St Mirren v Hibernian preview

St Mirren welcome back Jim Goodwin and Patrick Cregg. Goodwin has

served a suspension and Cregg has recovered from a hamstring

injury. Gareth Wardlaw (ankle) and David Barron (calf) are still

out, and Nick Hegarty is unlikely to feature as he builds up his

fitness following an ankle break. Hibernian are seeking a third

straight win in the SPL but Colin Calderwood has selection

problems. Defensive duo Steven Thicot (hip/thigh) and Michael Hart

(knee injection) have both been ruled out, with the former also

missing last weekend’s win over Kilmarnock. Kevin McBride will

serve the second of a two-match ban while Ian Murray starts a

two-game suspension. But Francis Dickoh is available after his red

card against Killie was overturned on appeal, while Graham Stack

will continue in goals. St Mirren (from): Gallacher, Mair, Van

Zanten, Potter, McGregor, Travner, Thomson, Cregg, Murray,

McAusland, Higdon, McGowan, McQuade, Dargo, Mooy, Samson, McLean,

Goodwin, Murray. Hibernian (from): Stack, Smith, Dickoh, Towell,

Hanlon, Booth, Wotherspoon, Nish, Riordan, Rankin, Stevenson,

Duffy, Galbraith, Trakys, Thornhill, Brown, Miller, Scott, Palsson,
