Recent signings Isaiah Osbourne, Phil Airey and Junior Agogo could all miss out for the hosts.
Osbourne suffered a knock in Saturday's 2-1 defeat by St Mirren, which Airey and Agogo both sat out with injuries. Airey has returned to Newcastle for treatment while Agogo is doubtful but should be fit for Sunday's Edinburgh derby.
Teenage defender Scott Smith comes into the squad while Sean O'Hanlon will play after recovering from a broken toe.
Hibs (from): Stack, Palsson, Booth, Hanlon, O'Hanlon, Murray, Stephens, Smith, Wotherspoon, Galbraith, Scott, Thornhill, Stevenson, Sproule, O'Connor, Sodje, Crawford, Brown.
