Ross Co v Hibernian preview

Ross County manager Derek Adams has several fitness issues to assess ahead of their Scottish Premiership relegation battle with Hibernian.

Michael Tidser missed Saturday's 1-0 defeat St Mirren after going off injured the week before while skipper Richard Brittain went off in Paisley after suffering from an ongoing problem.

Adams revealed a few unnamed players picked up knocks on Saturday but he is hopeful everyone will recover in time for Tuesday night's game.

Hibernian will be without suspended defender Michael Nelson for the trip to Victoria Park.

Defender Nelson must sit out the match after he was dismissed in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock.

Jordan Forster could fill the void in the back-line, while club captain James McPake is also a possible replacement as he nears a return from a long-standing back complaint.

Kevin Thomson, however, is a fitness doubt for the match - which could seal Hibs' survival if they win - with a thigh strain, while Paul Heffernan (thigh) and Paul Hanlon (knee) are both out for the season.
