Hibs’ Head Coach Neil Lennon is hoping that the loss of top scorer Jason Cummings will not have an adverse affect on the result of today’s game against Dumbarton at Easter Road.

Cummings was sent off after receiving two yellow cards against Dundee United last Friday night but Lennon insists that his team contains plenty other players who are more than capable of scoring.

He also revealed that other first team squad players are returning to fitness ahead of two important home games against Falkirk and Morton.

Speaking to Hibernian TV, Lennon said: “Jason’s (Cummings) goals have been unbelievable. It was a silly sending off but he did win the game for us and he is a difficult player for us to replace but we have Keatings, Graham, Holt, Boyle, Shinnie and McGinn who all have goals in them so hopefully it won’t be too big a loss.

“Paul Hanlon is coming on well and hopefully he will be able to train with us on Monday Dylan (McGeouch) has been training with us for a week but he hasn’t played a great deal of football in that time but he may come into contention for a place in the squad.

“Chris Humphrey is not a million miles away as well but we have the suspensions of Jason and Fraser (Fyvie) so to have players coming back is very timely.”
