Kieran Gibbons back for Blue Brazil
Cowdenbeath have Kieran Gibbons available to face Stenhousemuir after a suspension.
Goalkeeper Jamie Sneddon continues to be out with a thigh injury and Fraser Kerr remains absent due to a broken hand.
Manager Colin Nish said: "The players have put in a great run and we are almost safe. If we can win this game then I am pretty sure that we will be.
"If we can show the form that has seen us defeat Peterhead, Ayr United and Brechin recently then we can get the vital three points."
Stenhousemuir have Stuart Malcolm in their squad after a ban as they also look for the win that will guide them to safety.
Kieran Millar, Carlos Mazana-Martinez and Jason Scotland should return after injury but Jim Paterson is out with a back injury and Allan Smith remains absent with a groin problem.
Manager Brown Ferguson said: "We had a very disappointing result last Saturday against Ayr where we lost a goal in the first 30 seconds. We did the same at the start of the second half and never got into the game as a result.
"We need to have a strong mindset at Cowdenbeath to get the win we need."
