Tom Aldred could make his second Motherwell debut in the Lanarkshire derby against Hamilton on Saturday.

The defender rejoined on loan from Bury on Thursday night and will be assessed ahead of the game having not played a competitive match since the Scottish Cup final.

His arrival will be a boost following the departure of Cedric Kipre and a long-term injury to Charles Dunne (groin), while Craig Tanner (knee) and Ryan Bowman (ankle) are also out, but Allan Campbell returns from suspension.

Provisional squad: Carson, Gillespie, Tait, McHugh, Aldred, Hartley, Taylor-Sinclair, Donnelly, Grimshaw, Frear, Cadden, Campbell, Rose, Bigirimana, Gorrin, Johnson, Main, Sammon, Turnbull.
