"I think we've dominated the game start to finish today. Struggled to get on the end of the final pass in the first half but second half, massive improvement." 💬— Hibernian Women (@HibernianWomen) November 12, 2023

Grant Scott was pleased to see his side advance in the Sky Sports Cup after an empathic 7-0 victory against Dundee United.
The result sees Hibernian advance to the semi-finals of the competition for a third successive year, and Scott says this is emblematic of the recent success his side have seen.
“We dominated the game from start to finish. We struggled to get on the end of our passes in the first half, but in the second we managed to take our chances when they came along. I’m pleased for the group today.”
The manager also highlighted the performance of Eilidh Adams and praised the forward for her ruthlessness and dedication of late.
“It’s a perfect day for her. It’s her one-hundredth appearance and led the team as captain as well. She’s got a hat-trick and is a lifelong Hibs fan so she must be loving it. She’s a player that I hope is around the club for a long time.”
Scott also praised the offensive qualities shown by Siobhan Hunter and Lauren Doran-Barr – with our number 22 scoring her first goal for the club.
“Shiv is always a threat in the opposition’s area when we’ve got set plays, there’s no doubt about that. With Lauren, we’ve had a running joke about how many times she’s gotten at the back post this season. She’s managed to get a goal today, so I’m really pleased for her as well.”
With the attention now turning to the Edinburgh Derby at Easter Road next Saturday, Scott called for his players to remain focused ahead of an important match against Hearts.
“We’ve got two really strong, evenly matched sides. It’s a big game for us. We’re at home and we’re looking to take our current form into that game. You can see from the league table it’s going to be between two tight teams but we’re going to take our feel-good factor into that game.”
He also appealed to fans with a special message ahead of the fixture.
“It’s free entry – get yourself along and you’ll see a great football match between two aggressive, attacking sides. A derby is a derby, and you want to be their when your team win. Let’s get as many in as we can!”
