St Mirren welcome back Jim Goodwin and Patrick Cregg.
Goodwin has served a suspension and Cregg has recovered from a hamstring injury.
Gareth Wardlaw (ankle) and David Barron (calf) are still out, and Nick Hegarty is unlikely to feature as he builds up his fitness following an ankle break.
Hibernian are seeking a third straight win in the SPL but Colin Calderwood has selection problems.
Defensive duo Steven Thicot (hip/thigh) and Michael Hart (knee injection) have both been ruled out, with the former also missing last weekend's win over Kilmarnock.
Kevin McBride will serve the second of a two-match ban while Ian Murray starts a two-game suspension.
But Francis Dickoh is available after his red card against Killie was overturned on appeal, while Graham Stack will continue in goals.
