Hibernian go top of the Scottish Championship table after Raith stalemate

Hibernian's third-straight Championship draw was enough to see them move top of the table as they were held to a goalless stalemate by Raith at Stark's Park.

Hibs started to enjoy the majority of possession early on as John McGinn's near-post header was cleared off the line in their best first-half chance before team-mate Fraser Fyvie came close but sent Grant Holt's cross wide of the mark before Paul Hanlon headed past the post.

Hibernian were reduced to 10 men seven minutes before the break as Marvin Bartley was shown a straight red card for a foul on Bobby Barr.

Jason Cummings fired wide from outside the box for Hibs while - down at the other end - Barr and Ross Callachan had chances blocked before Kyle Benedictus's late header was held out as Neil Lennon's side went home with a point.
