Dundee 3-1 Hibernian: Hosts slim hopes of survival alive after ending 11-game winless run

Charlie Adam goal v Hibernian
Charlie Adam’s stunning late strike sealed a priceless win for Dundee

Dundee kept their slim hopes of Scottish Premiership survival alive after ending an 11-game winless run under Mark McGhee with victory at home to Hibernian.

Only a win would would do for the hosts, who scored after three minutes through Niall McGinn before James Scott capitalised on poor defending to level.

The home side were incensed when Josh Mulligan’s header was ruled out, but the teenager nodded in after the interval, with Charlie Adam sealing the win with a stunning late strike.

Should St Johnstone avoid defeat at home to Aberdeen on Wednesday, Dundee’s relegation will be confirmed.

But just a second win in 21 league games has provided a lifeline to McGhee’s men, who are now three points off the Perth side with an inferior goal difference of five and one game left to play.

Managerless Hibs, who remain eighth, dominated the contest for large spells but failed to make that count against the Premiership’s bottom club.
