Hibernian v Aberdeen preview

Hibernian boss Terry Butcher has no fresh injury worries ahead of Monday night's Scottish Premiership clash with Aberdeen at Easter Road.

The home side are already without defender Paul Hanlon, who will miss the rest of the season after damaging knee cartilage.

And James McPake will join his fellow-defender on the sidelines for the remainder of the campaign as he continues his recovery from a back problem.

But Butcher has not given up hope that long-term absentee Scott Robertson (knee) could feature again this season as Hibs look to steer clear of the relegation play-off position.

Aberdeen came through the midweek draw with Hearts unscathed and will return to the capital with an unchanged squad.

Former Celtic midfielder Barry Robson is included in boss Derek McInnes' travelling party despite being taken off at Tynecastle due to a stomach bug.

Winger Jonny Hayes is still recovering from a broken collarbone, but McInnes is hopeful the Irishman will return before the end of the season.
