Melker Hallberg’s first goal of the season put an end to Hibs’ win

Three goals in six minutes secured Hibs the final seed in the League Cup second round draw as Dundee became one of the group’s top finalists.

Stevie Mallan struck from long range but Christie Elliott equalized after the smart pass from Paul McGowan.

Kevin Nisbet was credited with Hibs’ second goal, but it looked like a home goal from Jordan McGhee.

And substitutes Jamie Gullan and Melker Hallberg were quick to add their names to the scoresheet.

Jack Ross’s team, which had four of four wins in Group B, started strong and Mallan received the pass from George Newell before unleashing a 30-yard strike that beat goalie Jack Hamilton in a central spot. .

Nisbet dismissed for Newell at the end of a quick passing streak and the eventual shot sank to the ground before coming back from the right post.

Hibs ignored the warning after Danny Mullen threatened the visitors and McGowan’s chipped ball knocked out the home defense for Elliott to force a home equalizer.

Jamie Murphy was the architect of the second Hibs, his driving race knocking out two defenders before his cross to Nisbet was returned by McGhee and Boyle, then set up tap-ins for Gullan and Hallberg.
