Late tests for McKenna and Clark
Queen of the South manager Gus McPherson will give late fitness tests to Stephen McKenna and Nicky Clark ahead of the home game with Livingston.
Midfielder Daniel Carmichael remains sidelined with a leg knock, while McPherson is hoping his side can build on their success at Raith last weekend.
McPherson said: "The boys played really well as a unit and we need to take that into this game. Livingston may not have won many games, but they certainly have not lost many either.
"They have players like Mark Fotheringham, Bobby Barr, Iain Russell and Kenny Deuchar that can turn games, so we need to play at the same standard we showed at Raith to win."
Midfielder David Sinclair will miss out for Livingston after joining team-mate Liam Fox in the treatment room.
The Lions, who have lost only one of their last 10 games, are looking to end a run of three consecutive draws.
Manager Gary Bollan said: "We've adapted well to the First Division, but we could do with turning draws into wins to get us moving up the table.
"We've only lost once in 10, which is fantastic, but have only won twice is a tad frustrating.
"Queen of the South gave us major problems in the opening half of the first game of the season and had a great result at Raith Rovers last week, so we need to play well get that win."
Doonhamers rue Smith miss
Kevin Smith's penalty miss proved costly as Queen of the South lost 2-0 at home to Livingston.
The striker missed the chance to equalise when he powered his 58th-minute spot-kick straight at Andrew McNeil.
Striker Marc McNulty had earlier given the visitors a sixth-minute lead when he swept home from 20 yards.
McNulty missed a great chance to double his side's advantage on 53 minutes when Lee Robinson parried his close-range effort.
Queen of the South looked to be back in the match five minutes later when Robert Barr fouled Smith inside the box, but the striker fluffed his lines from 12 yards.
And Mark Fotheringham made him pay for the miss, converting from close range to seal the win for Livingston.
