Walsall winger Steve Jones could make his Motherwell debut against Hibernian after joining on loan.

But Leeds striker Mike Grella will not be joining the club after FIFA rules deprived him of a loan move.

Steven Saunders is in contention for the SPL contest after recovering from a hamstring problem, but Keith Lasley is out after suffering the same injury and Bob McHugh has been loaned to Partick Thistle.

Hibernian have doubts over Edwin de Graaf, Lewis Stevenson and Paul Hanlon as they seek to end a winless run of nine games.

De Graaf has a groin problem, Stevenson a broken bone in his foot and Hanlon suffered a knock in the 1-0 Scottish Cup loss at Second Division Ayr and has been unable to train since, but all three could yet play at Fir Park.

Liam Miller is out, serving the second of a two-match SPL suspension.

Motherwell (from): Randolph, Saunders, Hutchinson, Craigan, Hammell, Sutton, Humphrey, Hateley, Jennings, Murphy, Forbes,

Casagolda, Jones, Hollis, Page, Meechan, Pollock, Charalambous.

Hibernian (from): Brown, Wotherspoon, Hogg, De Graaf, Rankin, Hanlon, Zemmama, Trakys, Galbraith, Dickoh, Duffy, Murray, Smith, Nish, Riordan, Hart.
