Latas magic does it again Falkirk3 Hibs 2

Hibernian 2-3 Falkirk
PA


Falkirk produced a stunning second-half comeback to grab a 3-2 win in a pulsating encounter at Easter Road.A double from October young player of the month Darryl Duffy and an Alan Gow strike were enough to cancel out Derek Riordan's first-half brace on an incredible afternoon in the capital.Hibs seemed to be in total control at half-time with a 2-0 lead, but John Hughes' outfit deserve massive credit for the way they battled their way back into the match.A high-tempo start to the second period blew their hosts away and left the home defence panicking at every Falkirk attack.Duffy's winner sealed the win, but how Tony Mowbray's side will rue throwing away the chance to pull themselves 11 points clear of Rangers.The Leith men could not have dreamed of a better start to the match as they took the lead after only 35 seconds with a superb strike from Derek Riordan.Frenchman Guillaume Beuzelin took control of some loose play in the middle of the pitch and tried to pick out Garry O'Connor's run with a looping pass over the top of the visitors' defence.When the ball broke off the Scotland striker's heels and into the path of Riordan, the top scorer had only one thing in mind and he arced a magnificent shot over the despairing dive of Matt Glennon and into the net.Falkirk responded in superb fashion to such an early setback, settling into the game with a spell of possession which eventually saw them carve out chances galore.Stephen O'Donnell and Alan Gow glanced went close and Riordan swerved a shot across goal and wide.O'Donnell kept out Hibs skipper Gary Caldwell's bullet header from Kevin Thomson's corner but, with 32 minutes on the clock, Hibs got a second and it was another from Riordan.Scott Brown, revelling in the game after making his Scotland debut last weekend, was dumped unceremoniously by Tiago in a challenge which earned the Portuguese defender a yellow card.It was a perfect are for Riordan, who curled a sublime shot round the wall and into Glennon's top corner from 25 yards out.Hibs were becoming their own worst enemies at this point, however, as their poor passing from defence put themselves into trouble and Steven Thomson and Darryl Duffy both came close to pulling one back.Falkirk finally got the goal their play deserved in a tremendous opening to the second period.O'Donnell lifted a fantastic cross over the Hibs cover from the left and Duffy, guilty of spurning two glorious chances before the break, made no mistake this time, glancing his volley past Zibi Malkowski.The home side were stunned into action by the goal and poured forward in an effort to restore their two-goal advantage.There was a moment of controversy in the 55th minute as the far-side linesman flagged to signal a breach of the pass-back rules when Matt Glennon lifted a loose ball in his goalmouth.And referee Steve Conroy's failure to agree with his assistant was to prove crucial as Falkirk swept up the field to grab a dramatic equaliser.Duffy turned Gary Caldwell in the centre circle to kick-start a lightning break, with his threaded pass being brilliantly knocked past Malkowski under pressure by Alan Gow.The strike was testament to the Bairns' refusal to give up and was no less than they deserved for a magnificent, whirlwind opening to the second period.Sproule then had a run and shot held by Glennon and Craig Ireland did well to deflect a Derek Riordan shot on the turn round the post.O'Connor, Kevin Thomson and Steven Whittaker saw shots narrowly miss the target as Hibs tried to hit back, but their panicky defence looked likely to gift chances at every turn.Duffy and Riordan both had volleys save as the game continued to rage from end to end, and Falkirk incredibly got themselves in front to cap a wonderful comeback.Substitute Russell Latapy worked some magic on the left flank and cut the ball back for the supporting Kenny Milne.Malkowski appeared have his cross covered but, under pressure from Duffy, appeared to spill the ball against the striker and it ended up in the net.Hibs manager Tony Mowbray threw on Sam Morrow and Dean Shiels in a bid to find a way back into the match and Duffy was denied the chance to grab a hat-trick as he was replaced by Pedro Moutinho.

You all will have no idea how much this will mean to Russ and his family. This is fantastic!

I will be seeing him on Saturday, but I will hold off on delivering these messages until the 31st December because I want as many people as possible to get a chance to wish him well!

You are a good lot of people!

Congrats to my hero. Sir, you have no clue what it means to me that your are back. You're the gift that keeps on givng your magic and wonder...and now you have another miracle in your new born.

I would like to put a short quote of a letter I wrote To a certain Mr. Corneal dated 27/01/05:

".....Now, let me talk about why I am writing. Sir, I do not pretend to be an expert on football or a coach but I do follow as an avid fan both on the local and international level. I strongly believe we can make it to Germany 2006. I write to you to make a simple suggestion. Please work to get Latapy back in our football in some fashion, be it as a player, assistant coach or both. I am not going to make arguments as to why he should be included in any of those capacities as his magic speaks for itself. Its time to bring some of that magic which is clearly recognized outside of Trinidad back home...."
