The Republic of Ireland international striker has emerged as a transfer target for Celtic ahead of Tuesday's deadline.

The Edinburgh side will definitely be without goalkeeper Graham Stack because of a back injury and full-back Michael Hart, who damaged his hamstring in last weekend's meeting with Rangers, but Derek Riordan is expected to be passed fit after sustaining a knee injury in the 3-0 defeat to the Light Blues.

Midfielder Kevin McBride, controversially sent off against the SPL champions, is suspended but defender Ian Murray is free to return after serving a two-match ban.

Hibs (from): Brown, Wotherspoon, Hogg, Bamba, Murray, De Graaf, Miller, Rankin, Nish, Riordan, Stokes, G Smith, Hanlon, Galbraith, Thicot, Stevenson, Stephens, Currie.
