Michael Devlin should return for the Accies, who have not won in their last 4 league games and slipped to second place as a result.

Devlin is completed a full week of training following a knock, however player/ manager Alex Neil continues to be out with a hernia problem and midfielder Jonathan Routledge’s knee injury keeps him out.

Neil said: “We have been missing chances and that has cost us points against both Alloa and Dumbarton recently.  We are playing well however we need to be more clinical in front of goal.”

“Morton will be looking to get a win for their new manager so we face a tough challenge as Kenny Shiels will be making an impact in their dressing room.”

Bottom of the table Morton have brought in Barrie Mackay on loan from Rangers as well as former Ibrox defender Darren Cole to bolster their squad after the release of Mark McLaughlin and Nacho Novo earlier this week

The Greenock side miss the injured Thomas O’Ware, Jonathan Page, Tony Wallace and David O’Brien with recently appointed manager Shiels saying: “It was disappointing to get my period in charge off to a 2-0 defeat from Falkirk. However we have had a good week training together and we have a couple of boys coming in that will want to make an impression so I am looking forward to facing Hamilton.”

“The boys need to start showing that they have the correct mentality to handle our position and I am looking for that to happen at New Douglas Park.”
