Lewis Martin returns for Dunfermline

Ladbrokes League One leaders Dunfermline add fit-again Lewis Martin to the squad for the visit of Cowdenbeath but Callum Fordyce and Ryan Williamson are missing with broken legs.

Manager Allan Johnston has warned his side that they will not get things their own way, saying: "I watched Cowdenbeath on Tuesday night defeat Ayr 4-2. They attacked very well throughout the game and we need to be wary of their strength in that department.

"We won well at Forfar last weekend. However, we know that defensively we have a few things to improve on."

Cowdenbeath are again without Jack Beaumont and Kyle Miller, who are both suffering from foot injuries as they look to extend their winning run to five games.

Manager Colin Nish is looking for his players to rise to the challenge and said: "We went a goal down after little more than a minute and the goal looked to be a few yards offside. The players showed great character to react in the manner that they did and we will need that character again at East End Park.

"We have improved throughout the season but this will be a test."
