Trio still missing for Dunfermline

League One leaders Dunfermline are again without Ryan Williamson and Callum Fordyce (broken legs) and Lewis Martin (illness) when they host Stenhousemuir.

Manager Allan Johnston said: "We secured a great 6-1 win over Stranraer last weekend due to the pace and intensity that we played at.

"We also showed the clinical nature that had been missing for a few games and that allowed us to score a good number of goals.

"Stenhousemuir did well the last time they visited us so we need to be at our best again to secure the win that will take us another step closer to where we want to be."

Stenhousemuir goalkeeper Jamie Barclay looks set to continue his return to fitness following a thigh injury with a place on the bench in Fife.

Former Par Allan Smith misses out with a groin injury, with manager Brown Ferguson saying: "I will be making changes to our line-up as we have had a tough run of fixtures and we need to have plenty of energy on the park at Dunfermline.

"The last time we visited we were the better side but we lost 1-0 as they found a way to keep us out and to nick a goal, even though we defended well.

"It would be good to turn that around."
