Hamilton welcome defender Jonathan Page back after a two-game ban as they look to defeat Dumbarton for the first time this season.

Everyone in the New Douglas Park squad is available as manager Billy Reid looks for his side to secure only their second league win in eight games.

Reid said: "We know that we should have won more games and have more points on board than we have. Hopefully we can start putting that right against Dumbarton.

"We have talked about being a better team than seventh place and now we need to prove it.

"Dumbarton have been difficult opponents for us all season and we needed to score twice late on to even get a draw against them, so we know it will be a difficult game."

Dumbarton hope to have Nicky Phinn available after a calf injury in what will be their first league game at New Douglas Park in almost nine years.

Bryan Prunty is a major doubt with his calf problem and Stuart Urquhart is a major doubt due to a groin injury, but former Scotland striker Robbie Winters is set to feature again as a trialist.

Manager Ian Murray said: "We haven't won in our last four games but no-one has streaked away from us.

"We can use a win in this game to put pressure on other teams and indeed climb the table.

"We lost 3-0 to Partick Thistle on Saturday but parts of that game really pleased me, so we are well up for this one."
