Hearts’ unbeaten Edinburgh derby run stretched to eight games as goals from Josh Ginnelly, Lawrence Shankland and Toby Sibbick dumped Hibernian out of the Scottish Cup at the fourth round.
Lee Johnson’s side dominated chunks of the game but could not capitalise, with goals either side of half time all but ending the tie before the late third.
Shankland became the first Hearts player to score 20 goals in a season since 1992, but the captain was sent off in stoppage time after receiving his second yellow card of the game.
The victory means Robbie Neilson picked up his first win at Easter Road as Hearts manager, but it increases the pressure on counterpart Johnston, with Hibs now having won just three of their last 14.
