Appeal gives Kerr a reprieve

Jason Kerr will be available for St Johnstone’s short trip to face Dundee in the Ladbrokes Premiership at Dens Park.

The club have appealed against the red card shown to the defender against Kilmarnock on Wednesday, leaving him free to make the trip.

Steven MacLean will return to the squad after missing the trip to Rugby Park due to fears over the surface, while Keith Watson and Steven Anderson return but Brian Easton (hernia), Richard Foster (hamstring), Stefan Scougall (ankle), David McMillan (hamstring) and Callum Hendry (groin/pelvis) form a lengthy injury list.

Provisional squad: Mannus, Clark, Tanser, Kerr, Anderson, Shaughnessy, Alston, Davidson, Millar, Watson, Wotherspoon, Craig, Willock, Johnstone, McClean, Williams, Gordon, Kane, Comrie, MacLean.
