With the chaotic situation created before the departure of trainer Lennon and Hibs that remain five points under top-six line after only one win in last eight rounds I don't see hosts favourite here.
Hibernian loose 2-0 against Celtic in midweek in spite fo the fact that the opponent had various important starters out or doubtful, theyr emain with a trainer-duo in temporary charge but not credited able to lead the team till end of season, so search for a new trainer continues.
Usual long list of missing for them, with eight players that could be out for this match.
Hibs could be forced to put player sout their natural roles in defense with left back Stevenson that could play at right back and Mackie at left back having Gray ( def. 9+2 2g) doubtful and Whittaker ( 12+3) out.
Gauld ( midf.3+1) is a new missing, Porteus ( def. 16 3g), Bartley ( midf.7+1), Agyepong ( midf.1+4 1g), Boyle ( midf.17+1 4g) remain all out. Top scorer Shaw ( 6g) injuried himself in midweek but should be able to play.
Raith is second on table in League One, two level under the opponent, third scorer Vaughan ( 6g) is doubtful, but guests are boosted in moral to meet a PL team, they should give all here, while for hosts remain many probelms and the bad run in league could suggest turnover added to forced missings and a cautious approach here.
