HIBERNIAN climbed to second after a convincing 4-1 win against Alloa.
Hibs dominated from the first whistle and Jordon Forster saw a header cleared off the line from Scott Allan’s cross.
They took the lead in the 31st minute when Martin Boyle collected a pass from Allan and raced into the box before finishing low across goalkeeper John Gibson.
It was 2-0 before the break when what looked to be a cross from Liam Craig took a huge deflection off a defender and nestled in the top corner.
Craig hit a post with a swerving shot from distance early in the second half, but it was 3-0 when Dominique Malonga raced away and picked out Jason Cummings who slammed in his 17th Championship goal of the season.
Alloa pulled a goal back shortly afterwards as Iain Flannigan rifled home from the edge of the box, but Malonga made it four for Hibernian after Forster headed back across goal.
