St Mirren manager Danny Lennon hopes Paul McQuade will be able to make his first appearance of the season.

The striker has missed all the previous SPL matches with a calf tear but is back in training and could play a part, while Paul McGowan returns from suspension.

However, Steven Thomson has been told he faces up to six weeks on the sidelines with a torn calf.

Inverness midfielder Lee Cox will miss out after suffering a leg injury during the cup defeat at Celtic in midweek.

The former Leicester player has his leg in plaster after his fibula was damaged by a heavy tackle from Ki Sung-yeung in the 6-0 loss, and he is facing six weeks on the sidelines.

Kenny Gillet, Dani Sanchez (both knee), Kevin McCann (groin) and Chris Innes (hamstring) remain on the sidelines but Gil Blumenshtein is back in the squad.

St Mirren (from): Gallacher, Mair, van Zanten, Potter, McGregor, Travner, Robb, Brady, Hegarty, Lynch, Murray, Wardlaw, Samson, McAusland, McQuade, Faulds, Love, Mclean, McGowan.

Inverness (from): Esson, Tokely, Proctor, Munro, Golabek, Duff, Duncan, Hayes, Foran, Ross, Odhiambo, Rooney, Sutherland, McBain, Shinnie, Morrison, Blumenshtein, Tuffey.

What Is It That FIFA Actually Do?

That's the question raised timidly by someone sat at the back of the room, whilst others remind that UEFA aren't perfect either. Plus a few more gone on to better XIs...

Time To Step Up, Mr Platini...

UEFA should step up and extend the Euros to replace FIFA's tarnished World Cup, say a couple of mailboxers. Also: all hail Carlo, King of the Kop, and plenty more Budget XIs...
