Cowdenbeath wait on duo

Cowdenbeath have injury concerns over Nat Wedderburn and Chris Kane as they look to avoid fighting for survival in the play-offs by seeing off Livingston at Central Park.

Craig Johnston has been promoted from the Blue Brazil's reserve side with manager Jimmy Nicholl looking for improvement both defensively and up front.

Nicholl said: "We have been poor at the back in our last two games and lost nine goals. That has to stop and we also need our first-choice strikers Kane Hemmings and Greg Stewart to spark back into life.

"We have to win to have any chance of avoiding the play-offs so they have to get goals again."

Livingston will be without skipper Simon Mensing, who has a knee injury, as they aim to keep their promotion play-off chances alive with a win in Fife.

Also missing for the Lions is Michal Habai (heel), Ross Docherty (groin) and Andrew Barrowman (hamstring) with Danny Mullen a doubt after being injured in a reserve game.

Jason Talbot also returns from suspension, and manager John McGlynn said: "Cowdenbeath will be fighting for their lives, however we could still finish fourth so we will also be going all out for the win.

"Our performance against Hamilton last week was the best one in a while and gives us a platform to build on."
