Kilmarnock boss Mixu Paatelainen has close to a full squad to pick from.

James Dayton is the only casualty as he continues to build up his fitness following a cruciate ligament injury.

Killie hope the winger will regain his fitness in about six weeks' time, giving him hope of playing again before the end of the season.
