Hibs boss Paul Heckingbottom has provided an injury update on four Hibs stars.
The Hibees are currently 11th in the Premiership following a disappointing start to the season. They are currently missing key players like Martin Boyle, Darren McGregor Vykintas Slivka and David Gray through injury.
Whilst one looks likely return to soon, others are still a bit off first-team action judging Heckingbottom’s comments.
He told Edinburgh Live: “Vicky’s still feeling it. Boyler I had in to do some one-on-one coaching with him last Friday, so he’s progressing to get him back on the grass.
“He’s probably the closest. Darren’s progressing slowly but we’ll be led by his symptoms. David’s still in the gym at the minute.”
Boyle is close but Heckingbottom will miss other Hibs men through injury
The Australian may return to action in the near future, although it seems as if it won’t be in the next couple of weeks. Heckingbottom will be hoping to have Boyle back sooner rather than later.
As for Gray, McGregor and Slivka though, the Hibs boss may be without them for a longer period of time. His comments seem to indicate that progress is moving slowly with those three.
For now he’ll have to do without some of his influential stars. With the club currently in the relegation play-off spot, his primary focus will be to drag the Easter Road side away from the foot of the table.
It’s bittersweet news on the injury front though, which will make their league task a little harder.
