Moore options up front

Cowdenbeath have brought in teenage Motherwell striker Craig Moore on loan and he goes straight into player/manager Colin Cameron's plans for the visit of promotion chasing Partick Thistle.

Kane Hemmings of Rangers and Hibs' Sam Stanton have extended their temporary stays and will face the Jags but Liam Caddis has returned to St Johnstone.

Greg Stewart and Mark Ramsay remain out with ankle injuries and Liam Cusack is not over his knee problem.

Cameron returns after a one-match ban.

"Thistle's manager may have changed this week but they still have the same strong squad," he said.

"We have played them three times this season and lost by one goal each time. With a bit more belief and a shade better luck we can win this one."

Partick begin life after boss Jackie McNamara's move to Dundee United without the injured pair of Stephen O'Donnell (ankle) and Steven Lawless (cheekbone).

Interim manager Alan Archibald will play with his former team-mate at both Thistle and Dundee United Scott Paterson in the dugout in place of assistant boss Simon Donnelly who has also left for Tannadice.

Archibald said: "Cowdenbeath may think this is a good week to get us but we have had a good season and I do not plan to make many changes. It has been a strange week but we will look to get back to normal at Central Park.

"The games between us this season have all been tight so we need to turn up and play as we would have normally."
