Hibs continued their pre-season bounce games with a 2-1 victory over Hamilton Academical at an empty Easter Road this afternoon.

Darren McGregor captained the team as Alex Gogic featured against his old club alongside fellow new signings Drey Wright and Kevin Nisbet.

Shortly before the break Joe Newell, who missed the end of last season with a heel injury, opened the scoring then Nisbet made it 2-0 on the stroke of half time.
