Anthony Stokes marked his Hibernian return with a goal in a 3-1 victory over St Mirren at Easter Road in the Scottish Championship.

Hibs took the lead in the 10th minute when on-loan Celtic midfielder Liam Henderson curled a 25-yard free-kick into the top corner.

They doubled their advantage a minute before the break, John McGinn slotting into the bottom corner past keeper Jamie Langfield.

Saints reduced the deficit in first-half injury time as Stephen Mallan bent a free-kick into the bottom corner from 20 yards.

Paul Hanlon and McGinn had efforts cleared off the line before substitute Stokes, signed on loan from Celtic this week, wrapped up the points in the final minute with a close-range strike.
