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.

Dropping Jack And Pity For Poor Alexis...

We have lots more mails about Liverpool (is Brendan the naked emperor?) and Arsenal. One reader feels sorry for Alexis Sanchez while one wants Wilshere dropped...
