Northern Ireland star Little’s last outing for the Light Blues was against Elgin City on September 2 but prior to that he had netted eight goals in eight appearances for Ally McCoist’s side.
The 23-year-old hitman got 45 minutes under his belt in the Reserves’ 3-1 defeat to Morton at Murray Park on Tuesday night and he is now expected to be back in his manager’s plans for Saturday’s 3pm showdown against the Spiders.
Ross said: “It was good that Andy got a half against Morton earlier in the week and he’s feeling good so that’s great for us.
“Prior to his foot injury he was really prolific so if he can bring his goals back to the team that can only be a good thing.
“I’m know Andy was frustrated to pick up his injury when he did, especially in the form he was in, but I’m sure he’ll hit the ground running again.”
Perry is expecting another tough game this weekend against Gardner Speir’s league leaders but he insists Rangers are ready to bounce back following the hugely disappointing defeat to Stirling Albion at Forthbank two weeks ago.
He added: “I don’t think we have come across any easy opponent in the league so far, all the teams are making it hard for us.
“But it is a chance for us to go out and rectify the result against Stirling, we were all hurting after that game and feel we’ve got something to prove.
“For the last two weeks we have had time to think about the game and the disappointment is there and it’s been building.
“But we’ve been training really hard and our preparation has been good so hopefully we can get a good result on Saturday against a team sitting at the top of the Third Division.”
