Leigh Griffiths gave Hibs the lead after 18 minutes when he volleyed home Eion Doyle's cross.

Doyle then doubled the lead on 51 minutes when he planted a finish into the top right-hand corner of the goal after some neat build-up play from Paul Cairney.

Gary Mackay-Steven reduced the deficit for Peter Houston's side two minutes later, curling a shot beyond goalkeeper Ben Williams from outside the area.

United were unable to force an equaliser however and the home side held on to go three points clear of second-placed Celtic.
