Hibs interim boss David Gray is hopeful he hasn’t lost any more players to injury after seeing two of his squad forced off during the 1-0 victory over St Mirren at the SMiSA Stadium on Saturday.

Wingback Chris Cadden, who has been one of the Easter Road side’s most consistent performers this season, was forced off midway through the first half while James Scott limped off during the second period.

Speaking afterwards, Gray seemed hopeful that neither injury was of the serious variety, with six players already sidelined for the foreseeable.

"James Scott was just a bit of fatigue, so I'm sure he'll be absolutely fine,” Gray explained.

“He's not played a lot of football recently, so it's been great to see him the last two games. He's done really well and he's just fatigued a little bit.”

The on-loan Hull forward started against Hearts in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden last weekend and kept his place in the starting XI for the trip to Paisley.

Scott hasn’t started consecutive games for Hibs since August / September, when he led the line in a 2-2 draw against Dundee before keeping his place for a 2-0 home win against Livingston and a goalless draw at Tynecastle against Hearts.

Gray admitted that it was too early to make a call on Cadden’s injury.

"With Cadds, it's very early to say; he came off holding his thigh which is never nice but hopefully it's not too bad and he should be okay.”
