ST Mirren remain rooted to the bottom of the Premiership table after losing to Hibernian.  
A Simeon Jackson first half strike had Saints in front before second half goals from Oli Shaw and former Saints Darren McGregor and Stevie Mallan gave the capital side all three points.
The Buddies came into the game bottom of the table having lost four out of their last five league games, including Wednesday night’s 4-0 defeat to Celtic.
It’s been a crazy 48 hours for the Easter Road side amid reports of manager Neil Lennon being suspended and Eddie May and Grant Murray being put in charge of first team affairs. 
Five minutes in and the visitors had the first real chance with a free kick taken by Stevie Mallan but it was blocked and the resulting corner overhit. 
The home side were then awarded a foul themselves but Tansey’s delivery was cleared in a stop-start beginning to proceedings.
But, 25 minutes into the game and St Mirren went ahead as Jackson had the simple task of tapping in his fifth goal of the season after an excellent cross from Brad Lyons.
Jackson almost added a second moments later but a smothering save from Marciano denied him. 
And it stayed 1-0 to the hosts at half time, thanks to a save from Vaclav Hladký to deny Daryl Horgan. 
With just over half an hour remaining Ryan Gauld shot wide and then Kyle McAllister has a golden chance to double Saints advantage, but couldn't convert when through on goal.
Saints would be made to pay with Shaw finishing past Hladký a minute later.
Then McGregor gave Hibs the lead after Flo Kamberi’s effort from a corner was initially saved with 20 minutes left.
And with Saints pushing for the equaliser former Saints midfielder Mallan made the game safe.
Manager Oran Kearney was happy with the first hour and accepted Kyle McAllister’s miss was a turning point. 
He said: “It is a big opportunity for Kyle and one everyone in the stadium can see.
“It is harder for him as he thinks someone is coming behind him and decides to shift it left.
“I spoke to him and I will not hang him out to dry. I thought he was probably as good a player as we had on the pitch today.
“To be fair to him he didn’t let his head go down after it and he came on stronger.”
