Football - McPake banned for Hibs

Hibernian captain James McPake is suspended for the Scottish Premiership clash at Motherwell following his Edinburgh derby red card, giving caretaker manager Jimmy Nicholl a problem.

PA Sport Report

Nicholl is looking after the team after Pat Fenlon left on Friday and welcomes back striker Paul Heffernan who returns after being cup-tied for the defeat by Hearts and full-back Alan Maybury could come back after a thigh problem.

Sam Stanton (hip) and Tim Clancy (groin) are short of match fitness while Michael Nelson (eye socket) and Alex Harris (ankle) also remain on the sidelines.
