League Cup Group B
Hibernian 3-1 Brora Rangers
Hibs: Steve Mallan (2), Paul Hanlon
Brora: Dale Gillespie
Highland league champions Brora Rangers recovered from the loss of two early Steve Mallan goals to push a strong Hibs side all the way in their League Cup season opener at Easter Road.
Dale Gillespie's 20-yard free kick just beyond the hour mark got the visitors back into the match, and it wasn't until Paul Hanlon headed home a third in the 89th minute that the Premier League team sealed the win.
The Cattachs continue their League Cup fixtures with a home tie against Championship side Dundee on Saturday afternoon.
