Jennings back in Well contention

Steve Jennings (ankle) will return to the Motherwell squad for Saturday’s SPL clash with Hibs after missing the draw against Dundee United.

Shaun Hutchinson (hamstring) and Chris Humphrey (ankle) remain on the sidelines while Marc Fitzpatrick and Darren Smith are continuing their rehabilitation programmes.

Paul Slane has suffered a minor niggle in his bid to return from two operations on his lower leg but Motherwell are confident he will be back over the festive period.

Motherwell (from): Ruddy, Moutaouakil, Hammell, Reynolds, Saunders, Hateley, Forbes, Coke, O’Brien, Murphy, Sutton, Jutkiewicz, Craigan, Jennings, Lasley, McHugh, Page, Fraser.
