The Hibernian Development squad moved six points clear at the top of the SPFL Development League with a dramatic late winner against Celtic on Saturday.

Ryan Porteous scored twice in the final 10 minutes of the match, including an injury time diving header, at the Hibernian Training Centre.

Hibs had dominated the opening half, but only had an Oli Shaw effort to show for their superiority. The striker was initially denied from close range, but the ball rebounded and he nodded home ahead of the goalkeeper. 

Jack Aitchison equalised for the away side before Ewan Henderson, brother of Scottish Cup winner Liam, put them ahead with a fine finish.

Porteous powered home a header with around 10 minutes remaining after meeting a Fraser Murray free-kick to level the scores. 

And in the dying seconds of the match captain Porteous connected with a diving header after Shaw had kept a Fraser Murray corner alive to seal the victory for the Hibees.

Hibs are now six points clear of Dundee in second place, with Celtic sitting in eighth position, 17 points behind in the leaders with five games in hand.

Hibernian are in action on Wednesday of this week, taking on Hamilton Accies at the Superseal Stadium. Kick-off is at 2pm.
