Dumbarton's recent signing Chris Turner serves the final game of the three-game ban that was transferred over from his Shamrock Rovers' days as the Sons look to clinch their first points of the season against Hamilton.
Striker Pat Walker remains sidelined with a foot injury, while manager Alan Adamson will look to freshen things up after a run of five defeats.
On-loan St Mirren winger Mark Lamont is in line for a start after scoring twice in a reserve game during the week.
Adamson said: ``We have a huge incentive to win this game as we can go above Hamilton if we beat them.
``I will make a few changes as although we haven't been playing badly we're coming up short and that needs to change.''
Hamilton have been dealt a blow as striker Jon McShane has been ruled out due to a knee injury.
McShane joins fellow forwards Kieran Miller and Andy Ryan on the sidelines as Hamilton chase their first league win of the season.
Manager Billy Reid said: ``It's disappointing to be without Jon as he adds something different to our attack due to his physical presence.
``We need to start getting more points on board and get moving in the league and this would be the perfect game to start doing that in.
``We started well against Falkirk last week and then dipped before finishing strongly. A consistent 90 minutes would help us win.''
