Hibernian’s Scottish Championship season got underway with a win against Falkirk at the Falkirk Stadium on Saturday.

Neil Lennon got off to a winning start in the league for Hibernian with a Jason Cummings brace securing a two-one win over Falkirk.

Cummings got Hibs off to a dream start when opening the scoring after just two-minutes but within no time Falkirk were level through Craig Sibbald and that’s how it remained at the half time break.

As with the first half it didn’t take Hibs long to restore the lead again, this time Cummings’ goal was one the Hibees did hold onto to claim all three-points.

Here’s a round up of the Scottish Championship action from the other matches played.

The 2017-16 season is now underway….

Life under the management of Neil Lennon in league action began with Hibernian securing a two-one win at Falkirk, giving the new Hibs boss a winning start to a season where they’ll be firm favourites for promotion at the third attempt of asking.

Others will have a say in that of course though!

Raith Rovers were a winner at Ayr as were Dunfermline in a seven-goal thriller. A four-three win was secured at East End Park against Dumbarton.
