Celtic midfielder Ki Sung-yueng (hamstring) and James Forrest (ankle) are out but right-back Adam Matthews returns from illness and Beram Kayal, who has recovered fully from his ankle injury, could be included in the squad.

Provisional squad: Forster, Cha, Matthews, Rogne, Mulgrew, Izaguirre, Loovens, K Wilson, Kayal, Brown, Commons, Samaras, Wanyama, Ledley, Brozek, Hooper, Zaluska, Stokes, Bangura, Blackman, Lustig, McCourt, Watt.
