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.

The Problem With FA Cup Shocks...

...is that the draw for the next round is pretty shocking. Blackburn v Stoke, anybody? We also have mails on LVG and ManUnited, who drew plenty under Fergie...

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
