Mark Williams set for Arbroath debut
Arbroath will include Mark Williams against Queen's Park after he joined on loan from Alloa.
Bobby Linn is set for a recall if he passes a fitness test but ankle injuries rule out Jordan Lowdon and David Gold.
Greg Rutherford is sidelined with a hamstring problem and Craig Johnstone has a knee injury.
Manager Todd Lumsden said: "Queen's Park will be very dangerous opponents after losing 3-0 to East Stirling last weekend. They do not normally lose so heavily so they will be out to make amends.
"We also lost last weekend and we need to be a more dangerous side in the final third if we are to get the win."
Queen's Park can recall fit-again Vinny Berry and Craig McLeish with Ryan McGeever also set to return.
But Tony Quinn (hip), James Baty (groin), (ankle) and Kenny Mackay (knee) remain out. Hampden head coach Gus MacPherson is hoping to add a defender from a Championship side on loan before kick-off.
MacPherson said: "Last weekend was very disappointing as it was a poor result and a poor performance. Every team in this league has something to play and if you are off your game you get punished.
"We were, and we did. However, we have a stronger squad available for this game and that will help us bounce back."
