Hibs defender Chris Hogg in race to be fit for Kilmarnock clash

Last updated : 29 September 2007 By Steve Forbes

Hibs defender Chris Hogg is facing a race against time to face Kilmarnock at Easter Road tomorrow afternoon.

The former England Youth captain picked up a hip injury in Wednesday night's CIS Cup 3rd round defeat to Motherwell. Hogg was taken off and replaced by Kevin McCann.

Hibs boss John Collins has rated the centre half as having a "slightly less than 50/50" chance of making the game.


Coming in to contention tomorrow will be Scotland U19 captain Darren McCormack as well as German U-21 international Torben Joneleit (above), on loan from French side Monaco.

McCormack & Joneleit partnered each other in the 2-0 CIS Cup 2nd round win over
Queens Park at Hampden and look assured. Both players will fight it out to partner Rob Jones in the centre of defence if Chris Hogg fails to make it.
