St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright is hoping to keep his good run against Terry Butcher on Saturday.
The Saints travel to Easter Road to take on Hibs.
As players, they met in a 1-0 Newcastle win over Sunderland and, earlier this season, Saints beat Butcher’s ICT 4-0.
A few weeks back, the Highlanders beat Saints 1-0 but Butcher was at Hibs by then.
Lee Croft’s had another week of training and a runout in the U/20 success over Dundee United so is in the squad.
Steven Anderson also played in that U/20 game but the Hibs match may come too soon for him as he battles back from injury.
Steven MacLean is still out injured and Rory Fallon is serving the second of his two-match ban.
Chris Millar is set to play in his 200th Saints match and Tommy paid tribute to him.
“All the managers Chris has played under will be pleased for him because he’s a good player who always gives 100%,” said the Saints boss.
“He’s very much a team player, a great pro who is also great in the dressing-room.”
Two of Saints’ bright youngsters, Dylan Easton and Chris Kane, have signed new deals with the club. Both have signed on for two more years.
