The Hibees ripped there opponents apart with some crisp passing throughout the game, with Stephen Glass, Benjelloun and Ross Chisholm the stand out players.

Hibs took the lead through some cracking football in the middle of the park, Stephen Glass played through a cracking pass to Benjelloun, who smashed his shot high past the
Albion keeper and into the top corner from about 12 yards.

The second was an absolute cracker, Benjelloun striking the ball from fully 25 yards out, on the half volley, the ball flew into the top corner at some speed.

The Hibees added a third just before half time, with some crisp passing, the ball landed at the feet of new boy Brian Kerr, who hit a good shot, down to the keeper's right, who made a good save, but the ball landed at the feet of Hibs TRIALIST, who couldn't miss the empty net.

Hibs made one more change before the end, Young striker Damon Gray coming on for Zemmama.
