Wales misses out for Raith
First Division leaders Raith Rovers are again without injured striker Gary Wales for the visit of Morton.
Defender Grant Murray and winger Scott McBride are both facing a fitness battle to be included.
The two games between the sides this season have been settled by a solitary goal in the Kirkcaldy men's favour and Starks boss John McGlynn is predicting another tight encounter this time.
McGlynn said: "I cannot envisage there being too much between us. I will gladly settle for a narrow win and keeping hold of the lead of the First Division.
"Morton are getting to a place in the table where you would be expecting them to be, however the signing of Derek Lyle shows that they certainly want to push on from there."
Morton have defender Marc Smyth available.
Morton boss Allan Moore can play Smyth as his ban for being sent-off against Airdrie in midweek will be applied in the Cup replay between the sides.
Midfielder Darren Young and on-loan Celtic striker Sean Fitzharris are doubts through injury but David MacGregor is added to the squad that faced the Diamonds after suspension.
Cappielow boss Moore said: "We have managed to move up a few places in the table recently, however I will not be settling for just that.
"I want us to push for as high as we can starting at Raith Rovers.
"We have been really unlucky in our games against them so far this season so hopefully we can grab the only goal of the game this time out."
Weatherson shines for Raith
A late equaliser by substitute striker Pete Weatherson rescued a point for Morton in their 2-2 draw with Scottish First Division leaders Raith.
The home side were 2-0 up at half-time thanks to goals by John Baird and Allan Walker.
Baird opened the scoring in the 16th minute, beating Morton keeper Colin Stewart with a right-footed shot from the centre of the area. Walker then doubled the advantage after half an hour when his shot found the back of the net from 12 yards.
However, the visitors found their form after the break.
Derek Lyle pulled a goal back in the 53rd minute when his right-footed strike found the top-right corner of David McGurn`s goal.
Raith looked to have closed out the game, but Weatherson, a tactical switch five minutes after the break, scored in the bottom-left corner from 25-yards in the 89th minute to share the points.
