Madjid Bougherra has been ruled out of Sunday’s Clydesdale Bank Premier League game at Dundee United and is doubtful for next week’s crucial Champions League tie with Unirea Urziceni.
The centre-half has been out of action with a knee injury picked up after a late return from international duty saw him miss the win at St Johnstone earlier this month.
Lee McCulloch missed training today and is still rated doubtful with a thigh strain. Kirk Broadfoot has returned to training after recovering from a foot injury but the weekend action is likely to come too soon.
Provisional squad: McGregor, Whittaker, Papac, Weir, Smith, Davis, Fleck, Naismith, Lafferty, Miller, Novo, Boyd, Beasley, Loy, Wilson, Rothen, Thomson, Alexander.
