Branescu back from ban for Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock goalkeeper Laurentiu Branescu returns from suspension for Sunday’s Ladbrokes Premiership clash with Hibernian at Rugby Park.

Defender Kirk Broadfoot is a doubt with a shoulder injury, while Harry Bunn will be absent again with a calf complaint.

Mohamed El Makrini is back in training after a recent knee problem, but Innes Cameron and Adam Frizzell are still confined to the treatment room with knee injuries.

Defenders Jason Naismith and Ryan Porteous, plus midfielder Stevie Mallan (all knee), remain out.
