Bottom of the table Morton have Fouad Bachirou back after a one match ban however defender Darren Cole is struggling with a groin strain.  Barrie McKay and Dougie Imrie are expected to shake off knocks to feature although Ben Sampayo and Reece Hands both remain out long term.

Cappielow manager Kenny Shiels said: “The players have worked hard to win us games but they are carrying no luck whatsoever. Last week at Raith Rovers was a great example as we were winning well into the second half and then a penalty was given against us that I do not believe was foul.”

“We know that we are running out of games but we will go out and give it our all against Hamilton.”

Hamilton, who are one goal and one point behind the Dens Park leaders, welcome back Lee Kilday from an ankle knock after 5 weeks out however player/ Alex Neil remains absent following his groin operation.

Neil said: “Morton gave us a really tough game at their place earlier in the season. It ended 1-1 and it was disappointing for us to lose the lead after going ahead. They will be battling for the win but we are going there in good form and have a lot of reasons for wanting to win this game ourselves.”

“The players played really well against Falkirk last weekend and a repeat of that would be terrific.”
