Jack Ross has provided an update on the fitness of Jamie Murphy, Drey Wright and Lewis Stevenson ahead of Hibs‘ weekend date with Hearts.
The Hibees won 1-0 away to Kilmarnock on Saturday thanks to a Kevin Nisbet penalty. Murphy and Wright weren’t available for the match whilst Stevenson was hooked with injury.
He was then spotted with a protective boot after his exit from play at Rugby Park. It was a worry for fans ahead of a Scottish Cup semi-final with rivals Hearts on Saturday evening.
But Ross provided a hopeful update on all three after Hibs’ latest Premiership success. He says he hopes to have at least one of Murphy and Wright available, whilst Stevenson’s boot is just a precaution.
“I’m hopeful of having them [Murphy and Wright] fit,” said Ross. “We hope that them not being available for Kilmarnock has given them an opportunity and I’d like to think we’d have at least one of them, if not both of them, available.
“We’ll see how the week progresses, but I would be confident I would have more options to me.
“Lewis rolled his ankle towards the end of the first half. Lewis is a proper warrior and if he’s able to be fit then he will be, but we will see how it settles down.”
