Killie are likely to have an unchanged squad for the visit of Hibs.

Defender Steven Old has finished his loan spell with Cowdenbeath but has picked up an injury.

James Dayton and Alan Combe remain on the long-term injury list.

Hibs have no fresh concerns as they prepare to travel to Killie for their first SPL fixture in three weeks.

Hibs were last in action in the 0-0 draw with St Johnstone on November 27, a match Valdas Trakys missed due to a knock and Derek Riordan and Paul Hanlon sat out due to suspension. All three are available for the trip to Rugby Park.

Darryl Duffy (foot), Graham Stack (back) and Merouane Zemmama (knee) are back in training but are unlikely to return to competitive action until early in the new year.

Kilmarnock (from): Bell, Fowler, Wright, Gordon, Hamill, Taouil Silva, Bryson, Pascali, Kelly, Eremenko, Sammon, Clancy, Letheren, Hay, Forrester, Owens, Invincibile.

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.
