Mark O'Hara and Jake Carroll are rated as doubtful for Motherwell's clash with Aberdeen after the pair picked up minor niggles during the international break.
Aberdeen have a shortage of central midfielders for the Fir Park trip.
Lewis Ferguson is suspended, Funso Ojo (hamstring) is still out and both Stephen Gleeson and Craig Bryson are in the early stages of their returns to training following injury, although the latter could feature.
Provisional Motherwell squad: Gillespie, Tait, Grimshaw, Mugabi, D Gallagher, Hartley, Maguire, Polworth, A Campbell, Seedorf, Hylton, Ilic, Long, Cole, Scott, Manzinga, Carson.
Provisional Aberdeen squad: Lewis, Logan, Leigh, Vyner, Considine, McKenna, Devlin, J Gallagher, McGinn, Hedges, Cosgrove, Anderson, D Campbell, McLennan, E Ross, S Ross, Barron, Bryson, Cerny.
