Richie Towell is available again for Hibernian's game against Dunfermline.

The on-loan Celtic full-back was unavailable for the last two matches against his parent club.

Ian Murray (hip/groin) could miss out again, while Callum Booth, Matt Thornhill, Michael Hart and Sean Welsh are continuing their returns to fitness but the Pars clash is likely to come too soon.

Dunfermline have lost Gary Mason and Jason Thomson for the game.

Mason is suspended for two games after losing his appeal against the red card he received against Dundee United while Thomson faces several weeks out with a groin injury.

Joe Cardle (knee) could return while Liam Buchanan is back following illness but Martin Hardie, Kevin Rutkiewicz, Steven Bell, Nick Phinn and Andy Barrowman remain unavailable.

Hibernian (from): Stack, Murray, O'Hanlon, Hanlon, Sproule, Wotherspoon, Palsson, Osbourne, Scott, O'Connor, Sodje, Galbraith, Griffiths, Agogo, Brown, Stevenson, Stephens, Towell.

Dunfermline (from): Gallacher, McCann, Keddie, Dowie, Potter, Burns, Easton, Graham, R Thomson, Cardle, Kirk, Boyle, Willis, Byrne, Young, Buchanan, Clarke, Smith.
