Reid waits on Cerny
Hamilton are monitoring the fitness of goalkeeper Tomas Cerny ahead of their home match with Ayr.
Cerny returned to training this week after 10 days out with a shoulder injury and David Hutton will deputise if he fails to prove his fitness.
The Accies will also be without Stephen Hendrie, who is away on Scotland Under-17s duty, and injured trio Alex Neil, Kyle Wilkie and Lee Kilday.
Manager Billy Reid said: "If we defeat Ayr and then Queen of the South we will be in a healthy position.
"Ayr may be bottom, but that's a temporary position in this league and their win at St Mirren is warning enough to us."
Ayr's on-loan St Mirren midfielder Jamie McKernon will return to their squad.
McKernon missed the midweek Scottish Communities League Cup win against his parent club.
Manager Brian Reid, also without defender Martyn Campbell after knee surgery, said: "It's great to do so well in cups, but we need to start getting some points on the board in the league.
"We're a bit like Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and need to be more consistent as having a good season in the league is crucially important to the club."
Smith leaves it late for Ayr
Christopher Smith's 90th-minute header snatched a dramatic 3-2 win for Ayr at Hamilton.
Paul Currie put the hosts in front on 17 minutes from the penalty spot after Smith had fouled Matthew Paterson inside the box, with Greig Spence's header a minute before half-time doubling their advantage.
But Ayr began the second half with purpose and halved the deficit on 52 minutes when Michael Moffat swept home from inside the area.
John Robertson scored five minutes later to pull them level, the defender converting Micheal McGowan's free-kick to finish from close-range.
The match looked destined to end all-square before Smith's winner in second-half injury-time as the defender atoned for his earlier error by burying his header beyond David Hutton.
