Video: Jason Cummings’ Free-Kick Against Raith Today Was Stunning

Jason Cummings was the hero for Hibs as his stunning free-kick earned them a draw away at Raith Rovers.

The Hibees striker has been in some very impressive form of late, hitting seven goals in nine games before heading to Stark’s Park for today’s Championship clash.

Raith took the lead in John Hughes’ first game in charge of the club when Ryan Stevenson fired home in the 52nd minute.

A defeat wouldn’t have been a disaster for Neil Lennon’s Hibs side because they were leading the division by six points with a game in hand going into it.

But a draw on the road was welcome, with Cummings firing home his eighth in 10 games courtesy of a brilliant free-kick, which one fan caught on camera:

That had shades of Leigh Griffiths in his Hibs days.

The draw means the Easter Road side are now seven points ahead of second-placed Dundee United and perfectly placed to achieve promotion to the Premiership.
