Dundee United defeated Hibernian 2-1in a dramatic Scottish FA Cup semi-final.Dundee United have booked their place in the Scottish FA Cup final with a dramatic 2-1 victory over Hibernian at Hampden Park.
Two goals in three late second half minutes from Jim McIntyre and substitute Jason Scotland sent Gordon Chisholm's side through to next month's final at the same venue.
Hibs looked on course for their first final since 2001 when Derek Riordan scored from the penalty spot just before the hour mark, but the Tayside club were able to turn the match around in the dying stages.
After a goalless first half, in which Terrors goalkeeper Tony Bullock had to be at his best, it was the Edinburgh club that took the lead on 58 minutes after Barry Robson bundled over Hibs' Dean Shiels in the box.
Riordan stepped up to coolly send Bullock the wrong way and make it 1-0.
However, McIntyre brought Dundee United level on 73 minutes after converting Robson's run and cross in the Hibernian box for 1-1.
Three minutes later, the Tannadice faithful were sent into further delight, as Scotland beat Hibs goalkeeper Simon Brown with a left foot strike from the edge of the box to make it 2-1.
Despite propping up the Scottish Premier League table, Dundee United will have been ecstatic with their passage to the final while the more fancied Hibs will have wondered about what might have been on Saturday.
The Terrors will meet either Hearts or Celtic in the final, with those two sides to meet at Hampden Park on Sunday in a match that can be seen on Sky Sports 1.
