Hibs handed injury boost ahead of Ross County test
The Australian internationalist joined the Easter Road side on a short-term deal until the end of the season in January and has played a big part in the team reclaiming third spot from rivals Aberdeen.
He was forced off with a shoulder injury in the second half of the Capital club’s 2-0 victory over the Dons last weekend, sparking fears he may be sidelined for the meeting with the Staggies this weekend.
However, Hibs are expecting the 27-year-old to be available for selection as they seek a first win of the season against John Hughes' charges.
Irvine's midfield colleague Alex Gogic also appeared to suffer a knock in last weekend’s game but the Cypriot is also primed for inclusion with Hibs reporting no fresh injury concerns for the trip north.
