hat-trick- and then claimed Hibs are in it to win it.
The Reading loanee scored three of the four goals, setting up the other, as the Hibees secured a comfortable 4-1 win over the Lowland League side.
A favorable tie awaits them in the quarter finals now. Hibs have been drawn to face Championship side Inverness, with the victor of this clash booking a spot at Hampden.
McNulty’s got his eyes on the prize. Silverware should be the aim of a big club like Hibs according to the Royals loanee who expressed his delight in getting his second Leith scoring stint off the mark.
“We knew BSC would work hard and make it difficult for us but we got the job done,” said McNulty. “It was difficult to read the ball. Sometimes the ball would be coming to you and it would change direction.
“We just got on with it. It was important to just come and get the win. The wind was pretty strong, the ball was going everywhere. It’s brilliant to score goals and it was good to play 90 minutes.
“It’s been a while since I played 90 minutes, I need to get fitter and sharper. They got a goal and were creeping back into it, they had a couple of chances. We probably weren’t good enough at times but fair play to the boys getting the job done.
“The club should be winning cups. Everyone looks at Celtic and Rangers as if they need to win everything but defintley not. When you’re in it, you’ve got to believe you can win it.
“We’re confident we can go and do something. I’ll take the match ball home and give it to the little man!”
