Maurice Edu is expect to take the place of Kevin Thomson who is doubtful with an ankle problem whilst the skipper Barry Ferguson will be held back till the weekend. The Accies will be without Mark McLaughlin to injury, with Martin Canning and Simon Mensing who is in the sin-bin.

In facing the Gers at Ibrox, Accie boss Billy Reid noted:

"We'll look forward to going to Ibrox for the first occasion for many a year and meet the challenge head on."
