A Daryl Horgan-inspired Hibernian easily dispatched of Elgin City in Saturday's Scottish Cup clash to march on to the last 16 after a 4-0 victory.
Horgan, who signed for the club last summer from Preston North End, scored twice to help Neil Lennon's outfit to a comfortable win. A Stevie Mallan penalty and Florian Kamberi strike completed the job.
His first was a commanding header past Tom McHale.
The former Dundalk player doubled his tally in the second-half.

26-year-old Horgan was named Man of the Match for his showing. Speaking to the Edinburgh News, Hibs assistant boss Garry Parker singled out the Irish winger for praise.
He’s scored two goals, even a header - he outjumped the goalie. He’s done well. It was a nice game to come in to after the break, and we’re just pleased to be in the next round.
Daryl Horgan’s a class act. Genuinely two-footed and has great balance. Summed up his character when he headed the first when he knew he’d be clattered and, equally, when he passed instead of shooting on a hat-trick. A top man. pic.twitter.com/EaO3N9THPx
