The former Scotland cap has already missed recent defeats to Hibernian and St Johnstone as a result of back spasms and will play no part as the Scottish Communities League Cup finalists meet for a dress rehearsal of their March 17 Hampden decider in Paisley.

The only other absences for Danny Lennon's team are long-term injury victims Darren McGregor (knee) and Thomas Reilly (ankle).

Hearts are without midfielders Scott Robinson and Ryan Stevenson.

Robinson has a knee injury that might require surgery while Stevenson completes a three-match ban following his red card against Dundee United.

Long-term absentees Danny Grainger (knee) Marius Zaliukas (ankle) and Callum Patterson (foot) remain on the sidelines while Jamie Hamill is still working his way back from knee surgery.

Teams:

St Mirren (from): Samson, Van Zanten, McAusland, Goodwin, Dummett, Newton, McLean, McGowan, McGinn, Thompson, Goncalves, Adam, Parkin, Barron, Mair, Imrie, Guy, Carey.

Hearts (from): MacDonald, Wilson, Webster, Walker, Barr, Mullen, Holt, Tapping, Ngoo, King, Ridgers, Prychynenko, Sutton, Novikovas, McGowan, Taouil, McHattie, Smith, Carrick.
