The latest squad news ahead of Tuesday

ALEX Tettey will miss Tuesday's trip to Wigan Athletic as he begins his two-match suspension for collecting ten yellow cards.

The midfielder picked up his tenth card in Saturday's victory away to Cardiff City, but manager Alex Neil is targeting a timely return to the squad for Youssouf Mulumbu against the Latics.

Mulumbu hasn't featured since New Year's Eve having been part of DR Congo's squad at the Africa Cup of Nations and returned with a thigh issue.

Neil said: "He had a tight thigh for the Cardiff game, but I'm hoping he should be ok for this one."

Graham Dorrans (knee) and Louis Thompson (Achilles) are still sidelined, while Steven Naismith is expected to miss out again due to the hamstring injury that prevented him travelling to South Wales.

Matt Jarvis, however, is set for a return to the squad after recovering sufficiently from a hamstring problem of his own.
