Scottish Championship: Dumbarton 0-1 Hibernian

Hibernian extended their perfect start in the Scottish Championship as a Jason Cummings goal proved enough to beat Dumbarton.

Cummings grabbed the only goal from the penalty spot in the 32nd minute after Grant Holt had been pulled down in the box by Gregor Buchanan.

Goalkeeper Alan Martin produced a smart save to prevent Andrew Shinnie doubling the lead.

Holt and Cummings also threatened as the Sons did little at the other end.

A third clean sheet made it five wins from five for leaders Hibs.
