Harris sits it out
Queen of the South will be without the suspended Bob Harris when they chase a fourth consecutive win at home against bottom-of-the-table Partick Thistle.
Harris sits out a ban following his red card at Falkirk last weekend, Alan Johnston is a major doubt and Sean O'Connor is still sidelined.
But Rocco Quinn has recovered from injury and should start.
Queen of the South manager Kenny Brannigan said: "We have to ensure that we make home advantage count at every opportunity.
"Thistle are in a false position and Ian McCall will be looking to get them going as soon as possible and he is capable of that.
"We need to keep doing what we have been doing down here."
Partick Thistle club captain Alan Archibald could start his first game in six months following knee surgery.
Fellow centre-back Willie Kinniburgh is also available after overcoming a knock, but the experienced John Robertson and youngster Ryan MacBeth are both out injured.
The rockbottom Jags are hoping to turn the form book upside down at top-of-the-table Queen of the South.
Assistant manager Ian Maxwell said: "Our recent record at Palmerston is not good and our recent results have not been good, but we have asked the players to put that aside and put on a performance down in Dumfries.
"We need a performance and we need a result to get our season going again."
Second-half improvement stirs Queens
Queen of the South came to life in the second half to grab a 2-1 win over Partick Thistle.
Returning Partick defender Alan Archibald had an injury setback and had to be replaced early on but it did not set the visitors back too much and they went ahead on 37 minutes thanks to Iain Flannigan.
Flannigan picked up the ball 25 yards out and his low effort flew into the Queen of the South goal.
Partick started the second period the better, but Kris Doolan's strike was saved by David Hutton, and it was the home side who took the points after they staged a late revival.
The equalising goal came when Allan Johnston struck on 76 minutes after he was slid in by Paul Burns.
They then grabbed a winner on 87 minutes when Rocco Quinn's 20-yard effort went beyond Bryn Halliwell in the Partick goal.
