However Owain Tudur Jones returns for the Clydesdale Bank Premier League game following a three-match ban and Andre Blackman has returned to training after an ankle injury.

Simon King (ankle), Chris Hogg (knee), Nick Ross (shoulder) and Shane Sutherland (leg)remain on the sidelines.

Ross County manager Derek Adams will hand late tests to midfielder Richard Brittain and striker Colin McMenamin.

Having seen their 40-match unbeaten league run come to an end, County have now suffered back-to-back-defeats, against St Johnstone and St Mirren.

Grant Munro, Ross Tokely, Iain Vigurs, Russell Duncan and Mark Brown are all former ICT players in the County ranks, giving added spice to the two clubs first-ever top flight meeting.
