Hibs received a massive boost ahead of a difficult trip to Aberdeen today, when manager Tony Mowbray revealed that injured trio Scott Brown, David Murphy & Gary Smith will ALL travel to Pittodrie.

Brown has been out since damaging his knee ligaments in the 0-0 home tie with Dnipro in the Uefa Cup and wasn't expected back for another 2 weeks, but has surprised everyone by coming back into contention for Saturday's game.

Murphy was injured last Friday, in training the night before the 4-2 win over Kilmarnock, he failed a fitness test on the morning of the game having injured his knee, but is now back to full fitness.

Gary Smith also injured his knee in the home tie of the Uefa Cup game with Dnipro and formed a formidable partnership with young Chris Hogg in the centre of defence before his injury, it will be good to have his experience back in the side.

C'Mon The Hi-Bees!!
