Steven Anderson is free to play for St Johnstone. The defender was booked twice against Dundee United at Tannadice last week but referee Brian Winter failed to send him off.

However, an SFA disciplinary committee met and voted for the one-match ban which will see him miss the trip to Inverness in a fortnight.

He will also miss the game at Hamilton the week after as his indiscretions at Tannadice took him over the points threshold for a further one-game ban.

Scott Dobie and Steven Milne are back after recovering from hamstring and knee injuries respectively.

Sol Bamba and Colin Nish are available again for Hibs after missing the defeat by Celtic through injury.

However, Danny Galbraith is expected to miss out after picking up a knee knock.

Ian Murray (hip), Darryl Duffy (metatarsal), Merouane Zemmama (knee) and goalkeeper Graham Stack (back) remain out.

St Johnstone (from): Enckelman, Maybury, Anderson, Grainger, Duberry, MacKay, Morris, Craig, Myrie-Williams, Davidson, Jackson, Samuel, Parkin, Haber, Taylor, Smith, Rutkiewicz, May, Caddis, Dobie, Milne.

Hibernian (from): Brown, Wotherspoon, Hogg, Bamba, De Graaf, Miller, Rankin, Nish, Riordan, G Smith, Hanlon, Thicot, Stevenson, Trakys, Currie, Dickoh, Grounds, McBride.
