Dundee failed to increase their advantage over the Premiership’s bottom two as they went down to Hibs at Dens Park.
Mark McNulty grabbed a brace along with one each for Florian Kamberi and Stevie Mallan to give new Hibees boss Paul Heckingbottom his second win in a row since taking charge.
Paul McGowan and Martin Woods got on the scoresheet for the home team but it wasn’t enough.
If Hamilton take anything against Rangers on Sunday, the Dark Blues will be back in the relegation zone.
Dundee: Dieng (GK); Horsfield, Ralph, R McGowan, Kusunga; Woods, P McGowan (Robson 65), J Curran, Dales (O’Sullivan 65); Wright; C Curran (Miller 56).
Hibs: Marciano (GK); Gray, Stevenson, Hanlon, McGregor; Milligan, Slivka, Mallan, Horgan (Omeonga 62); McNulty (Shaw 64), Kamberi.
