Caretaker boss Billy Brown could be without Leigh Griffiths as he takes charge of Hibernian for the first time.

On-loan Wolves striker Griffiths has had a stomach bug this week, but is the only concern as Brown seeks to prove he can be the permanent successor to Colin Calderwood.

Captain Ian Murray, Callum Booth, Matt Thornhill, Michael Hart and Sean Welsh are all available following injuries.

Kilmarnock look set to be without David Silva.

Silva picked up a knock during a practice match earlier in the week and is likely to miss the trip to Easter Road.

Goalkeeper Cammy Bell is still out with an elbow injury, while long-term casualty Ryan O'Leary remains on the sidelines with cruciate ligament damage.

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

Kilmarnock (from): Jaakkola, McKeown, Hay, Fowler, Sissoko, Pursehouse, Harkins, Shiels, Buijs, Pascali, Kelly, Dayton, Heffernan, Kroca, Racchi, Letheren, Fisher, Galan.

'Costa Is A Bad Man. Suarez Is Not'
