Hibs are back in action this weekend after the international break with their penultimate fixture before the split.
Tam Courts’ Dundee United side are the visitors. Hibs won the last meeting between the sides and put in their best performance under Shaun Maloney in the 3-1 win at Tannadice in December.
The Hibs boss is still without several options in his first team squad. Ryan Porteous starts the first of his four-game suspension after his sending off against Aberdeen a fortnight ago.
He joins the likes of Kevin Nisbet, Matt Macey, Kyle Magennis and Demi Mitchell, who are all out injured, in being unavailable for this contest.
Sylvester Jasper and Josh Campbell are doubts after picking up knock over the international break.
January signing Harry Clarke has returned to training but this game could come too soon for the Arsenal loanee.
