All four missed Saturday’s 5-0 Clydesdale Bank Premier League win over St Mirren in Paisley.

Defenders Adam Matthews and Kelvin Wilson picked up respective knee and calf complaints but manager Neil Lennon is hoping both will be fit. Lassad (groin) and Dylan McGeouch (knock) did not travel.

Provisional squad: Forster, Matthews, Lustig, Wilson, Ambrose, Mulgrew, Izaguirre, Brown, Ledley, Kayal, Forrest, Commons, Samaras, Wanyama, McCourt, Miku, Watt, Zaluska, Chalmers.
