FT: Dundee Utd 1-2 Hibs
Republic of Ireland U19 international Cody Mullhall was taken to hospital following his injury, and although an x-ray shows no fractures or brakes, the youngster is expected back at the hospital today to assess wether he has suffered ligament damage to his ankle.
A big blow for Mullhall, considering his explosive start in the green and white since signing for the Hibees in the summer.
First team players Fraser Mullen, Paul Cairney and Danny Handling all got valuable game time.
Mullen has been out the picture the last few weeks at first team level, while both Cairney and Handling are on their way back from long term injuries.
