David Elebert is back in contention for Hamilton after recovering from a knee injury.

Hamilton have signed Mickael Antoine-Curier until the end of the season but he is unlikely to be involved.

Alex Neil (hip) and James Gibson (knee) remain on the sidelines.

Bhoys striker Georgios Samaras has been ruled out of the trip to face Accies.

The striker was forced out of the Scottish Cup win against Berwick Rangers with a hamstring strain and will be out of action for at least 10 days.

Better news for the Hoops is that Gary Hooper (ankle), Glenn Loovens (knee) and Daryl Murphy (calf) are set to return to training next week.

Hamilton (from): Cerny, Buchanan, Canning, Skelton, Mensing, Gillespie, Hasselbaink, M Paixao, Imrie, Casalinuovo, F Paixao, McDonald, Murdoch, McLaughlin, McAlister, Devlin, Kirkpatrick, Elebert.

Hoops (from): Forster, Wilson, Majstorovic, Mulgrew, Rogne, Izaguirre, McCourt, Ledley, Kayal, Forrest, McGinn, Hooiveld, Stokes, Crosas, Zaluska, Juarez, Towell, Ljungberg.
