Dumbarton midfielder Garry Fleming will miss out against Alloa at the Bet Butler Stadium due to an ankle injury.
The Sons are looking to repeat September's 2-1 win over the Wasps.
Manager Ian Murray said: "We lost an early goal to Berwick in our Scottish Cup tie at the weekend but responded in a really professional way to win through 3-1.
"We need that same level of professionalism to see off Alloa. We have not won at home in the league often enough this season and it would be good to put that right."
Alloa midfielder Iain Flannigan is sidelined by a back injury as they look to jump back into fourth place in the Championship table.
Manager Paul Hartley has not let his focus waver despite interest from Inverness.
He said: "Dumbarton have been terrific this season and there is very little between the sides. They won the first game between s and that was a very tight game and I would imagine this meeting will be the same.
"The two sides have over-performed this season and both of us will be out for that to continue by winning this game."
