The duo sustained injuries in the 1-0 defeat at Cardiff earlier this month, with Flood unlikely to play this season after suffering a small tear in his posterior cruciate knee ligament.

French forward Aliadiere suffered a broken toe in that clash and faces around six weeks on the sidelines.

But Scott McDonald will be hoping to retain his place in the starting line-up after recovering from a hernia operation in time to score his first goal for the club in Saturday's 2-2 draw with rivals Newcastle.

Chris Riggott (hamstring) could again be named on the bench, but Emanuel Pogatetz's availability remains unclear as he continues to battle against a knee problem.
