Andy Little returns to the Rangers squad for the visit of Irn-Bru Third Division leaders Queen's Park after recovering from a foot injury.
David Templeton (ankle) and Kane Hemmings (knee) are stepping up their recoveries but will not make the squad. Francisco Sandaza (broken cheekbone) remains on the sidelines.
Manager Ally McCoist said: ``Queen's Park are going very well, Gardner (Speirs) has got them playing some very good football.
``They one of the more mobile and aggressive teams in the league - they have a bit of pace and energy about them. It's a derby and we're looking forward to it.''
Third Division leaders Queen's Park include full back Andrew Robertson in their squad for the trip after he completed a two game suspension when he sat out last weekend's 2-2 draw with Annan
Giuseppe Capuano and Alan Urquhart have also been added with Hampden head coach Gardner Speirs telling his men to first and foremost show the bumper crowd at Ibrox that they are a good footballing side.
Speirs said, ``I have asked our players to play their natural game to the best of their ability and if they do that I will be pleased whatever the result.
``We need to be a lot better than we were against Annan last week to hit that target but I have confidence that the players will rise to the challenge.''
