Hamilton manager Billy Reid expects midfielders Alex Neil and James Wesolowski to return from hamstring injuries for Sunday's clash against Hearts.
Wesolowski has only had half an hour of first-team action in 2010 while skipper Neil has missed the last five games.
But both have stepped up their recoveries ahead of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League encounter at Tynecastle.
"They have trained the last few days," Reid said. "We have just been making sure they are right when they come back this time.
"We have been hoping they are going to come back the last few weeks and haven't been quite right.
"I'm almost certain they will feature in the squad on Sunday."
