Queen of the South forward Derek Lyle available to face St Mirren

Queen of the South will be able to include Derek Lyle against visitors St Mirren after they decided to appeal his dismissal in the 5-1 defeat to Rangers last Sunday.

New signings Liam Coogans and Gary Oliver are included but a foot injury keeps Dale Hilson out, Callum Tapping is not ready to return after a knock and Steven Higgins has left the club.

Manager James Fowler said: "It was a sore defeat from Rangers but it has not lingered as we have had a good start to the season. St Mirren will be tough opponents as they have a good squad so we need to be at the top of our game."

St Mirren look for their first win in the Championship without Jason Naismith, who has a knee injury, and Stuart Carswell, who has an ankle problem.

New loan recruit from Aberdeen, Lawrence Shankland, is away on Scotland Under-21 duty but Keith Watson has returned to training and looks set to be included.

Manager Ian Murray said: "We saw progress from the side last weekend in our performance against Livingston but we only got a draw when we should have secured a win. Queen of the South will be looking to move on from the Rangers game with a win but we can go there and get the three points."
