Banned Nish misses Well clash

Striker Nish is suspended for three of Hibs’ next five matches for

kicking out at Saints defender Michael Duberry at McDiarmid Park.

Midfielder Kevin McBride is still missing with a hamstring injury,

while manager John Hughes – who will be on the touchline prior to

starting a six-game ban of his own on March 6 – may wield the axe

following the club’s heaviest defeat since he took charge. Hibs
