Hibernian moved back up to second in the Scottish Championship with victory over 10-man Dumbarton.

The visitors were awarded a penalty when Chris Turner fouled Liam Craig but Farid El Alagui's attempt was tipped on to the post by Danny Rogers.

Paul Hanlon did find the net when he headed in Scott Allan's corner but Mitchel Megginson's strike levelled.

Turner was sent off for a foul on Jordon Forster and Jason Cummings tucked in what proved to be the winner.

Alan Stubbs' Hibs go level on points with Rangers but move above them courtesy of a superior goal difference. The Ibrox side, who have two games in hand, visit Queen of the South on Thursday evening.

Hibs and Rangers lead Falkirk - who occupy the other play-off spot - by six points, with Queens two points further behind.
