Kilmarnock midfielder Jamie Hamill returns from a two-match ban.

Craig Bryson, James Dayton (both knee) and Alan Combe (groin) remain on the sidelines.

Top scorer Conor Sammon, who rejected a move to Scunthorpe earlier in the week, could come back in after starting on the bench in the 2-1 defeat by Hearts on Tuesday night.

Dundee United are without Paul Dixon and have doubts over Garry Kenneth, Dusan Pernis and Johnny Russell ahead of the game.

Left-back Dixon suffered an ankle injury in the first half of United's 4-3 penalty shootout win over Ross County in the Scottish Cup on Tuesday night, a match which saw Pernis (thigh) replaced in goal by goalkeeping coach Steve Banks.

Defender Kenneth (dead leg) and forward Russell (shoulder) are also struggling to be fit, while Danny Swanson (back) and Mihael Kovacevic (knee) have returned to training, but Scott Severin (foot) and Darren Dods (knee) remain out.

Kilmarnock (from) Bell, Clancy, Hay, Fowler, Mendes Silva, Wright, Sissoko, Hamill, Taouil, Berntsson, Pascali, Kelly, Eremenko, Rui Miguel, Sammon, Old, Jaakkola, Kennedy, Gross.

Dundee United (from): Pernis, Dillon, Watson, Douglas, S Robertson, D Robertson, Kenneth, Gomis, Buaben, Shala, Cadamarteri, Conway, Daly, Russell, Dow, Armstrong, Mentel, Banks, Goodwillie.
