Goalkeeper Ofir Marciano available for Hibernian's clash with Morton

Hibernian are at home to Morton and the Edinburgh side are finally available to field new goalkeeper Ofir Marciano after work permit issues were resolved.

Fraser Fyvie is available to start after injury but Liam Fontaine is out with a calf problem and Danny Handling remains absent due to a knee complaint.

Manager Neil Lennon said: "Morton are unbeaten in all their games so far and that shows what a tough nut they are to crack. They have nothing to lose and the onus will be on us to break them down.

"We will look to do that and make it four consecutive wins in a very competitive league."

Morton miss Conor Pepper due to a knee injury picked up when the Greenock side won 3-0 at Easter Road in February however Mark Russell is available after illness.

Manager Jim Duffy said: "That was a great win but it was a long time ago and a lot has changed at Hibs since then.

"This is one of our biggest games of the season and I want our players to go out and enjoy the game but be competitive.

"They are the favourites for this game and for the league but I want the Morton squad to go out and make life very difficult for Hibs."
