Michael Hart is a doubt as Hibernian prepare to face Second Division side Ayr.

Right-back Hart has not trained this week due to illness and could join Graham Stack (back) in missing out, but Merouane Zemmama and Darryl Duffy, who made his first Hibs start at Tynecastle, will continue to be involved.

Sol Bamba's departure to Leicester means Francis Dickoh and Paul Hanlon are set to continue in central defence, while Liam Miller is available despite picking up a yellow card in last Saturday's Edinburgh derby defeat at Hearts which means he is suspended for the next two Clydesdale Bank Premier League games.

Hibs (from): Brown, Wotherspoon, Hogg, De Graaf, Rankin, Hanlon, Zemmama, Trakys, Stevenson, Galbraith, Dickoh, Grounds, Miller, Duffy, Murray, Smith, Nish, Riordan, Hart.
