Hearts will be without suspended duo Ian Black and Danny Grainger for Saturday’s Clydesdale Bank Premier League trip to St Mirren.
Midfielder Black will serve the first of a three-match ban for his dismissal against Kilmarnock, while left-back Grainger is banned for two matches after admitting to stamping on Dean Shiels at Tynecastle last weekend.
Darren Barr (groin) is also missing, while Kevin Kyle, Gary Glen and Suso Santana remain out.
St Mirren will be without Jon McShane.
The forward suffered a slight knee ligament injury in training earlier in the week and will look on from the sidelines this weekend.
Buddies boss Danny Lennon has no other injury concerns ahead of the visit of the Jambos.
St Mirren (from): Samson, Mair, van Zanten, McAusland, Tesselaar, Goodwin, Carey, McLean, Thompson, Haddad, McGowan, Hasselbaink, Teale, Thomson, McKee, Smith, Barron, Reilly.
Hearts (from): Kello, Hamill, Webster, Zaliukas, Mrowiec, Jonsson, Driver, Stevenson, Taouil, Templeton, Robinson, Skacel, Novikovas, Smith, Elliott, MacDonald, Obua, MacDonald.
