St Mirren winger Gary Teale will sit out the third match in a row for the Buddies as they take on Hearts in the Scottish Premier League.
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 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 for the clash.
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.
