Kilmarnock v Hibernian

Hibernian travel to Rugby Park for the Sunday kick-off, one point better off than Kilmarnock after two matches played.

Killie are hoping to complete the signing of Osasuna striker Jorge Galan in time for the arrival of the capital club. The Spanish under-21 international underwent a medical on Wednesday night, and the Ayrshire club are hopeful that the loan deal will be given international clearance by the weekend.

Meanwhile, Colin Calderwood has secured the signature of former Aston Villa midfielder, Isaiah Osbourne, on a two year deal.

Osbourne, who has spent time out on loan to Nottingham Forest, Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday, was released by Villa in the summer. Isaiah was handed his Villa debut by Martin O’Neill back in 2006, but failed to make an impression in the first team.

Full-back Michael Hart has been ruled out for, ‘a lengthy period’, after picking up a serious groin injury in the 1-1 friendly against Sunderland last weekend. The 31 year-old defender was forced to withdraw after just five minutes.

Prediction: Draw.
