St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright will make his mind up today on Spanish trialist Josu.
The former Barcelona youth player took part in a closed-doors game earlier in the week and is still with the Perth squad.
“He has done OK this week and we will sit down and have a chat with him,” Wright reported. “He played for an hour.
“You can see he has something about him but we will have a decision to make after Friday training.”
Chris Millar will miss the visit of Hamilton to McDiarmid Park tomorrow, and Liam Craig may also be absent.
Graham Cummins and Simon Lappin are expected to be in the squad, though.
Wright explained: “Chris Millar’s scan wasn’t too bad but he should return to full training after the game with Celtic next week.
“Liam Craig is back in training but with Simon Lappin available again after his surgery we might hold Liam back.
“Simon played 90 minutes in the bounce game against Queen of the South. He has come through it without any reaction.
“Cummins got 60 minutes and Brown, Caddis and Sutton played the whole game.
“It was good to get game time for some of the lads.
“Cummins is back to where he should be in terms of fitness so he is a potential starter.”
Both teams are coming off a cup defeat, but Saints’ exit to Kilmarnock wasn’t in the same ballpark as Accies thrashing by League Two Annan.
“Very few people would have seen that result at Annan coming, with Accies being turned over 4-1,” Wright admitted.
“But we just have to look after ourselves. We have come off a defeat in the cup as well.
“So we have to make sure our own house is in order.
“While performances have been fine and we have been creating chances we haven’t got the results recently that we would have liked.
“We certainly won’t be anticipating an easy game. That won’t be our mind set.”
