Dean Shiels handed Hibs the lead in the 57th minute when he latched onto Merouane Zemmama’s pass before rounding Lukasz Zaluska, but they could only hold it for three minutes.

Thierry Gathuessi was punished for a clumsy penalty-box challenge on Mark De Vries and Hunt sent the spot-kick into the top corner.

Both sides created numerous chances and Steven Fletcher missed the best opportunity to win an entertaining clash when Zaluska came off his line to save a one-on-one.

The draw suited Motherwell, who retain the third place in the Scottish Premier League that will secure a European spot and sit a point above their two rivals with two games in hand.
