St Mirren keeper Trevor Carson will be available for the cinch Premiership opener against Motherwell in Paisley on Sunday.

It was feared the Northern Ireland international’s knee injury would be long-term but boss Stephen Robinson welcomed the news that he is back in action.

Curtis Main has trained for the last two weeks following a summer medical procedure and fellow striker Eamonn Brophy will train again on Friday after a minor fitness issue and Robinson will assess both for possible involvement.

Academy director Steven Hammell will take temporary charge of Motherwell following the departure of Graham Alexander and assistant manager Chris Lucketti.

Hammell will have a day to assess his squad following Thursday’s Europa Conference League exit in Sligo.

Left-back Nathan McGinley remains on the sidelines.
