Lawless cleared to play
Partick Thistle's in-form winger Steven Lawless is available to face Dumbarton after he recovered from the illness that saw him miss training earlier in this week.
David Rowson is the only absentee for the Jags as the former Aberdeen and Stoke City man is struggling with a back injury.
Thistle have won all of their five games so far this season and manager Jackie McNamara is asking his men to show that they can handle a growing sense of excitement at Firhill.
McNamara said: "Last season we really struggled in games that we were expected to win and this one probably falls into that bracket.
"I reckon that we have a stronger mind set now and this would be a great game to prove that to be the case."
Dumbarton will look to pick up their first points of the league season without midfielder Kevin Nicol and striker Pat Walker.
Nicol and Walker remain on the sidelines with groin and ankle injuries respectively.
Despite two defeats, Sons manager Alan Adamson is being upbeat about his side's prospects.
"I am happy with how we played last week against Cowdenbeath apart from the face that we never took our chances," he said. "If we start doing that then we will be okay in the First Division.
"Partick are flying just now and this will be a tough game but games like this one are the reason you work so hard to get promoted. It will not be easy but we will go out and do our best to get off the mark."
