Fraser Headed the Revival
Hibs Assistant trainer John Fraser has good reason to recall the club’s first test against Portuguese opposition. that was against belenenses nine years ago and Hibs trailed 3-0 until Fraser took a hand with his had and knocked in two goals. Hibs pulled off a 3-3 draw and won the second leg in Lisbon.
Three years ago Hibs climinated Porto after an extremely close fight. Peter Cormack, who struck twice in the first leg which Hibs won3-0, was sent off in the return. Although Hibs scored right away from a Davis penalty, Porto hit back with a vengeance and made the agreatgate 4-3. But even another goal wouldn’t have been enough for them as Hibs had scored an away goal.
