Alloa, who are unbeaten in 6 games, host Morton at Recreation Park in the league for the first time since March 2007. Only midfielder Iain Flannigan, who suffered a back spasm recently, is missing for Paul Hartley’s Wasps.

Hartley said; “The Morton players will this game as an opportunity to impress their new manager and we have to be up for that challenge. We beat Morton down at their place but we will not be treating them lightly especially as they have an added incentive to win now.”

“All I can ask my players to do is to keep doing what they have been doing.”

Bottom of the table Morton, who will have the ‘Under new Management’ signs up when former Kilmarnock boss Kenny Shiels takes over on Monday have midfielder Reece Hands back in their squad after 3 months out with a pelvic problem

Belgian striker Kabba-Modou Cham, who has just completed a two game ban, misses out through a back injury with Tony Wallace, David O'Brien and Jonathon Page all absent with knocks as well.

Hopkin said: “I have seen progress in the two games I was in charge for and I want that to continue at Alloa.”
