Bottom of the table Morton will give Michal Habai until close to kick off time against Dumbarton to prove his fitness after an ankle problem.

The Greenock side are chasing only their second league win and if Habai fails to make it he will join David O’Brien and Reece Hands in missing out through injury.

Thomas O’Ware could make a first appearance of the season following a foot injury with Craig Reid and Marc Fitzpatrick both expected to shake off knocks to feature.

Cappielow manager Allan Moore said: “We need a win to kick start our season. We know that we are capable of good performances as we showed against St Johnstone in the Scottish League Cup.”

“If we can get to that level of performance again then I am sure we will do well against Dumbarton.”

The Sons, who have won their last 3 away games with the same 2-1 score-line, welcome back Chris Turner through suspension.

Garry Fleming and Scott Smith are both ruled out for Ian Murray’s men with ankle injuries.

Sons boss Ian Murray said: “We went to Morton last season bottom of the table and looking for the win that would get our season going. We did that with a 3-0 success and the confidence that win gave us helped throughout the rest of the season.”

“The roles are a bit reversed now so we have to be very wary.”
