Jason Cummings scores for Hibernian against Cowdenbeath
Cummings' first-half strike proved to be the winner

Jason Cummings scored his sixth goal of the season as Hibernian held on to beat Championship strugglers Cowdenbeath.

Paul Hanlon got on the end of Scott Allan's cross to prod in from close range after 25 minutes.

The visitors doubled their lead four minutes before the break when Cummings smashed in from the middle of the box.

Hibs keeper Kleton Perntreou, on for the injured Mark Oxley, produced a fantastic save to deny Lewis Milne before Jon Robertson nodded in.
