Inverness midfielder Russell Duncan returns for the game after recovering from a groin strain.

Gil Blumenshtein (hamstring) and Shane Sutherland (tonsillitis) are also back in contention while Lee Cox is pushing for a start after making a staggered comeback from an ankle problem.

But David Proctor, Chris Innes (both hamstring) and Kenny Gillet (knee) are not expected to make the squad and Kevin McCann misses out under the terms of his loan agreement.

Derek Riordan is set to play his final match before suspension as Hibs travel north to Inverness.

Riordan was sent off in the Edinburgh derby and will be banned for the November 27 meeting with St Johnstone but is free to play at Caley Thistle as Hibs seek a third straight win.

Colin Nish (ankle) and Francis Dickoh (cheekbone) are available, but David Wotherspoon (groin/back) is a doubt, while Darryl Duffy (foot), Graham Stack (back) and Merouane Zemmama (knee) are still out.

Inverness (from): Esson, Tokely, Munro, Cox, Shinnie, Duff, Hayes, Ross, Foran, Rooney, Odhiambo, Sutherland, Golabek, McBain, Tuffey, Morrison, Duncan, Sanchez.

Hibernian (from): Brown, Wotherspoon, Hogg, Bamba, De Graaf, Miller, Rankin, Hanlon, Thicot, Trakys, Stevenson, Galbraith, Dickoh, Grounds, McBride, Murray, Smith, Stephens, Nish, Riordan, Hart, Horner.
