Hardie back for Morton

Morton will be able to call on the experienced Martin Hardie for the visit of Hamilton Accies after the 36-year-old came through a reserve game in midweek unscathed following a rib injury.

Craig Reid is also available to manager Allan Moore, however Fouad Bachirou is struggling with a back problem and Peter MacDonald remains on the sidelines following foot surgery.

Moore said: ``With Partick Thistle and Dunfermline playing each other we have the chance to close the gap on at least one of them by winning this game. We struggled against a ten-man Hamilton side earlier in the season and it would be good to put on a much better performance this time.

``If we want to do anything this season, this is the type of game we should be winning.''

Hamilton Accies captain Alex Neil will sit out the second game of a three-match ban as the New Douglas Park side visit a ground where they won twice last season.

Strike pair Jon McShane and Kieran Millar remain out with knee injuries, however on-loan Kilmarnock midfielder Gary Fisher is available after an ankle injury.

Manager Billy Reid said: ``Cappielow was a happy hunting ground for us last season and it would be great if it was again, however we are coming up against a much more experienced Morton side this season.

``They have gained experience and we have lost some but we did well to get a 1-1 draw in our first meeting this season after having a man sent off so our kids will take confidence from that.``
