Mark O'Hara, Liam Grimshaw (both illness), Bevis Mugabi (shoulder) and Sherwin Seedorf (knee) are sidelined along with recent signings Eddie Nolan, Sam Foley and Harry Smith, plus long-term knee injury victims Trevor Carson, Charles Dunne, Liam Donnelly and Scott Fox.
Livingston picked up a couple of injuries during their midweek defeat by Rangers.
Efe Ambrose was on the bench after being troubled by a knee knock while Jackson Longridge is looking to return from a knee injury. Long-term absentees Alan Lithgow (hip) and Keaghan Jacobs (foot) remain out.
