Rangers striker Walter Smith could be without striker Kenny Miller for the SPL title run- in after tweaking his hamstring against Celtic.
The experienced hit-man played a key role in Gers' 1-0 success over arch-rivals Celtic last Saturday, but is now a doubt to feature against Hibs on Wednesday.
Rangers need to maintain their winning run in order to regain top spot in the SPL table after the champions moved top once again with success over Dundee United on Tuesday.
With Miller struggling, Kyle Lafferty is the favourite to partner free-scoring Kris Boyd, although the likes of Andrius Velicka and Nacho Novo are both in contention.
"Kenny is a doubt for tomorrow with a recurrence of his hamstring problem. I'm hopeful if he gets a couple of days' rest he'll be okay for Saturday," explained Smith.
"It's blow because we were pleased with the way he played on Saturday and I was hoping he'd stay injury free until the end of the season when we could get it looked at again.
"But he's a bit sore and it looks like he'll miss out."
