Hamilton boss Billy Reid believes the return to fitness of Mikael-Antoine Curier will help the club beat the drop.
The 27-year-old has been sidelined for the last six weeks but remains the club's top-scorer with five league goals and returned to action as a replacement in the 1-1 draw with Aberdeen at New Douglas Park last weekend.
"The big thing for us is Mikael coming in," said Reid. "As soon as he came on, we scored within two minutes.
"His presence on the park is a big thing for us at the moment.
"The formation we play, he is ideal for it.
"He leads the line well, and scores goals. His return will also help Dougie Imrie, because he can now go and play in a wider area."
Accies are currently three points clear of basement side Falkirk and have the chance to climb above St Mirren in the table as the pair square off at the weekend.
