Dunfermline hit back to hold Hibs

Dunfermline held Scottish Championship leaders Hibernian to their third straight league draw in an entertaining 2-2 contest at Easter Road.

Martin Boyle gave Hibs a sixth-minute lead, slotting in Jason Cummings' pinpoint cross from the left at the back post.

Boyle was involved in the hosts' second goal, which came on 24 minutes after he was felled in the box. Cummings sent Sean Murdoch the wrong way from the resulting penalty for his 15th goal of the season.

Dunfermline pulled one back two minutes later when David Gray miscued at the back, allowing Paul McMullan to finish low.

Immediately after the break Kallum Higginbotham equalised with a powerful shot from the right of the box. Visiting striker Michael Moffat came closest to a winner, hitting the bar soon after.
