The Lithuania international will replace Scott Wootton, who has been ruled out with an ankle injury sustained in the recent win at Charlton.
Leading goalscorer Ross McCormack is expected to start despite being withdrawn from the Scotland squad due to a hamstring injury earlier this week.
Right-back Sam Byram (thigh) and left-back Stephen Warnock (ankle) missed the game at Charlton and could return to contention, while midfielder Michael Brown and defender Danny Pugh will be hoping to retain their places.
