Midfielder Ian Black is available again as Hearts take on St Johnstone.
Black has served a three-match ban following his second sending-off of the season.
Hearts have no fresh injury concerns, with left-back Danny Grainger (groin), defender Darren Barr (groin), strikers Kevin Kyle and Gary Glen and midfielder Suso Santana also out.
St Johnstone captain Jody Morris is rated a 50-50 chance to be fit for his side's SPL clash against Hearts.
The former Chelsea midfielder missed last weekend's win over Hibernian with a hamstring problem.
Striker Cillian Sheridan is definitely missing with the same injury.
