Martin Boyle and Simon Murray scored as Hibernian won for the fourth match in a row to stay third in the SPFL Ladbrokes Premiership table, and keep Dundee on the bottom. Marcus Haber had given Neil McCann's men a fighting chance with his first half equaliser but the defeat is the fifth in a row for the Dark Blues.

      Easter Road Stadium opened on 4 February 1893 with a match between Hibernian and Clyde.
      In the next decades, Hibernian regularly contemplated moving to another site, but finally decided in 1922 to stay at the ground. Two years later three banks of terraces and a main stand were erected.
      Easter Road Stadium recorded its highest attendance in 1950 when 65,860 fans attended the derby versus Hearts.
      Minor improvements to the stadium were made in the 1950s and 1960s, but few in the decades following. By the late 1980s, the state of Easter Road had significantly deteriorated and safety measures had reduced capacity to about 27,000.
      In the early 1990s, Hibernian considered moving to a brand new stadium, however plans were abandoned in 1994, and one year later a redevelopment of Easter Road was started. Two new stands were built behind the goals, and the rest of the stadium was converted into an all-seater.
      The redevelopment of Easter Road continued in the 2000s, first when a new West Stand was built in 2001, and most recently in 2010 when the new East Stand opened.

      Dundee finally managed to get of the mark by claiming a point against Hibs at Dens Park.

      Kevin Holt has us in front early on only for Anthony Stokes to tie the score on the stroke of half time. 

      Hibs pushed forward for the win but Dundee, who were plying without a recognised striker, held on for that all important point.

      It was another afternoon of despair for the long-suffering fans of Dundee as they watched their team being beat 3-0 while only really threatening the opposition goalkeeper in the opening minutes.

      When quizzed if he felt he was still the man to get the club off the bottom of the table and climbing up the league, McCann responded: “Yes, absolutely,” while insisting that had not spoken to John Nelms about his future.

      "I don't seek assurances. I’ve not had any conversations with John with respect to my job.
      “I just keep working hard. If that time comes then we will have the discussion but so far, it’s not happened.

      “I feel we are working under pressured circumstances, clearly. I’m not going to hide from that. I know we’re on a real, real bad run in terms of results, so I won’t be ignorant to that fact.
      “I’ll deal with the pressure. You take a job in management, you have to deal with the ups and downs.

      “Every manager I’ve worked with has had to work under those circumstances and I’m not the type of guy who is going to be frightened by that challenge. I’ll just keep working hard as that’s the only thing I can do.
      I’m trying to give the lads every piece of information they can use.
      “Unfortunately, the guys are playing with that lack of confidence. I can’t give them that. They have got to find that.”
      “They still have my belief in them and I’ll keep giving them it.”
