  1. Goodbye for now...

    That emphatic win should make Hibs, now four points clear of tonight's visitors, strong favourites to win the Championship title and automatic promotion.

    The focus turns tomorrow to those battling for promotion play-off places - and to avoid relegation - with four more Championship games, plus a full card in League One and League Two.

  2. 'We didn't deserve anything' - McKinnon

    FT: Hibernian 3-0 Dundee United

    Dundee United manager Ray McKinnon on BBC Radio Scotland: "I am really disappointed. That wasn't great from us and we conceded the game in the first 20 minutes.

    "It was really nervy at the start and they were really ragged. 

    "We didn't deserve to get anything. We didn't pass it with any zip or purpose.

    "We are four points off the top the league and we will be giving it our best in every game to the end of the season to get promotion.

    "At the start of the season, we would have been pleased to be in this position with a chance to win the league."

    BBC Sport Scotland at Easter Road

    Quote Message: John McGinn on the field for about 15 minutes at the end of this Hibs stroll - having been out injured since mid-November - but he's absolutely excellent. Strong tackles, a nicely taken goal, some cutting passes and a fantastic return to the ranks, all lapped up by a thrilled home crowd. No wonder. This was one-sided from start to finish. Hibs hold a handsome four-point lead at the top of the Championship. Hard to see United living with them from here

    Tony Andreu's penalty gave United their win over Hibs last month, but the on-loan Norwich City man's frustration tonight is complete with a yellow card.

  14. 'Different class' McGinn kills off United

    Hibernian 3-0 Dundee United

    Former Hibs forward Tam McManus on BBC Radio Scotland: "That was vintage John McGinn. 

    "What a substitute to be able to bring on. He is absolutely different class and has killed this game off. Game over."

  15. Post update

    Hibernian 3-0 Dundee United

    Tope Obadeyi is a threat again to Hibs and his low cross gives Cammy Smith a sniff at goal, but the forward is unable to backheel the ball home from close range.

  16. YELLOW CARD

    Hibs right-back David Gray goes into the referee's book.

  18. GOAL Hibernian 3-0 Dundee United

    John McGinn

    Hibs are on their way to a four-point lead as John McGinn, only seconds on the pitch following ankle surgery, waltzes into the penalty box and slots the ball through the legs of goalkeeper Cammy Bell from an acute angle. All with Scotland head coach Gordon Strachan watching in the stands.

    Three and easy for the Hibees.

  19. YELLOW CARD

    Hibernian 2-0 Dundee United

    Mark Durnan is the latest United man to go into the book - for a foul on Marvin Bartley.
