St Johnstone manager Derek McInnes has no fresh injury worries ahead of the clash.

Michael Duberry is expected to be out for up to four weeks with a groin injury, while Sam Parkin is missing for the remainder of the season with a broken ankle.

Kevin Moon (groin) and Chris Millar (hamstring) also remain on the sidelines ahead of the visit of the Edinburgh side.

Forward Ricardo Vaz Te could make his debut after signing on Monday, while on-loan Jakub Divis is in contention to take Stack's place in goal along with Graeme Smith and Mark Brown.
