Hamilton will be without influential captain Alex Neil as they host Raith looking for their first home win of the season.
Neil begins a three-game suspension, strikers Kieran Miller and Jon McShane remain out with knee injuries and on-loan Kilmarnock midfielder Gary Fisher is struggling after picking up a hefty knock in the 2-1 defeat by Livingston last Saturday.
Boss Billy Reid said: ``We will miss Alex as he has been showing the form that made him a standout in the SPL but we will just need to get on with things.
``Things went against us in various ways against Livingston but hopefully we will keep playing in a positive manner and look to get a win over a decent Raith Rovers side.''
Raith's only injury doubt is Grant Anderson.
The former Accies winger picked up a dead leg in a midweek reserve game, with manager Grant Murray advising his chances of playing are improving every hour.
Murray has a selection headache of the right kind as strikers Brian Graham, Greig Spence and Pat Clarke are all in goalscoring form.
He said: ``All three of them scored last week in the draw with Raith Rovers and are fit and available so we are in a great position in terms of having goalscorers to choose from.
``I have to get the selection right as Hamilton are in a false position in the table and will start moving up soon but hopefully not at our expense.''
