Hibs boss Terry Butcher has revealed that striker Paul Heffernan is facing six weeks on the sidelines.

The 31-year-old pulled up with a thigh strain only five minutes into Saturday's 0-0 draw with St Mirren in Paisley.

Butcher has now revealed that he could lose the former Killie man for as much as six weeks.

He said:

"It could be three to six weeks; we're not too sure yet; we're waiting on the results of a scan," Butcher told the club's official website. 

"It's unlucky for Paul but it gives other people, like James Collins, a chance to get into the team."
