Hamil­ton Ac­cies v Kil­marnock

Hamil­ton are op­ti­mistic both Ea­monn Bro­phy and Je­sus Gar­cia Tena will re­turn for the match. Both missed the vic­tory over Dundee United with knocks but re­turned to train­ing late in the week.

Dar­ren Lyon (stom­ach) re­mains out while Alex D’Acol and Kemy Agustien are also strug­gling to over­come knocks.

Kil­marnock boss Lee Clark will put his faith in young goal­keeper Conor Bren­nan af­ter fail­ing to have Jamie MacDon­ald’s one-game ban over­turned.

MacDon­ald was sent off against In­ver­ness last week­end af­ter bring­ing down Ca­ley This­tle mid­fielder Ross Draper in the box but the Rugby Park out­fit’s ap­peal was re­jected.

Kille are boosted by the re­turn of mid­fielder Craig Slater (ill­ness), while striker Josh Ma­gen­nis could also fea­ture if he can prove his fit­ness af­ter an an­kle in­jury. De­fend­ers Steven Smith (hip), David Syme (frac­tured leg) and Mark Con­nolly (hip) are out but winger Chris John­ston (knee) is inch­ing to­wards his re­turn.

Ross County v St John­stone

Ross County cap­tain An­drew Davies and mid­fielder Martin Woods re­turn from sus­pen­sion for the visit of St John­stone. De­fender Richard Fos­ter will miss the rest of the cam­paign af­ter un­der­go­ing groin surgery. For­ward Craig Cur­ran (concussion) re­mains out.

The jury’s out on Mur­ray David­son but Brian Eas­ton (ham­string) and Danny Swan­son (dead leg) re­turn and Craig Thom­son (bro­ken col­lar­bone) and Dave Mackay (hip) will not play.
