Highlights: Dundee 0-3 Hibernian

Dundee remain without a league point after three second-half goals gave Hibernian an emphatic win at Dens Park.

The hosts started brightly but faded as Florian Kamberi and Martin Boyle scored in quick succession early in the second half.

Hibs had passed up several chances in the first period, and Kamberi thumped the bar shortly before the opener.

Substitute Thomas Agyepong smashed in a third late on to compound Dundee's misery.

Neil McCann's side have now lost all six of their Premiership matches.

Hibernian have won back to back games for the first time in the league this season, and move up to second place, five points behind rivals Hearts.

Hibs find their form

After a sensational end to last season, Hibernian have been a tad slow off the mark in this campaign, and were without a win in seven away matches.

Dundee have been struggling to score and keep goals out, a recipe for zero points heading into this match.

They did start brightly though. Adil Nabi led the charge in the early stages, first driving a shot towards the bottom corner which Adam Bogdan did well to push wide.

Hibs were lacklustre early on but grew into the game and created several clear chances.

First Daryl Horgan headed wide when unmarked in the box after a David Gray cross. Then Gray charged to the byline and cut the ball back for Stevie Mallan, whose sliding effort was well saved by Parish, and Kamberi missed a simple chance once the ball came back into the box.

Neil Lennon must have had strong words for his players at half-time, because his side came out firing. Martin Boyle slid through a delightful ball for Kamberi, who beat Parish to the ball and with the deftest of touches found the bottom corner.

Boyle then grabbed one for himself after he was set free down the right hand side, drove into the box and lashed an effort across Parish and into the net.

The second goal seemed to suck every remaining drop of confidence from Dundee, and it was the visitors who continued to press.

Kamberi somehow headed wide from a Mark Milligan cross, and Agyepong curled one over after some neat build up play. The Ghanaian wasn't to be denied a second time though, smashing in the third goal after some nice trickery in the closing stages.

McCann 'under pressure' - analysis

BBC Scotland's John Barnes at Dens Park

The pressure was on Neil McCann and Dundee going into this game and they had grounds for optimism as Hibs hadn't won away from home in the league since February at Ibrox.

But the pressure on the manager has intensified after this latest defeat, their seventh in a row. They had a couple of early chances but their lack of a cutting edge was evident again.

Whatever Neil Lennon said at half time seemed to work as Hibs picked holes in the Dundee defence and were 2-0 up within nine minutes of the restart.

That stunned the home side and while they continued to try and find a way back into the game they came up against a Hibs side which was solid at the back and quick on the counter attack.

When Agyepong scored Hibs' third two minutes from the end it sealed the victory and may well prompt the Dundee board to consider if there is a way out of their present predicament.

The usual taunt when a manager is under pressure, "you're getting sacked in the morning", was aired by the Hibs fans at the end just to emphasise the dire situation Dundee find themselves in.
