Hibernian striker Leigh Griffiths looks set to return from injury for Saturday's SPL clash at Aberdeen.

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

Hibs manager Pat Fenlon said: "Leigh trained on Thursday. 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 and should take part again on Friday 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."
