Just barely 60 seconds into the match, Wanyama could have grabbed his third goal in as many games when he flicked Twardzik's free-kick goal wards but Ben Williams managed to get a vital touch to turn his header behind.

Wanyama, who is quickly asserting himself with his aerial prowess, came close again with another header in the 12th minute which went wide before he was substituted in the 45th minute making way for teenager Irvine Jackson.

The Hoppers now lie second in the Scottish league standings with 8 points, one point behind leaders Motherwell. Hibernain are third with  8 points though with an inferior goal difference.
