Chris Turner back from suspension for Cowdenbeath

Cowdenbeath can call on Chris Turner to face visitors Edinburgh City.

The midfielder's suspension for his sending-off against Celtic's under-20s in midweek will be served in next season's Irn-Bru Cup.

Injuries again rule out Kenny Adamson (back) and Gerry McLauchlan (rib) with manager Liam Fox looking for his side to show a ruthless streak.

Fox said: "We are progressing as a side which is pleasing but we know that we need to start winning games to show that progress in a more tangible fashion. Against Celtic in midweek we created a number of very good chances but missed them.

"We need to do better to beat Edinburgh City."

Edinburgh City's skipper Joe Mbu misses out against his former side due to suspension however Ouzy See is available after a groin injury although Ross Allum is a doubt.

The SPFL's newest club are on the look-out for their first point with manager Gary Jardine saying: "We went up to Elgin last weekend and lost 3-0, however we carried on with our education at this level. We need to turn what we have learned into performances and get points on board.

"Cowdenbeath are a good side who will be there or thereabouts when the prizes are awarded at the end of the season, but we will give it a go."
