James Penrice and Morgan Boyes are both closing in on a return from injury but are unlikely to be involved this weekend.

Tom Parkes is set to be sidelined for the majority of the season with a knee injury.

Hibs will have attacker Jair Tavares available after he missed last Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Hearts through suspension.

Josh Campbell is likely to miss out after going off in the second half of the Edinburgh derby with a knock, while manager Lee Johnson must decide whether to start Martin Boyle, who is still short of match fitness following his return from Saudi Arabia last weekend.
