Hibernian striker Leigh Griffiths is in line to return for Saturday's Scottish Premier League clash at Aberdeen.

Griffiths: Set to face Aberdeen

The on-loan Wolves striker, who has scored five goals in six SPL games this season, missed last weekend's draw against Inverness with an ankle injury but has returned to training.

Manager Pat Fenlon said: "He has trained today. Monday and Tuesday he did some work individually with the physio out on the park and he came through that.

"He took part in the whole training session this morning and should take part again in the morning, so unless there is a reaction to that he should be okay."

Fenlon should have a full squad available for the Pittodrie trip, other than long-term absentee Danny Galbraith.

"We've got plenty of options now all over the park with Shefki Kuqi, Tom Taiwo's fitness levels are getting better, and Ryan McGivern coming in," Fenlon said.

"It gives me a different headache to try to pick a team and a bench.

"That's what we want, we want players who are in the team knowing that they have to stay on their toes and perform to a level that keeps them in the team."
