Hibs go 12 points clear of Hearts with Edinburgh derby win

Scott Allan scores for Hibernian

Hibernian moved to within a point of third-placed Aberdeen and 12 clear of Hearts after victory over their city rivals at Easter Road.

After a closely contested first half, Scott Allan drilled in a sweetly struck opener from the edge of the area.

Hearts goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin then tipped a thumping Jamie Maclaren effort against the bar, before the Aussie striker rolled in the second.

The visitors did not manage a shot on target throughout the game.
