The Easter Road skipper missed the 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock at Rugby Park on Sunday where midfielder Paul Cairney picked up a booking for simulation which takes him over the points threshold.

However, his one-game ban will not kick-in until after the New Year.

Alex Cooper is a doubt for Ross County after he picked up a leg injury in Saturday's 4-0 SPL defeat by Celtic at Parkhead.

Manager Derek Adams said: "Alex Cooper had to come off injured with a nasty gash to his leg but everybody else seems to be fine. We will assess things and take it from there."
