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.

Hibernian are looking to claim a sixth successive victory in the SPL, but they will have to do it without Graham Stack.

The goalkeeper suffered a shoulder injury as Hibs won at Hamilton on Tuesday and joins Danny Galbraith (ankle), Steven Thicot (hip/thigh), Michael Hart (knee) and long-term absentee Kevin McCann (knee) in missing the clash at McDiarmid Park.

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.

St Johnstone (from): Enckelman, Grainger, MacKay, Anderson, Gartland, Morris, Adams, Craig, Invincibile, Reynolds, Davidson, MacDonald, Samuel, May, Maybury, Novikovas, Smith, Taylor.

Hibernian (from): Smith, Dickoh, Towell, Hanlon, Booth, Wotherspoon, Nish, Riordan, Rankin, Murray, Stevenson, Duffy, Trakys, Thornhill, Brown, Miller, Scott, Palsson, Sodje, Vaz Te, Divis.
