Hamilton defender Martin Canning will return to action against Falkirk after 4 weeks out with an ankle injury.
The Accies are also boosted by the return of skipper Alex Neil after recovering from a knock.
Strikers Andy Ryan and Kieran Millar are both out through ankle and knee injuries respectively with New Douglas Park boss Billy Reid looking for a change of fortune against the Bairns.
Reid said: ``Last season we played well in our games against Falkirk but we never even scored a goal against them. They won the Ramsdens Cup against us with a goal we don't think should have stood and we got a goalkeeper sent off in a league game when he played the ball and not the man.
``It would be good to put some of that right in this game.''
Falkirk will be without skipper Darren Dods for the trip.
Dods is serving a suspension following his dismissal in the Bairns' last outing when they went down 2-1 to Livingston.
Midfielder Jay Fulton is also absent after he picked up a knee injury with the club's Technical Director Alex Smith looking for his side to tighten up at the back.
Smith said: ``We have started to concede some soft goals and hopefully we can show that we have cut that out of our game at Hamilton.
``Both sides are heading into this one after losing their last game and I am sure like us Hamilton will want to strike back straight away by winning. We did well against them last season so hopefully we can keep that going.''
