Football - Nelson in line for Hibs bow

Former Kilmarnock defender Michael Nelson is set to make his Hibernian debut against Motherwell after being signed to fill a defensive void ahead of the Scottish Premiership opener.

PA Sport Report

Nelson signed from Bradford on Thursday night as James McPake (back), Tim Clancy (groin), Ryan McGivern (knee) and Jordon Forster (suspended) are all missing while young defender Bradley Donaldson is also out with a knock.

Hibs are also without suspended forward Rowan Vine and Paul Cairney (ankle) but new signing James Collins is set for his debut and midfielder Owain Tudur Jones has recovered from the knock that kept him out of the 7-0 defeat by Malmo.
