Martin Boyle marked his second start since injury with a double for Hibernian while Lyndon Dykes was also on the scoresheet in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.

Martin Boyle scored Hibernian’s first two goals in their 3-0 win over Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.

Boyle broke the deadlock in the 52nd minute after a scoreless first-half, before added a second in the 68th minute.

He also got the assist for Florian Kamberi’s goal to make it 3-0 in the 74th minute, before being replaced with quarter of an hour to go.

Hibs boss Jack Ross said: “He’s (Boyle) a really good player. He’s quick but is also a good footballer, he helped us.

"He is a terrific character and has desire to do well. He is a good all-round footballer as well as being quick."

Elsewhere in the Scottish top flight, Lyndon Dykes netted in Livingston’s 3-0 victory over Kilmarnock.

Dykes scored his side’s second goal in the 65th minute before getting an assist for his side’s third goal.
