McGinn knocks in the third goal for Hibernian at Easter Road

Liam Henderson and John McGinn scored their first Hibernian goals as Alloa were brushed aside at Easter Road.

Henderson followed up after a Jason Cummings shot was saved as half-time approached in a one-sided contest.

Cummings finished well from a David Gray pass early in the second half to help the Edinburgh side move up to third in the Championship.

And McGinn completed the scoring, picking up a short corner before drilling in a low strike.
