Dabrowski: Starts again for Hibernian.

Edinburgh derby day hero Kevin Dabrowski has been handed another start for Hibernian for their game against St Mirren in Edinburgh.

Manager Shaun Maloney had hinted on Friday that the 23-year-old had done enough to keep his place despite the return of Matt Macey.

Hibs are still fighting to secure a top-six spot and could fall into the bottom half with defeat against the Paisley side on Saturday if Aberdeen and Dundee United both win.

Meanwhile, St Mirren themselves are only three points off the top-six and seven from the bottom two so will have their own ambitions in the capital after three wins and a draw from their previous four games.

Jim Goodwin’s men have yet to lose a game this year with wins over Dundee United, Ayr United and Aberdeen and a draw with Motherwell on Tuesday.

In contrast, Hibs have yet to win in the league this year with defeats to Celtic and Livingston and draws with Motherwell and Hearts.
