Hibernian’s Scottish Championship season continued with a win against Dunfermline at Easter Road on Saturday.

It may only be two-matches in but the unbeaten start to the season was maintained with Hibs securing a two-one win over Dunfermline with Cummings again hitting the winner in the second half.

Hibs took the lead when Richards-Everton turned a ball into his own net from Hanlon just past the half hour mark, with this lead taken into the break.

Dunfermline pushed in the second half with Reilly bringing the Pars level just ahead of the hour but a mistake from Fordyce let Cummings in and he made no mistake from a Boyle cross to win it on 78-minutes.

Cummings now has three-goals in two league matches as Hibs reacted well to the Betfred Cup exit to move joint-top with Raith Rovers at the top with the crowd of 16,477 the largest turnout in Scotland on Saturday.

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