Liam Donnelly is suspended for Motherwell’s Ladbrokes Premiership clash with St Mirren at Fir Park on Saturday.
The midfielder was sent off against St Johnstone last week while full-back Jake Carroll serves the second of a two-game ban.
David Devine will have an operation on a fractured cheekbone while fellow defender Charles Dunne (groin) and midfielder David Turnbull (knee) remains on the sidelines.
St Mirren have no fresh injuries ahead of the trip to Lanarkshire.
Long-term injury victim Cody Cooke (knee) is their only absentee.
However, the striker is back running and is due to rejoin the squad in a couple of weeks.
Provisional Motherwell squad: Gillespie, Tait, Grimshaw, Mugabi, Gallagher, Hartley, Maguire, Polworth, O’Hara, Campbell, Seedorf, Hylton, Ilic, Long, Cole, Scott, Manzinga, Carson.
Provisional St Mirren squad: Hladky, P McGinn, Waters, Broadfoot, MacKenzie, McLoughlin, Magennis, Erhahon, S McGinn, Flynn, Foley, Andreu, Djorkaeff, MacPherson, Durmus, Mullen, McAllister, Morias, Obika, Lyness.
