Hibernian 2-0 Alloa Athletic

A goal in each half against Alloa Athletic put Hibernian's promotion push back on track.

Having lost to Falkirk last weekend, fourth-place Hibs moved into the lead when Danny Handling slid in to net from close range.

Dominique Malonga struck the second midway through the second half.

Hibs defender Liam Fontaine had a header saved as Alan Stubbs' men moved to within three points of Queen of the South in the Championship.
