Murray Davidson remains out with a fractured arm while Anthony Ralston cannot face his parent club.

Celtic have a fitness doubt over Jozo Simunovic but Ryan Christie and Kristoffer Ajer are back in the squad.

Jeremie Frimpong is awaiting the results of a scan on the injury he suffered against Kilmarnock while Mohamed Elyounoussi (foot), Hatem Abd Elhamed (groin) and Nir Bitton (knock) are also out.

St Johnstone provisional squad: Clark, Duffy, Booth, Tanser, Vihmann, Gordon, Kerr, Holt, Swanson, Craig, McCann, O’Halloran, Kane, May, Wotherspoon, Hendry, Northcott, Parish.
