Hibernian claimed a comfortable win over Dumbarton in the Scottish Championship.

Though Grant Gallagher's shot cancelled out Dominique Malonga's opening strike for Hibs, the home side got ahead again through Liam Fontaine's head.

A handball by Darren Barr resulted in a penalty for Hibs and Jason Cummings converted just before the break.

James Keatings fired a fourth for the hosts before the Sons' Steven Craig headed a consolation goal.

Alan Stubbs' Hibs stay third in the division.
