Football: HIBS IN SWOOP FOR DUO; MOTHERWELL V HIBS.
HUNGARIAN cap Janos Matyus yesterday joined Hibs in a one-year deal.
And the defender, snapped up by boss Bobby Williamson from Bundesliga outfit Energie Cottbus, could make his debut today against Motherwell.
Hibs also paraded another signing, Sunderland defender Craig James who is on a one-year deal.
Both players go straight into the squad for the game at Fir Park as Hibs try to end a losing sequence of four matches.
Francisco Luna returns to the squad after serving a suspension last week but Garry O'Connor is out with a hamstring problem.
Well boss Terry Butcher last night snapped up former Newcastle United man David Cowan - and didn't lose any players in the process.
The 20-year-old has signed for a year and goes straight into the squad today.
Butcher said: "David is a strong player who was with Newcastle last season and we're looking for him to push for a place in the first-team.
"And it is pleasing that we've kept everyone else together. There was talk about James McFadden going, but it's good news that he's staying here."
