Team News: Hibs vs Ross County

Shaun Maloney has made one change to his starting line-up for this afternoon’s cinch Premiership game against Ross County; 3pm kick-off at Easter Road.

That change has been enforced following an injury to left wing-back Demetri Mitchell. The 25-year-old came off against Arbroath in the Scottish Cup with an ankle injury.

He has been replaced by Josh Campbell who returns for his first start since our home game against St Mirren.

Elias Melkersen could make his Hibernian FC debut this afternoon; this is his second appearance in the match day squad.

Whilst, young Hibees Jacob Blaney and Oscar MacIntyre are on the bench for the first time! They have both been performing excellently for the U18s and provide us with defensive cover.

Maloney is without six senior players this afternoon through injury; Paul Hanlon, Paul McGinn, Harry Clarke, Joe Newell, Kyle Magennis and Demetri Mitchell.
