A round-up Championship news, latest results, statistics and a look ahead to this week's fixtures
Despite going 7 points clear at the top of the Championship table, Hibs boss Neil Lennon was highly critical of his players following the 1-1 draw at Raith Rovers on Saturday. Rovers had gone ahead with a goal from Ryan Stevenson - his first for the club. Top scorer Jason Cummings equalised with a supern free kick, but Lennon was angry with his team, saying: "We were an absolute disgrace. We totally disrespected the opponent. The overall performance, the lack of physicality, belief and urgency. I am not happy."
Second placed Dundee United were not in League action last weekend due to their Irn Bru Challenge Cup semi final against fellow Championship side Queen of the South. United won 3-2 and will face St Mirren in the final, after the Paisley Saints defeated Welsh side The New Saints 4-1 in the other semi final.
The other teams in the top 4, Morton and Falkirk, played each other and drew 2-2. Morton went 1-0 ahead through Thomas O'Ware - the defender's 10th goal of the season. Falkirk responded with goals from James Craigen and Aaron Muirhead to take the lead. Ex-Par Ross Forbes scored to rescue a point for Morton and keep them levels on points with Falkirk and with a game in hand.
With Dunfermline's game against Queen of the South postponed due to Queens' involvement in the Challenge Cup, the only other Championship game on Saturday was an eventful match at Dumbarton, where visitors Ayr United were reduced to 10 men after 27 minutes when Ross Docherty was sent off. Dumbarton then went 2-0 up with goals in 62 and 75 minutes from Sam Stanton. A win would have put Dumbarton into 6th place and 7 points ahead of Ayr, who occupy the 9th place relegation play-off position. However, Ayr scored twice in injury time through a 25 yard free kick from Michael Rose in the first minute of added on time, and then a penalty from Craig Moore 2 minutes later.
Ayr manager Ian McCall said: "I didn't see it coming. It says a lot that they never gave in. It could be an important point but we've got to turn draws into wins and to do that we've got to keep 11 men on the pitch." Ayr are still without a win in their last 14 League games, a sequence that includes 8 draws.
