Gary McDonald is doubtful for Hamilton.

Martin Canning is still out with a knock and Marco Paixao (knee), Alex Neil (hip) and James Gibson (knee) also remain on the sidelines.

Simon Mensing remains in contention after it emerged today he had served a four-week suspension for failing a drug test before his return at the weekend.

Ian Murray returns from suspension for Hibs.

Murray served a two-match ban as Hibs extended their run to four successive wins but the captain could make an immediate return in midfield.

Hamilton (from): Cerny, Elebert, McLaughlin, McDonald, Graham, Skelton, Mensing, McAlister, Routledge, Antoine-Curier, Casalinuovo, Imrie, F Paixao, Carrington, Hasselbaink, Buchanan, Murdoch, Crawford.
