Colin Nish remains a doubt for the hosts. The striker suffered an ankle injury in scoring during the 4-2 loss at Aberdeen in Colin Calderwood's first match in charge and missed last Saturday's 1-0 loss at Dundee United.

Hearts winger Suso Santana is expected to be fit for the Edinburgh derby.

Santana missed two days of training following last Sunday's 3-0 loss at home to Kilmarnock but returned on Wednesday.

Jefferies has no other fresh concerns, with Andrew Driver (thigh), David Obua (groin) and Lee Wallace (knee) still absent.

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

Hearts (from): Kello, Barr, Bouzid, Zaliukas, Stevenson, Palazuelos, Templeton, Elliot, Elliott, Santana, Balogh, Kyle, Jonsson, Mrowiec, J Thomson, C Thomson, Skacel, Novikovas.
