The Saints striker hobbled off with a knock in the 2-1 win over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park on Saturday.

Kevin Moon, Jamie Adams and Peter Pawlett remain on the sidelines.

Captain James McPake and fellow defender Tim Clancy will miss the game.

McPake has a back injury and Clancy had a minor operation on a troublesome groin injury, but could return in two to three weeks.

Northern Ireland international McPake could also miss Sunday's William Hill Scottish Cup fourth round clash with Hearts, who beat Hibs to the trophy in May's final. Gary Deegan (jaw) remains out.
