Hearts could again be without Ian Black for the visit of the Buddies.

The midfielder has broken bones in his hand and Hearts will make a late decision over whether to risk him.

Goalkeeper Paul Gallacher is out after undergoing knee surgery while Steven Thomson (calf), David Barron (knee), Craig Dargo (knee) and Sean Lynch (knock) are still sidelined.
