James Forrest is nearing a return and could feature at new Douglas Park on Saturday.

Kieran Tierney is out until after the New Year but is training again after undergoing surgery on his ankle and shoulder.


Greg Docherty is out with a broken foot he sustained in last week’s loss to Rangers.

Grant Gillespie is suspended for the match.

Danny Seaborne is battling back from a foot injury which forced him to miss the meeting between the two sides at Paradise just over a week ago.

Midfielder Gramoz Kurtaj and ‘keeper Remi Matthews remain injured and will miss the game.
