Hamilton midfielder Simon Mensing returns for the clash.

The former St Johnstone player is in contention for a place in Billy Reid's side

after resolving a family issue.

Marco Paixao (knee) is still out while Alex Neil (hip) and James Gibson (knee) remain long-term casualties.

Dundee United will be without striker Jon Daly for the match.

The striker is back doing light training following a hernia operation but is still some weeks away from a comeback.

Winger Craig Conway is fit after a recent thigh strain and so is Danny Swanson, who came off the bench against St Johnstone in midweek. Defender Garry Kenneth is out with a knee injury.

Boss Peter Houston will be minus long-term injury victims Mihael Kovacevic, Darren Dods (both knee) and Scott Severin (ankle).

Hamilton (from): Cerny, Elebert, Canning, McLaughlin, Hasselbaink, McDonald, Mensing, Skelton, McAlister, Routledge, Antoine-Curier, Imrie, Flavio Paixao, Elliot, Buchanan, Murdoch, Carrington, Casalinuovo, Graham.

Dundee United (from): Pernis, Dillon, Dixon, Van der Maulen, Watson, Douglas, Swanson, Gomis, Conway, Buaben, Armstrong, S Robertson, D Robertson, Conway, Goodwillie, Russell, Banks, Dow, Smith.
