Motherwell defender Shaun Hutchinson could make a timely return to action against Hamilton on Tuesday.

Shaun Hutchinson: Poised to make his return

The centre-back has been sidelined with a groin problem but could play in the pre-season friendly at New Douglas Park.

Manager Stuart McCall lost centre-backs Stephen Craigan and Tim Clancy in the summer and both Jonathan Page and Steven Saunders have been ruled out of next week's Champions League opener against Panathinaikos.

McCall told MFCTV: "Hopefully Shaun Hutchinson and Bob McHugh will get a part of the game.

"They both came through training (on Monday) unscathed so we'll be looking for them to kick on."
