Absentees mither McPherson
Queen of the South defender Craig Reid has been ruled out of his side's home fixture with Dundee due to a groin injury.
Manager Gus McPherson will also be without the suspended Kevin Smith and fellow striker Marc McCusker, who is struggling with a groin injury.
Midfielder Scott McLaughlin is rated as having a 50/50 chance of featuring due to an unspecified injury.
McPherson said: "We have a few concerns, but we're back playing at home where we've done well this season.
"It was frustrating losing at Ayr last week, particularly to another late goal, but if we can repeat the form that saw off Hamilton and Morton recently at our place we'll do ok in this one."
Dundee's new signing Craig Dargo must wait for his debut as he lacks match fitness.
The former Inverness Caledonian Thistle and St Mirren forward, 32, joined Dundee for training this week, but is not expected to feature as a trialist.
Leighton McIntosh is available after Scotland Under-19s duty and Graham Bayne gives manager Barry Smith an extra option, but Jake Hyde remains sidelined with a knee injury.
Smith said: "We're sitting at the bottom of the table because we haven't taken our chances.
"Gus McPherson will have Queen of the South well-disciplined, but we can win this game if we show a more clinical side to our game."
Dour draw for struggling duo
Queen of the South and Dundee both moved up a place after a dour 0-0 draw at Palmerston Park.
The two sides began the day as the bottom two, in ninth and 10th respectively, but both climbed above Ayr after they were thrashed at Ross County.
Dundee's Ross Chisholm was denied by home side goalkeeper Lee Robinson after a quarter of an hour and Robinson again had to be alert to deny Nicholas Riley 13 minutes later.
Nicky Clark fired over the bar for the hosts shortly before half-time and Robert Douglas dealt comfortably with Daniel Carmichael's shot from the edge of the area with 20 minutes left.
Ryan Conroy could have been the hero after coming off the bench, but the striker fired wide from six yards.
