Akpo Sodje and Sean O'Hanlon could return for Hibernian against St Mirren.

Sodje has missed the start of the campaign with a knee injury, while O'Hanlon has been absent after breaking a toe in a friendly at Blackpool three days after the opening SPL loss to Celtic.

Michael Hart (groin) and Sean Welsh (cheekbone) remain out.

Former Holland Under-19 defender Illias Haddad could make his St Mirren debut at Hibs after signing following a successful trial.

Nigel Hasselbaink completes his two-match suspension, while Darren McGregor (knee) and Aaron Mooy (back) remain on the sidelines along with Hugh Murray (knee), although the latter has been making good progress.

David Barron may be in the squad but is unlikely to feature as he builds up his fitness, while Steven Thomson could return from illness.

Hibernian (from): Stack, Brown, Booth, Hanlon, O'Hanlon, Murray, Stephens, Taggart, Smith, Wotherspoon, De Graaf, Galbraith, Scott, Thornhill, Stevenson, Sproule, Palsson, Osbourne, Horner, Airey, O'Connor, Agogo, Sodje, Caldwell.

St Mirren (from): Samson, Van Zanten, Tesselaar, McAusland, Mair, Goodwin, Haddad, McGowan, Teale, Thomson, Thompson, McQuade, McLean, McShane, McKernon, Carey, Barron, McQuade, Smith.
