Jamie Adams and Gary Harkins back for Ayr

Ayr United have Jamie Adams and Gary Harkins available after injury as they look to defeat visitors Morton and climb off bottom spot in the Championship table.

Kevin Nesbit is available after missing last Sunday's Irn-Bru Cup win over Airdrie as he was cup-tied, but Craig Moore remains unavailable to manager Ian McCall due to a head injury.

McCall said: "Our performances have picked up in recent weeks and it looks like we have found our feet at this level.

"We now need to build on that and start putting points on board."

Morton are again without Conor Pepper, who has a knee injury, with Michael Tidser rated as a doubt with a similar problem.

However, goalkeeper Derek Gaston and Ricki Lamie could return after knocks.

On-loan Partick Thistle striker Aidan Nesbitt is added after missing out on last weekend's Irn-Bru Cup defeat by Queen's Park as he was cup-tied.

Manager Jim Duffy said: "We did not play well last Saturday as we did not play the game at a high enough pace and we need to be much sharper against Ayr.

"They have good players and will be well up for this game so we have to play well to get anything."
