Table toppers Dundee, who lost 1-0 to second bottom Cowdenbeath last weekend, welcome back Iain Davidson after more than a month out with a hamstring problem as they host bottom placed Morton.

Stephen Hughes has dropped out of manager Paul Hartley’s plans as he has re-joined his former club East Fife on loan with the injured Stephen O’Donnell, Ryan Conroy, Steven Doris and Craig Beattie all remaining absent.

Hartley said: “We never performed against Cowdenbeath last week and lost. Our standards dropped and we were punished. It was as simple as that but to be fair to the players everyone has worked really hard in training this week.”

“We have to play well as we are facing another team battling for safety and we need to be at our best.”

The Greenock side with only one win in 13 games miss Dougie Imrie through suspension with Nicolas Caraux, Ben Sampayo and Reece Hands all ruled out with injury.

David Robertson is struggling with a hamstring injury however a fit again David O’Brien is added.

Greenock manager Kenny Shiels said: “Losing to Alloa last week was really disappointing and leaves us with a huge job to do to get off bottom spot.”

“We played well enough in terms of having plenty of possession however we are not converting that possession into goals. That is costing us dearly

“There are some very good players at Dundee but if we take our chances we can win.”
