Partick Thistle have midfielder Ross Forbes available to face Hamilton after a one-match ban.
Stephen O'Donnell and Mark McGuigan both doubtful due to ankle injuries.
The Jags lost top spot at the weekend when they were held 1-1 by Airdrie and manager Jackie McNamara has identified where they went wrong.
``We did not start that game well enough and only got into our stride when we were a goal down,'' he said.
``Hamilton have been in really good form recently and have beaten us at their place twice this season so we have to be at a high tempo for the entire game.
``We have dropped down a place but there is no gloom and doom here as the season still has a long way to run.''
Hamilton will be without Jordan Kirkpatrick at Firhill after a deal was agreed to let the attacking midfielder leave the club due to a lack of first-team action.
The injured trio of Jon McShane, Kieran Millar and Stephen Hendrie all remain out for a contest that manager Billy Reid is looking forward to.
He said: ``We are playing well just now and having beaten Thistle already this season we can go there without any fear.
``We were excellent against Airdrie on Boxing Day and kick-off cannot come quick enough after our game at Livingston on Saturday was postponed.
``Thistle will remain in the title hunt all season but if we can upset their plans for a while I will not be disappointed.''
