Iain Davidson back in Raith squad after head injury

Raith Rovers have Iain Davidson back in their squad after a bang to the head as they look to consolidate fourth place by defeating visitors Hibernian.

Missing from the Kirkcaldy squad will be the injured trio of David Bates (calf), Lewis Vaughan (knee) and Scott Robertson (groin), while Ross Laidlaw is struggling.

Manager Ray McKinnon said: "Hibs have had a busy schedule recently but I don't think that gives us any advantage as they have a big and talented squad. They bounced back from losing a cup final last weekend by knocking out the Scottish Cup holders in midweek.

"We have performed well against them this season without carrying much luck. Hopefully that will change."

Hibs midfielder Fraser Fyvie could return from a knee injury for the trip to Raith.

Paul Hanlon (knee) remains out while Dylan McGeouch and Dan Carmichael will see specialists about their injuries.

However, McGeouch's latest groin problem is settling down.

After three cup ties, head coach Alan Stubbs told Hibs TV: "It will be nice to get back to the league because it is our priority."
