Hibernian old boy Dean Shiels ensured the Scottish Cup finalists' battle to avoid Clydesdale Bank Premier League relegation continues after Kilmarnock claimed a narrow 1-0 victory at Easter Road.

Hibs were dominant for long periods but it was Scottish Communities League Cup winners Killie who emerged victorious as Shiels converted a 44th-minute penalty against the run of play after Jorge Claros was adjudged to have brought down Liam Kelly.

Leigh Griffiths, who scored the William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final winner to set up next month's all-Edinburgh final, was lively for Hibs, but Pat Fenlon's side now hold a six-point advantage over bottom club Dunfermline with four games to play.
