Falkirk missing duo for Hibs clash

Last season's Championship runners-up Falkirk welcome a Hibernian side that finished third without Mark Kerr through suspension and Peter Grant with a knee injury.

Manager Peter Houston said: "This is a great game as both sides will come out looking to win and lay down a marker and Hibs will be exactly the same.

"We have done well against them in the last couple of seasons and it would be good to keep that going.

"Neil Lennon has come on board as the Hibs manager and he will fire them up, I'm sure about that, and we will need to handle that."

Neil Lennon takes charge of the Edinburgh side for the first time domestically and new signing, goalkeeper Ofir Marciano, is unlikely to be involved as international clearance has still to be received for the Israel international.

Danny Handling misses out with a knee injury.

Lennon said: "There is a lot of anticipation in the build-up to this game and I know that we are facing a formidable side. However, the players here feel they have a point to prove after losing to Falkirk in the play-offs.

"It will be a tough game but I feel that we have prepared in an excellent fashion and are ready to go."
