Four-star Hibernian close gap to Falkirk with convincing Dumbarton win
Hibernian moved level on points with second-placed Falkirk in the Ladbrokes Championship after a brace from James Keatings helped beat Dumbarton 4-0 at Easter Road
The Scottish Cup finalists, with Conrad Logan back in goal as one of four changes, went ahead after just six minutes when Keatings collected Fraser Fyvie's through ball and sent a left-foot shot into the top corner.
Keatings made it 2-0 on 13 minutes after being set up at the back post by Niklas Gunnarsson
Logan saved well from Calum Waters as the visitors threatened later in the half but Hibs went into the break with their two-goal lead intact.
After a brief melee following a foul by Jon Routledge on Hibs midfielder Liam Henderson, Alan Stubbs' men made sure of all three points on 75 minutes as Kevin Cawley deflected a shot from Keatings into his own net.
On-loan Celtic forward Anthony Stokes stabbed in a fourth from a corner during stoppage time as Hibs boosted their goal difference to within three of the Bairns.
