McKeown added to Beath squad

Cowdenbeath will add new loan signing Rory McKeown from Kilmarnock to a fully fit squad that looks for a second win of the season over leaders Dundee.

Central Park manager Jimmy Nicholl has also secured the services of Killie's James Fowler for a further month on loan as they continue their fight to move away from second bottom place.

Nicholl said: "We did terrifically well to win at Dens Park back in December, however since then Paul Hartley has come in and taken Dundee to two wins out of two. Defeating Dundee again will be difficult but not impossible as the players will give their all again."

The Dens Park side have Christian Nade and Ryan Conroy facing fitness tests, with Craig Wighton a major doubt due to illness. Nicky Riley is available after a knock.

Knee injuries keep Stephen O'Donnell and Craig Beattie away from the action, with a stomach problem also seeing Steven Doris remain absent.

Manager Hartley said: "I will not be kidded on by anyone, this is a really tough fixture for Dundee. Jimmy Nicholl has done a fine job there and they are fighting very hard to get out of the bottom two.

"We are a target at the top of the table and we need to handle that."
