The 22-year-old Moon, who has eight caps for South Africa, eclipsed fellow strikers Christian Doidge, Florian Kamberi and Oli Shaw - who all drew blanks on Wednesday night during their 45-minute cameos - with a powerful header from Stevie Mallan's cross in the closing moments of the match.

Head coach Heckingbottom has already added Christian Doidge from Forest Green Rovers to his attacking options, while the return from injury of Martin Boyle will also give Hibs an extra dimension in attack.

Kamberi and Shaw are also options in attack, while the Easter Road side haven't given up hope of re-signing Marc McNulty from Reading after a successful loan spell last season.
