Hibs head coach Alan Stubbs hoping for positive news on two attackers

Hibs head coach Alan Stubbs is hoping that Farid El Alagui will be available for their promotion push after the striker was struck by more injury woe.
The French-Moroccan was handed his first start in nearly a year in Tuesday’s 2-1 win over Livingston but was forced off after only 38 minutes with a hamstring strain.

Stubbs said: “I feel for anybody when they’ve been out and he got his first start against Livingston for a while.

 “Hopefully it’s not too serous and he’ll still have a big part to play in our season.
“Hopefully it’s only a couple of weeks at best, it didn’t look like it was a full pull.
“It just looked like he felt it so fingers-crossed it’s not too serious.”
Fellow forward Dan Carmichael, meanwhile, will undergo a MRI scan today in a bid to get to the bottom of a troublesome groin problem.
Stubbs added: “Dan has seen a surgeon and it was positive news.
“We are just waiting on Dan having a scan to determine and clarify whether there is a problem in another area.
“We don’t think so but we need the MRI. He’s had one operation and, if anything, it is just a discomfort.”
