Hibernian v Inverness preview

Striker Garry O’Connor could return from a toe injury for Hibs.

O’Connor missed the 3-1 loss at Dundee United as Leigh Griffiths,

whose loan deal Hibs are seeking to extend beyond January 9, was

forced to plough a lone furrow up front. Midfielder Isaiah Osbourne

remains out with an abductor injury. Inverness will assess the

fitness of Andrew Shinnie and Ross Tokely ahead of the clash. Both

have a chance of overcoming calf injuries but they will not be

risked with another important game against St Johnstone to come on

Monday. Aaron Doran could make his comeback from a shoulder injury

and Josh Meekings returns to the squad but Aidan Chippendale, David

Proctor and Owain Tudur Jones remain on the sidelines. Hibernian
