Pa Saikou Kujabi’s Hibernian came from behind to secure a surprise 3-2 win over Inverness, which has moved them six points clear of bottom side Dunfermline in the Scottish Premier League.

Inverness had failed to make their dominance despite home advantage until the 60th-minute penalty score over the weekend.

Hibernian’s Hanlon headed the equaliser four minutes later and Garry O’Connor swept the ball home after 75 minutes, and Leigh Griffiths fired Hibs’ 85th-minute winner, according to BBC.

The side had gone into the game with  low confidence after having won only once in their last nine games in the Scottish Premier League, having not scored in their last three and looking to avoid a third straight defeat.

Inverness are six points ahead of Hibernian despite the home defeat.


Muhammed Keite’s Strømsgodset beat Dawda Leigh’s Vålerenga 3-2 in the Norwegian first division league fixtures. The match was part of game two of the 2012 league.

Both teams are currently standing on three points each after winning a game so far in the league.
