Hughes has given the Ivory Coast ace the weekend off after admitting to rushing him back from African Nations Cup duty, meaning Paul Hanlon will deputise.

Hibs could hand a debut to new signing Alan Gow, while Merouane Zemmama is over his recent hamstring problem and Graham Stack has recovered from a troublesome back injury.

Hibs (from): Smith, McCormack, Murray, Hogg, Hanlon, Miller, Cregg, Zemmama, McBride, Rankin, Stokes, Riordan, Byrne, Stevenson, Gow, Galbraith, Wotherspoon, Nish, Benjelloun, Thicot, Stack.
