St Johnstone manager Derek McInnes has no fresh injury worries.

His players came through last week's draw against Kilmarnock unscathed, allowing him to name a similar side for the visit of the Paisley Saints.

Kevin Moon is back in training after almost a year on the sidelines with a cruciate ligament injury but the game comes too soon for him.

Michael Higdon and Marc McAusland are back in contention for St Mirren.

Higdon has returned to training following a knee injury while McAusland has overcome a foot problem.

Nick Hegarty, Garry Brady and Gareth Wardlaw remain on the sidelines for the Paisley side.

St Johnstone (from): Enckelman, Grainger, May, Duberry, MacKay, Anderson, Morris, Craig, Taylor, Davidson, Millar, MacDonald, Samuel, Parkin, Maybury, Smith, Reynolds, Caddis.

St Mirren (from): Gallacher, Mair, van Zanten, Potter, McGregor, Travner, Goodwin, Thomson, McQuade, Murray, Cregg, McAusland, Higdon, McGowan, Dargo, Mooy, Samson, McLean.
