Motherwell lost 3-0 at home in the SPL to St Johnstone on Saturday in what manager Stuart McCall described as their poorest performance of the season.

The same starting XI though will get the chance to make amends against Hibs.

Hibernian, meanwhile, have doubts over Ian Murray and Ivan Sproule ahead of the game.

Murray is struggling with a stiff back, while Sproule picked up a knock in the 2-2 draw against Dunfermline in the SPL on Saturday and, like Murray, will be assessed.

Motherwell (from): Randolph, Hateley, Clancy, Craigan, Hammell, Humphrey, Jennings, Daley, Lasley, Law, Murphy, McHugh, Higdon, Hollis, Sorbes, Page, Halsman, Carswell.

Hibernian (from): Stack, Towell, Murray, O'Hanlon, Hanlon, Booth, Sproule, Wotherspoon, Palsson, Osbourne, Scott, O'Connor, Sodje, Griffiths, Agogo, Brown, Galbraith, Stevenson, Stephens.
