Jack Ross backs Martin Boyle and Josh Doig to shine in derby as Hibs boss makes strong Edinburgh claim

  Jack Ross backs Martin Boyle and Josh Doig to shine in derby as Hibs boss makes strong Edinburgh claim Jack Ross has hailed the ‘collaborative thinking’ between Hearts and Hibs as the Easter Road boss spoke of the importance of both teams continuing to aim high.“In my time we have had two derbies in front of crowds and it doesn’t matter where the clubs are or how they are performing for the intensity of the fixture,” Ross said ahead of the short trip across town.

Forward Satou Sabally has missed eight straight games with an Achilles injury. Guard Moriah Jefferson also did not dress in the Wings’ loss to the league-leading Connecticut Sun on Tuesday after injuring her hamstring. Coach Vickie Johnson -- who recently said, “We have to beat New York. Period.” -- is hopeful Sabally and Jefferson can return Saturday against the Liberty. Both were listed as questionable on the team’s official injury report. Forward Isabelle Harrison will miss her third straight game after testing positive for COVID-19.

The winner -take-all Game 5 featured 24 lead changes and 11 ties as the Sparks and Lynx battled for WNBA supremacy. After Candace Parker’s layup gave the Sparks a one-point lead with 19.7 seconds remaining, the Lynx responded with Maya Moore sinking a turnaround jumper on the baseline to put the Lynx back up by one with 15.4 seconds left. She may have been a rookie playing in her first WNBA Playoffs , but Brittney Griner sure didn’t act like it. In a win or go home Game 3 against the L.A. Sparks in the Western Conference Semifinals, it was the Mercury rookie that took the biggest shot of the series.
