John Smith's goal in the third minute of injury time earned Dundee a 3-2 win over Development League leader’s Hibs. The result lifts the Dark Blues into second place, just three points of Hibs at the top of the table.
Hibs handed a start to former Hearts defender Faycal Rherras, while Olly Shaw lead the line for the league leaders. Roarie Deacon featured alongside Genseric Kusunga and Lewis Spence for Dundee and he had them ahead twice in the match, but goals from Lewis Allan and Gregor Woods’ injury time header looked to have salvaged Hibs a point until Smith converted Deacon’s cut back.
Dundee came flying out the traps, and look the lead after six minutes when Deacon turned inside the box and fired a low shot past Maciej Dabrowski at the near post.
Deacon went close moments later when a corner fell to him at the edge of the box, but his volley flashed wide.
After a slow start, Hibs began to grow into the game, and equalised when Lewis Allan beat Dundee keeper Jeremy Malherbe to a cross, and headed the ball into the net.
The footballing cliché that you're most vulnerable when you've just scored proved all too real for Hibs as Dundee launched an attack from their kick off, and Deacon curled the ball into the top corner from 15 yards.
Hibs had Dabrowski to thank for keeping them in the game. The goalkeeper denied Deacon, Jack Lambert and Cedwyn Scott before half time.
