• Manager Steve Lomas 'delighted' at St Johnstone win
• Stirling Albion beat Rangers in the Third Division
Hibernian moved to the top of the Scottish Premier League with a deserved 3-0 win over the bottom club, Dundee. Eoin Doyle headed the home side into a first-half lead before Leigh Griffiths gave Hibs a comfortable lead with an early second-half penalty. David Wotherspoon completed the scoring with a calm finish 16 minutes from time.
St Johnstone recorded their fourth successive league win with a 2-1 victory over St Mirren at McDiarmid Park. Nigel Hasselbaink netted the opener against his former side after 22 minutes when he collected Murray Davidson's flick-on and slotted the ball under Craig Samson. Davidson added a second eight minutes before the break when Samson could only parry out Chris Millar's low cross, allowing the midfielder the easiest of finishes from six yards. St Mirren responded three minutes into the second half through Lewis Guy but though they dominated the majority of the second half, the hosts claimed all three points.
Motherwell called off their SPL clash with Dundee United after a power failure in the local area. Fir Park and neighbouring properties were affected by the power cut about 15 minutes before kick-off. Kick-off was initially delayed by 10 minutes but the home club then confirmed they had taken the decision to postpone the match for safety reasons.
Rangers suffered a shock first defeat in the Third Division after crashing to the bottom side, Stirling Albion, at Forthbank Stadium. The hosts had lost their previous five league outings but picked up their second win of the campaign after Brian Allison grabbed the only goal of the game.
Ally McCoist's men faced a side rooted to the bottom of the table, whose manager Greig McDonald was absent from the dug-out to attend his own wedding, knowing victory would propel them to the Third Division summit. Instead, it was Stirling who surged into the lead after Mark Ferry delivered a corner to the back post which dropped for Allison, who took advantage of dreadful defending from Rangers to bundle over the line. Rangers could have had a penalty in the second half when Dean Shiels went to ground under pressure from Kieran McAnespie but there was no spot-kick from referee Bobby Madden.
Kevin Kyle was thrown into the action with 20 minutes to go and nodded just over from a Lee Wallace cross, before Steven Weir squandered a great chance for Stirling.
With time fast running out for Rangers, Shiels delivered an inviting ball across goal for Kyle but the big striker failed to connect in front of the gaping goal. Shiels then stabbed wide in the final minute as Albion held on for the win.
