Hibs have travelled to Switzerland for their second leg UEFA Europa Conference League third-round qualifiers in the hope of facing Premier League side Aston Villa in the play-offs.

The Easter Road side beat their Swiss opponents 3-1 in Edinburgh last week and will be hopeful of maintaining their two-goal lead on away soil. However, fans will be concerned after the Leith-based team fell flat against Motherwell on the weekend, recording their second-straight league squad but Hibs boss Lee Johnson is assured that his team will fight back.

Speaking in a pre-match press conference, Johnson said: “We quickly flip our mindset and there will be no complacency. I just know it. I know my team.We go into a big game where we have put ourselves in a positive position.

“We have to defend as a team, we have to attack as a team. I like to see eleven faces behind the ball and that’s what we want to do anyway to break from a position of strength. That’s really important - the activity and the partnerships between the lines. But, it’s a game of football, and a lot can happen.”

Team news

Hibs’ boss Johnson will be assessing the fitness of Elie Youan, Josh Campbell and Jake Doyle-Hayes. Youan has a back injury and Campbell is troubled by his shoulder and they missed the defeat at Fir Park, as did Doyle-Hayes.

Speaking in the pre-match press conference, Johnson said: “We will find out a bit more today. There are two or three that we are waiting on to see whether or not they have a chance to play, which is Elie, Josh and Jake. Josh gives you that fitness to be able to shut down.”
