Hibs moved back into second place in the Championship with a comfortable 3-0 win over Dumbarton at Easter Road this afternoon.

Hibs missed the chance to move above Rangers in the Championship thanks to a last minute sucker punch from Raith Rovers’ Christian Nade at Easter Road today.

Head Coach Alan Stubbs made one change to the starting XI that beat Queen of the South last week, with new on-loan signing from Dundee United, Keith Watson taking over at right back from Callum Booth who was told last week that he would not be offered a contract at the end of the season and elected to move to Partick Thistle on loan.

Dominique Malonga who is away on international duty was replaced by Martin Boyle whilst David Gray who is out through injury was replaced by Callum Booth who took over the right-back role.
