Igor Rossi is suspended after receiving a one-match ban for six bookings. This will likely see a return to the starting XI for former captain Alim Ozturk in central defence.

Accies manager Martin Canning is without goalkeeper Remi Matthews (shoulder) while centre-back Jesus Garcia Tena is still sidelined by an knee injury.
