Hamilton captain Alex Neil is suspended for the game.

The 29-year-old midfielder signed a new three-year deal with the Lanarkshire club on Thursday but will have to watch from the stand after being sent off against St Mirren last week.

Defender David Elebert is back after recovering from a hamstring and Conner McGlinchey, from the under-19s, will be added to the squad.
