Hibs hit back to go three points clear at top

Leaders Hibernian came from behind to win 3-1 at Dunfermline in the Ladbrokes Scottish Championship and move three points clear at the top.

Dunfermline's Kallum Higginbotham sent goalkeeper Ofir Marciano the wrong way with his 22nd-minute penalty after Grant Holt fouled Andy Geggan in the box.

The visitors levelled in the 55th minute, James Keatings cutting in from the right and firing a shot that deflected in off Nat Wedderburn.

And on 66 minutes Holt's spot-kick, which sent Sean Murdoch the wrong way, put Hibs ahead after Lee Ashcroft took out Andrew Shinnie as the striker ran through.

Brian Graham replaced Holt and made it 3-1 from a cut-back in the 90th minute

Home substitute Michael Moffat was then sent off for an off-the-ball altercation with Darren McGregor.
