Finn Harps come up against Cork City in tonight's eircom League of Ireland Premier Division clash at Finn Park, kick-off 8.00pm.
Harps central defenders Declan Boyle (hamstring) and Stuart Malcolm (Achilles) are both out.
However, Marc Mukendi returns after a one-game ban and will fill one of the vacant central defensive berths.
Jonathan Minnock and Aaron Labonte are both back in training after long lay-offs but Hegarty may not risk bringing them back too soon.
Long-term absentees Gary Beckett and Cornelius Gallagher continue to miss out.
And new signing Neil McCafferty is in line to make his competitive debut for the Donegal side.
City have a full strength squad to choose from for the game, with everyone having taken a full part in training this week.
Cork boss Alan Mathews said: “Harps will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing result last Sunday and we know we will have to work hard to get the right result.
“We know we will be in for a battle in Finn Park. We are confident in our own ability, but our work rate and our attitude will have to be right if we are to get the outcome we want from the game.”
