Manager Stuart McCall is likely to field the same team that beat Dundee United 3-1 at Tannadice last week.

McCall's charges are unbeaten in seven games, the first of which was a 2-1 victory over Celtic, as they close in on a second place finish.

Hoops manager Neil Lennon will rest four players when his squad make the trip to Fir Park to face the Steelmen in the Scottish Premier League.

Kris Commons has been struggling with an ankle problem, while fellow midfielder Joe Ledley and defensive duo Efe Ambrose and Kelvin Wilson have been given a week off.

Striker Lassad Nouioui (calf), midfielder Scott Brown (abductor) are absent along with full-back Adam Matthews (hamstring), who will return to training next week.
