Saints can’t field loanee Antony Ralston against his parent club and Murray Davidson is still unavailable.
The Hoops will be without Olivier Ntcham, Hatem Abd Elhamed and Mikey Johnston.
Celtic should take out their frustrations on St Johnstone with a win in Perth and they could rattle in a few goals too.
The Hoops turned in a desperate Europa League performance on Thursday as they were upset at home by Copenhagen, eliminating them from a competition that boss Neil Lennon had talked of winning.
But Celtic rarely repeat their dismal displays and Tommy Wright’s side could feel the backlash at McDiarmid Park.
Saints grabbed a draw against Rangers last week but it’s likely to be difficult for them to repeat the feat against the treble holders.
Celtic have won 33 domestic cup ties in a row.
