JASON CUMMINGS answered Terry Butcher’s call for a hero – and I don’t see any way back for Hamilton in the second leg of their Premiership play-off final today.
A double from young Cummings earned Hibs a 2-0 lead and on the evidence of last Wednesday they can extend that at Easter Road.
Accies will have to score first to have a glimmer of hope but I’m on Hibs at 1-1 with Paddy Power to win again. Accies are 16-5 at McBookie and BetVictor to win on the day and 10-1 at McBookie and William Hill to complete a massive turnaround and win promotion.
However, they were leading 2-0 at half-time the last time they visited Easter Road and are 10-3 with William Hill to be ahead at the break. If Hibs don't score first it could be exciting with a few goals as in reality the visitors need three to qualify and will have to risks at some point.
Cummings will be the man to watch again is 11-2 at McBookie to net first and 2-1 at William Hill to score in a home win.
It was the Hearts fans first goals for the club and that should be rememebered. He should have been in the Scotland Under-19s squad but instead rose to the occasion under the greatest of pressure with two fine goals and must be confident of hitting the target again.
Hibs had been in awful form before the first leg but as I said in last week's preview Accies aren't as good as the sides they've been playing week in week out and it showed.
