Hibs Midfield Dynamo Dean Shiels OUT Of CIS Cup Final!!

Last updated : 08 March 2007 By Steve Forbes

Hibs received a MASSIVE blow ahead of next week's CIS League Cup Final against Kilmarnock, when it was revealed that midfielder Dean Shiels has been ruled out of making a comeback from injury in time.

Shiels has been struggling with a thigh injury for weeks and it now appears his cup dream is over.

Hibs boss John Collins was disappointed with the news and said:

"Dean is doing a lot better, he is a quick healer and he's ahead of schedule a bit. Unfortunately for him and us, he's still not training and it looks as if it will still be a few weeks. So, sadly, he's definitely out of the final".
