Duo out for table-toppers New Irn-Bru First Division leaders Morton entertain bottom of the table Dumbarton without the injured David Graham and Steven Stirling.
Greenock boss Allan Moore believes the Sons' 4-3 win at Falkirk on Saturday has done his men a favour.
"Their win is a very timely reminder that you cannot assume anything in football," he said.
"They will take a tremendous boost from it and Ian Murray will be delighted to break his duck, so we know that we have to turn up and work hard to earn the three points.
"We have hit top spot and want to stay there but that brings pressure. Thankfully it is a pressure some of our boys have been through successfully in the past and that will help in a game like this." Dumbarton are without the banned James Creaney and injured player/ manager Ian Murray as well as Pat Walker and Kevin Nicol.
Goalkeeper Stephen Grindlay is available after a one game ban with the Sons having a spring in their step after winning for only the second time this season at the weekend.
Murray said: "It was great to start a run of games against the top four sides in the division with a win.
"We took our chances well against Falkirk and we will need to be as ruthless again against Morton as we may not get too many openings.
Morton vs Dumbarton
Last modified 17:20 02/01/13
Morton suffer shock defeat Lowly Dumbarton upset leaders Morton 3-0 to end the Ton's unbeaten run stretching back to November 10.
Quickfire first-half strikes from Garry Fleming and Scott Agnew and a third from Bryan Prunty secured back-to-back victories for Dumbarton.
The champions-elect started the brighter with Dumbarton goalkeeper Jamie Ewings twice called into action to deal with Scott Taggart's drilled shot before saving the follow-up effort from Peter Weatherson.
Those saves proved pivotal as the visitors broke the deadlock through Fleming, the midfielder taking Mark Gilhaney's pass to find the bottom corner of the net after 32 minutes.
Seven minutes later it was two as Agnew directed James Lister's cross past Morton goalkeeper Derek Gaston.
The points were wrapped up 11 minutes from time after Prunty slotted home from 12 yards.
