Hibs have to settle for third place in Championship despite victory

Hibernian missed out on second place in the Ladbrokes Championship on goal difference despite a 2-0 win over 10-man Queen of the South.
Niklas Gunnarsson and Jason Cummings scored the goals but Alan Stubbs' men now face a two-legged quarter-final play-off against Raith after being pipped by Falkirk to second.
James Atkinson in the Queens' goal had to be sharp to keep out early efforts from Liam Henderson and James Keatings.
Gary Oliver had a great chance to put the visitors ahead 10 minutes before the break but he sliced his shot over the bar.
Queens were reduced to 10 men nine minutes after the interval when Mark Millar was shown a straight red card for a tackle from behind on John McGinn.
And Hibs made the extra man count when they opened the scoring in the 67th minute. Henderson got in behind the defence and cut the ball back for Gunnarsson to drill home.
They made sure of victory 12 minutes from the end when Cummings headed home his 25th goal of the season from Martin Boyle's cross.
