Hibernian manager Colin Calderwood is confident striker Akpo Sodje will be fit for the Edinburgh derby with Hearts.
The 31-year-old marksman was a notable absentee from Monday's 2-1 friendly victory over Bohemians at Easter Road.
Calderwood has confirmed Sodje picked up a knock recently in training, however, he believes he will be fit to face Hearts on 3rd April.
"Akpo took a wee knock in training at the end of last week but he will be okay for the Hearts game," confirmed Calderwood.
Calderwood used 18 players in the game and he was pleased with the work out, stating that Ricardo Vaz Te suffered from a touch of cramp.
"We got enough out of it," Calderwood continued.
"We gave almost 45 minutes to everyone and one or two who had not had 90 minutes for a while played a bit longer.
"Vaz Te was played just to see how long he could last but he wasn't injured, just cramp."
