Nish doubtful for Hibs
Colin Nish remains a doubt as Hibernian host Hearts in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League on Sunday.
Striker Nish suffered an ankle injury in scoring during the 4-2 loss at Aberdeen in Colin Calderwood's first match in charge and missed last Saturday's 1-0 loss at Dundee United.
David Wotherspoon should be fit to return after missing out at Tannadice, with Graham Stack (back), Darryl Duffy (metatarsal) and Merouane Zemmama (knee) still out.
Calderwood has had supporters from both sides of the capital welcome him to Edinburgh ahead of the derby, where he will aim to put a smile on faces in Leith.
Calderwood takes charge of Hibs at Easter Road for the first time, having seen his side beaten in two away games since he succeeded John Hughes as boss.
The former Scotland defender will be seeking to become an instant success with Hibs fans in the north of the city, having had many well-wishers since his appointment last month.
Hearts fans have also been keen to make Calderwood's acquaintance.
"Predominantly it's been Hibernian fans who have said hello to me," said Calderwood.
"There have been a number who have said good luck and wished me well 'but I'm a Hearts fan'.
"I don't know what type of confession that is."
Calderwood is delighted with the application of his charges since he has come in and believes further collective improvement could earn a third win of the season, giving Hibs fans something to be happy about.
"We've got to make sure we know what our individual and unit jobs are and try to get a result that we're all after and put a smile on all Hibernian faces on Sunday afternoon," said Calderwood.
The players have been working hard to prove themselves to Calderwood in training.
"The more time you spend with them, the better you understand them," said the manager.
"You can see there's an edge to them and it must be because the Hearts game is coming up.
"They're very willing to impress and work hard in training."
Hearts winger Suso Santana is expected to be fit.
Santana missed two days of training following last Sunday's 3-0 loss at home to Kilmarnock but returned on Wednesday.
Boss Jim Jefferies has no other fresh concerns, with Andrew Driver (thigh), David Obua (groin) and Lee Wallace (knee) still absent.
Jefferies expects a positive showing from his Hearts side, believing his players should need no extra motivation to respond to last week's setback.
Hearts were distinctly second best against Killie and missed the opportunity to climb into third place in the SPL.
An unchanged side saw a two-match winning run ended by Killie, but Jefferies believes local bragging rights for the winners will be incentive enough for his side.
"We had a word on Monday and that was the end of it - pretty strong words, but there's no point harping on," said Jefferies.
"They were disappointed with their display.
"The same players just didn't perform on the day, didn't pass the ball well enough, didn't apply themselves good enough.
"By winning this Sunday, that would be the best way to shake it off and it should make the players more determined to bounce back.
"That's the only way we'll get it right - if we go and play well on Sunday and get a result.
"What you look for is a response - and what better way to get a response.
"I've said many times, if you need to be motivated or lifted by a game like this then you shouldn't be playing football.
"This is an easy one for the managers, because the players will be determined in both camps to get a result."
Jefferies has appeared in the derby as player and manager on many occasions but he will be crossing swords with Calderwood for the first time.
"It's Colin's first home game, so everyone will be up for it," Jefferies said.
"The first game he had only been in for a couple of days, but the week he had to work with his players he made them much more difficult to break down in the second game.
"They could've won the game if they scored the penalty, but they lost it.
"There's been an improvement.
"Any manager coming in gives the team a lift, a bit of freshness.
"They'll be difficult on Sunday, we know that.
"It's only his third game, but it will be a game both camps - managers, players, supporters - all want to win."
Hearts take derby spoils
David Templeton and Stephen Elliott were on target as Hearts defeated Hibernian 2-0 in the Edinburgh derby at Easter Road.
Templeton held off the challenge of three would-be tacklers as he cut in off his left wing before tucking in the 19th-minute opener for the visitors and Stephen Elliott netted a second from close range after 67 minutes.
Captain Derek Riordan was sent off after 88 minutes for a crude challenge on Rudi Skacel as Colin Calderwood's first home match in charge ended in defeat, leaving Hibs alongside St Mirren at the foot of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League table.
Referee Willie Collum was in charge of a second high-profile derby in a matter of weeks, but avoided controversy after being criticised for his officiating in last month's Old Firm derby by Celtic manager Neil Lennon.
However, there were two flares thrown on to the pitch and numerous coins in incidents which may be brought to the Scottish Football Association's attention.
Lennon was in attendance at Easter Road and will be fully aware of the danger posed by Templeton when his side travel to Tynecastle on Wednesday.
After Hibs - unchanged from the 1-0 loss at Dundee United - began on the attack without threatening Marian Kello in the visitors' goal, Templeton issued a warning for what was to come.
The 21-year-old winger - one of three changes to the starting XI from last week's 3-0 loss to Kilmarnock - cut in off the left flank and fired a right-foot shot from 25 yards straight at Mark Brown in the Hibs goal as the visitors had their first opportunity after 16 minutes.
But three minutes later he had put Hearts in front with a stunning solo goal.
Templeton picked up the ball in the left channel and shrugged off the challenge of Danny Galbraith, Michael Hart and Sol Bamba as he cut in on a diagonal run.
His pace carried him into the area before he tucked a right-foot finish low into Brown's goal.
The goal was greeted with Hearts fans throwing two flares on to the pitch, with proceedings delayed for around two minutes before they were extinguished by stewards.
Hearts looked the more likely to add to their advantage, but as Templeton's pace troubled Hibs once more, his run was brought to an abrupt end by De Graaf, the Hibs midfielder booked for the cynical foul.
Elliott then raced on to Kevin Kyle's through ball, but could not get the decisive touch under pressure from Jonathan Grounds and Paul Hanlon.
John Rankin spurned numerous free-kick opportunities, while Hibs striker Riordan opted to take the final set piece of the first half and too failed to find a team-mate.
Rankin was replaced at the interval by Lithuania striker Valdas Trakys, but still Hibs' set-pieces were poor, with Kello untroubled.
Kyle and Trakys wrestled with each other in the area following a Riordan free-kick with Hearts winning possession and Collum adjudging the challenge to be fair.
Skacel then shot acrobatically off target from Black's centre, with Elliott also looking to play the ball as Hearts spurned the chance of a second after 57 minutes.
David Wotherspoon replaced Galbraith as Calderwood looked for fresh attacking impetus after 66 minutes.
But immediately it was Hearts who scored as Kyle knocked down a long ball forward, Templeton centred and Elliott netted into the bottom corner.
Ismael Bouzid headed wide from Eggert Jonsson's cross as Hearts continued to press forward.
Kyle was booked for throwing the ball into an advertising board after winning a throw-in and Collum was handed what appeared to be a coin thrown from the Hibs section of fans.
Ryan Stevenson was introduced for Templeton after 80 minutes, with Hibs fans also beginning to leave the action, their side seemingly short of ideas.
Ian Murray was introduced for Lewis Stevenson as Calderwood made his third change after 84 minutes.
Elliot came on for goalscorer Elliott with four minutes remaining before Hart was penalised for hand ball after grappling with Ryan Stevenson on the left wing.
Riordan was shown a straight red card for a terrible challenge which pole-axed Skacel two minutes from time.
More coins were thrown as Skacel received treatment as Hibs were left to contemplate a record of two wins from 14 games this season.
