Kevin McBride is suspended and Danny Galbraith and Steven Thicot are doubts as Hibs go in search of a second-straight SPL win over Killie.

McBride will serve the first of a two-match ban for accumulating disciplinary points and winger Galbraith (back) and right-back Thicot (knock) could miss out against Killie, although neither began the 2-0 win over St Mirren which ended a 12-match winless run.

Graham Stack is set to continue in goal as manager Colin Calderwood operates a rotation policy, while Kevin McCann (knee) is the only confirmed absentee.

Kilmarnock will be without Frazer Wright for the game against Hibs.

The defender suffered concussion in the last game against Motherwell and has been advised to sit out the visit to Easter Road.

Garry Hay misses out through suspension but Craig Bryson will be added to the squad after recovering from an ankle problem and Jamie Hamill is back from suspension.

Hibernian (from): Stack, Divis, Hart, Hogg, Murray, Nish, Riordan, Rankin, Dickoh, Thicot, Stevenson, Duffy, Hanlon, Smith, Galbraith, Trakys, Wotherspoon, Thornhill, Brown, Miller, Towell, Scott, Palsson, Sodje.

Kilmarnock (from): Bell, Clancy, Fowler, Sissoko, Taouil, Berntsson, Pascali, Kelly, Eremenko, Rui Miguel, Aubameyang, Silva, Agard, Jaakkola, Gross, McKay, Bryson, Hamill.
