The 24-year-old forward signed a two-year deal with the Jags on Thursday, having been released by Huddersfield.

Midfield duo Steven Lawless (illness) and defender Aaron Muirhead (blisters) have returned to fitness and both return to the squad.

But forward Kris Doolan (dead leg) and right-back Jordan McMillan (ankle knock) are struggling and may be on the sidelines.

Ross County may be able to welcome back defender Scott Boyd for the Dingwall encounter.

Boyd sat out the season-opening 2-1 loss at Celtic with a knock but he returned to training earlier this week.

However, midfielders Richard Brittain and Ivan Spoule will miss out due to suspension.
