Ofir Marciano, David Gray. Kyle Magennis, Drey Wright, Leiws Stevnson, Jamie Murphy, Melker Hallberg and Darren McGregor are on the substitutes bench.

St Johnstone have Zander Clark in goals and Jamie McCart, Liam Gordon and Jason Kerr in defence. Callum Booth and Shaun Rooney are in as wing backs.

Ali McCann, David Wotherspoion and Craig Bryson are in the centre of midfield with Glen Middleton supporting Chris Kane in attack.

Elliot Parish, James Brown, Scott Tanser, Liam Craig, Murray Davidson, Craig Conway, Guy Melamed, Stevie May and Michael O’Halloran are the St Johnstone substitutes.
