Little has now recovered from a foot injury and it is hoped the Northern Ireland star will get 45 minutes along with Kevin Kyle ahead of Saturday’s Third Division clash against Queen’s Park at Ibrox.
Little, of course, has scored eight goals from the same number of games this season and his return will be a big boost for manager Ally McCoist as will the news of Cole’s comeback.
The 20-year-old has yet to feature in a first-team game this season due to an ankle injury but playing against Morton will give the talented defender the chance to get much-needed match action under his belt.
Tommy Wilson will also field Kal Naismith, Chris Hegarty, Kyle Hutton, Francesco Stella, Andy Mitchell and Robbie Crawford against The Ton and the Reserve coach is hoping his side can build on their 4-3 away victory over Airdrie United last week.
He said: “We’re all looking forward to the game and again it will be a good test for our lads.
“Morton’s first team are up near the top of the First Division so in relative terms they should be one of the toughest teams we will come up against.
“Their Reserve side has also had a good start to the season so we will need to work hard and play well if we are to pick up three points.
“Hopefully we can make home advantage count as we were disappointed to lose 2-0 to Dumbarton in our last outing at Murray Park a couple of weeks ago.
“I thought we did well enough to win the game, we just didn’t take our chances.
“We did a bit better in that respect away to Airdrie United last week and we were pleased to win 4-3 at the Excelsior Stadium.
“But for sure we want to use the surface we have at Murray Park to dictate the way the game is played and we know the size of the pitch.
“Some of the other pitches we play on can be smaller and some are astro turf.
“So we are comfortable at home and we have to make the most of that when we take on a good Morton side."
Tomorrow night's game will now kick off at 6pm as opposed to 7.30pm.
