After two draws against Hearts and St Mirren Hibs got back on winning ways against Falkirk with a goal in each half.
This victory brings Hibs unbeaten run to nine games.
The second goal came with only a few minutes left after a rather nervy second half which Falkirk had made a spirited fight.
Hibs did not really get going in this match and can thank Derek Riordan for being the main difference between the teams. He scored his first with the help of a deflection off the defenders shin but his second gave the goalkeeper no chace after Wotherspoon had delivered a tremendous cross which left the keeper stranded.
This win puts Hibs level on points with Rangers in second place two points behind Celtic. Us Hibs fans are in danger of getting vertigo being this high up the league, hopefully it will continue for a while yet.
