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.”
