Injuries for Livingston
Livingston centre-back Mick O'Byrne faces a late fitness test ahead of the clash with Dumbarton.
However, the game comes too soon for injured duo Jason Talbot and Keaghan Jacobs.
Livi manager Gary Bollan wants his men to get back on track following their 1-0 defeat at the hands of Forfar last weekend, and kick-off time cannot come quick enough for the West Lothian boss.
Bollan said: "I have been desperate for this game to start for days now to help us get going again after Forfar.
"We are in good form at home and I want us to show that we are back on the rails with a good win over Dumbarton."
Alan Adamson made a rousing start to his spell as interim manager last weekend as Dumbarton defeated East Fife 4-1, and the new boss hopes for more of the same.
One player definitely missing is winger Derek Carcary who has a groin problem, with Adamson hoping a sickness bug that affected the Sons earlier in the week has left no ill-effects.
Adamson said: "Last Saturday was a brilliant start. However, things were looking dodgy earlier in the week when we lost a couple of guys to a bug.
"They have told me they should be alright for this game and thankfully so far no-one else has gone down with it."M
Livi go top
Iain Russell's late goal sealed the points for Livingston as they beat Dumbarton 2-0.
Livingston hit the ground running straight from the off and should have been ahead as early as the fifth minute but Craig Barr's shot struck the post.
Paul Watson did break the deadlock after 17 minutes when he converted Aaron Conway's in-swinging corner from close range.
Kyle Jacobs and Conway fired over from 20 yards while Raffaele De Vita saw his shot saved by Stephen Grindley as Livingston went in search of their second goal.
Livi did however find their second goal as Russell's left-foot shot found the bottom corner to seal the three points for Livi and send them to the top of the table.
