SPROULE SET FOR SWIFT RECOVERY
Hibernian have allayed fears over a lengthy lay-off for winger Ivan Sproule after he was carried off with an ankle injury at Inverness on Sunday.
Sproule took a knock to the ankle towards the end of Hibs' 3-2 Clydesdale Bank Premier League win over Caley Thistle and ligament damage was feared.
But Hibs boss Pat Fenlon has revealed Sproule could return to training before the SPL visit of Motherwell on Sunday.
Fenlon told the club's official website: "The good news is that Ivan's injury is not as bad as we first feared it might be.
"He was obviously in a lot of pain when he came off the pitch, but fortunately the injury has responded to treatment and he could be back in training sooner rather than later."
