Hibs set for triple injury boost

McPake, Clancy and Deegan on the road to recovery

Hibs boss Pat Fenlon has been handed a massive triple boost heading into this weekend's trip to face Dundee at Dens Park.

Captain James McPake and fellow defender Tim Clancy are both expected to be passed fit for the trip.

McPake missed out on Sunday's 2-1 win over Dundee Utd, after he suffered a back spasm before the game.

While Clancy missed his second game in a row, suffering from a stomach muscle injury.

Hibs coped well without the pair however, with Maybury coming in at right back, Lewis Stevenson on the left, and the impressive McGivern switching to the centre.

It gives Fenlon a bit of a (good) selection headache.

Fenlon said:

"We did not want to take a chance with James and lose him for longer.

"Both James and Tim have done a bit of training and we'll see how they are as the week progresses."

In further good news for Hibs, Fenlon revealed that Gary Deegan had started some light training following a broken jaw, after he was assaulted whilst on a night out on the city's notorious George Street.

Fenlon added:

"Gary has had a bit of good news from the doctors. He can start doing some light stuff from today with the fitness coach. We'll see how that goes and take it from there into the more strenuous stuff."
