Leigh Griffiths celebrates scoring the Hibs winner

Leigh Griffiths scored twice as Hibernian climbed to the top of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League with a 2-1 victory over 10-man St Mirren at Easter Road.

Hibs did not have it all their own way as Ben Williams twice made sharp saves, either side of Griffiths hitting the post, before a sumptuous strike from Kenny McLean put Saints ahead after 32 minutes.

Griffiths netted the equaliser after 37 minutes, scored his second after 65 minutes and Jim Goodwin was sent off for two bookable offences two minutes later as a fourth home win took Hibs top.
