Hamilton v Hibernian preview

Date published: Friday 6th May 2011 2:43

Hamilton captain Alex Neil is suspended for the game.

The 29-year-old midfielder signed a new three-year deal with the Lanarkshire club on Thursday but will have to watch from the stand after being sent off against St Mirren last week.

Defender David Elebert is back after recovering from a hamstring and Conner McGlinchey, from the under-19s, will be added to the squad.

Ian Murray, Danny Galbraith and Michael Hart will miss out for Hibs and will be absent for the final three games of the season.

Galbraith returned from an ankle problem last week but will now be rested in order to recuperate for next season, while Murray and Hart will also be given extra time to rest, with the 2011/12 SPL season beginning on July 23.

Graham Stack (shoulder) and Matt Thornhill (knee) remain out.

Hamilton (from): Cerny, McLaughlin, Buchanan, Elebert, Elliott, McDonald, McAlister, Carrington, Antoine-Curier, McGlinchey, Crawford, Mensing, Imrie, Hasselbaink, Chambers, Murdoch, Hendrie, Gillespie, Kilday.

Hibs (from): Brown, Thicot, Dickoh, Hanlon, Booth, Miller, Palsson, Wotherspoon, Scott, Vaz Te, Sodje, Riordan, Nish, Stevenson, Stephens, Duffy, Divis, Trakys, McCann.

Gary McDonald is doubtful for Hamilton.

McDonald has been rated as 50-50 with a neck injury ahead of the visit of the Edinburgh club.

Martin Canning is still out with a knock and Marco Paixao (knee), Alex Neil (hip) and James Gibson (knee) also remain on the sidelines.

Simon Mensing remains in contention after it emerged today he had served a four-week suspension for failing a drug test before his return at the weekend.

Ian Murray returns from suspension for Hibs.

Murray served a two-match ban as Hibs extended their run to four successive wins but the captain could make an immediate return in midfield.

Danny Galbraith (ankle) remains a major doubt, while Steven Thicot (hip/thigh) and Michael Hart (knee) are out, along with long-term absentee Kevin McCann (knee).

Hamilton (from): Cerny, Elebert, McLaughlin, McDonald, Graham, Skelton, Mensing, McAlister, Routledge, Antoine-Curier, Casalinuovo, Imrie, F Paixao, Carrington, Hasselbaink, Buchanan, Murdoch, Crawford.

Hibernian (from): Stack, Smith, Dickoh, Towell, Hanlon, Booth, Wotherspoon, Nish, Riordan, Rankin, Murray, Stevenson, Duffy, Galbraith, Trakys, Thornhill, Brown, Miller, Scott, Palsson, Sodje.
