Hibernian have no fresh injury worries ahead of crucial Falkirk game

Hibernian have no fresh injuries as they prepare for Tuesday night's crucial Ladbrokes Championship clash with play-off rivals Falkirk.

But boss Alan Stubs - whose side are six points behind the Bairns with two games in hand - is still without four players ahead of the Easter Road clash.

Defender Liam Fontaine will sit out his fourth match in a row with a thigh strain, while striker Farid El Alagui continues to struggle with hamstring issues.

Midfielder Danny Carmichael has returned to light training after his recent groin troubles, while anchorman Dylan McGeouch should step up his recovery from a similar groin issue on Monday.

Falkirk have doubts over Paul Watson and Kevin O'Hara as they look to consolidate second place in Edinburgh.

A long-term knee injury keeps Peter Grant out while a broken leg is doing likewise for Conor McGrandles.

Manager Peter Houston said: "It was great to get back to winning ways by defeating an improving St Mirren side 3-1. We played well however we had faced a couple of setbacks in the game and we handled them well.

"We are in a good place in terms of points and want to build on that by getting something from this game."
