St Johnstone will be without Steven Anderson after he was sent off against Dundee United at Tannadice on Saturday.

However, Derek McInnes is hopeful that Dave Mackay (hamstring) and Jamie Adams (hamstring) will both be available.

Peter Enckelman's knee injury will be assessed but McInnes will not take a chance on his first-choice goalkeeper.

Gary Hooper and Charlie Mulgrew are both expected to be fit for Celtic, while Scott Brown will come back into contention after being rested at the weekend.

Hooper received a dead leg against St Mirren on Saturday and Mulgrew picked up a knock. but both should be fine.

Neil Lennon is hoping that Daniel Majstorovic will start back training this week with a view to returning before the end of the season. The defender has recovered from a broken toe.

St Johnstone (from) Enckelman, Smith, Maybury, Grainger, Duberry, Mackay, Invincibile, Robertson, Adams, Davidson, Millar, Moon, MacDonald, Gartland, Samuel, Novikovas, Caddis, May, Taylor, Clark.

Celtic (from): Forster, Loovens, Cha Du-Ri, Mulgrew, Izaguirre, Ljungberg, Commons, Kayal, Ki, Ledley, Stokes, Hooper, Maloney, Forrest, Zaluska, Rogne, Wilson, Samaras, Brown.
