M'well v St J'stone preview

Motherwell welcome back Shaun Hutchinson for their Scottish Premiership game against St Johnstone on Wednesday.

The defender missed the weekend win over Partick through suspension but is back in contention for the visit of the Perth side.

Boss Stuart McCall has no fresh injuries ahead of the New Year's Day clash.

St Johnstone midfielder Chris Millar, who missed the games against Celtic and Dundee United due to a groin injury, returns for the trip to Lanarkshire.

Dave Mackay, who missed the Celtic game with a calf knock, will also be involved but Brian Easton is out with a hamstring injury.

Paddy Cregg is serving the first of a two-match ban while Steven MacLean, who has undergone knee surgery, is unlikely to feature until February.
