Hibs captain Rob Jones could make his comeback from injury this Saturday, in the crucial SPL clash with Falkirk at Easter Road.

The 6ft 7in Hibs centre half has missed Hibs last two games, defeats to
Aberdeen (3-1) and Inverness Caledonian Thistle (2-0), and has been badly missed.

Jones, 27, has been out since picking up a groin problem in a training session prior to the
Aberdeen game.

He has returned to training this week, with no ill effects, and has been working with Hibs physio Colin McLelland to get back to fitness as the Hibees aim to get back to winning ways.

Hibs boss John Collins seemed confident that the player will make it and said:

"We'll see how Rob is today but at the moment it is looking very promising.

"There's no doubt we missed him at
Aberdeen, who had a big striker, less so at Inverness where young Darren McCormack did very well.

Falkirk have a few big strikers and they tend to play the ball long to start with and then play their football so it is important we win our headers."

Good to see the big man on his way back, we have sorely missed him this last few weeks, big Rob has become an important player for us.
