Scottish Cup round-up: Dundee United knock St Mirren out as Hibernian cruise into quarters

Premiership St Mirren's wretched run of form continued as a 2-1 Scottish Cup loss at home to Championship promotion hopefuls Dundee United condemned them to a fifth straight defeat. Oran Kearney's side found themselves two goals adrift at the interval, with Slovakia striker Pavol Safranko scoring his 11th of the season in the 16th minute and Nicky Clarke doubling the advantage on the stroke of half-time.

United midfielder Calum Butcher เว็บ แทง บอล was given a straight red card in the 62nd minute for a high challenge on Ryan Flynn and St Mirren grabbed a lifeline 15 minutes later when striker Duckens Nazon, on loan from St Truiden, pulled one back. But despite incessant pressure late on, the Saints failed to draw level. Managerless Hibernian cruised into the last eight at the expense of League One Raith Rovers.

Under the guidance of caretaker boss Eddie May, Hibs were rarely troubled, taking a 2-0 เว็บ แทง บอล lead into the interval courtesy of goals from Daryl Horgan - back in the side after a two-match absence through injury - and Lithuanian midfielder Vykintas Slivka. Marc McNulty, on loan from Reading, put the tie beyond doubt just before the hour mark with a cool side-foot finish, with Euan Murray's 75th-minute header nothing more than a consolation for the visitors.

East Fife failed to follow up their Challenge Cup win over Partick Thistle in September as they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Gary Caldwell's side at New Bayview. In form after a run of five wins from their last six matches, เว็บ แทง บอล the Fifers failed to record a single shot on target and instead were undone by veteran defender Steven Anderson. On loan from St Johnstone, the 33-year-old made it two goals in two matches since joining Thistle by nodding home a Craig Slater corner just after the hour to clinch a fourth successive victory for the Jags in all competitions.
