Hibs win to edge closer to SPL safety

Pat Fenlon’s Hibernian took a massive step towards avoiding relegation from the SPL with a nervy victory 2-1 over Aberdeen at Pittodrie last night.

The visitors broke the deadlock when a Leigh Griffiths cross was turned into his own net by Mark Reynolds after seven minutes and Sean O’Hanlon doubled when he headed home 10 minutes later.

Scott Vernon pulled a goal back after 53 minutes with a neat finish from close range, but despite a late rally from the hosts, it was Hibs who held on for three vital points.

Inverness secured their top-flight status in a 0-0 draw that left last-placed Dunfermline with a mountain to climb to escape the drop.

Hibs are five points above Dunfermline ahead of Monday’s clash between the two.

Rangers secured second place in the Clydesdale Premier League in style last night with a commanding 5-0 win over Dundee United. Sone Aluko grabbed a double and Steven Whittaker, Jamie Ness and Alejandro Bedoya claimed a goal apiece.

St Mirren beat Kilmarnock 2-0.
