A Jason Cummings goal early in the second half was sufficient to see Hibernian return to winning ways against Raith Rovers.

Having been brought down in the penalty box, Cummings saw his spot-kick saved by Kevin Cuthbert, but did enough to force home the rebound.

Rovers enjoyed a strong first half, but faded as the hosts seized control after the interval through Cummings' strike.

Hibs move second in the Championship, three points behind Rangers.
