Duffie blow for Bairns
Falkirk will be without Kieran Duffie as they look to get themselves back in the title race against Cowdenbeath.
Duffie has not recovered from a foot injury and the defender will miss out along with Thomas Grant who is ill. Meanwhile, Phil Roberts left the club by mutual consent this week.
Ahead of the match, Bairns technical Director Alex Smith said: "If Hamilton and Dundee draw we are in a great position to really get involved if we win. It will not be easy as Jimmy Nicholl has Cowdenbeath fighting for their lives.
"However, if we play like we did when we won at Dundee last Saturday we will do well."
Cowdenbeath have a couple of injury absentees.
The Blue Brazil will be without Darren Brownlie, who has a hamstring injury, and Kenny Adamson (foot).
Manager Jimmy Nicholl is delighted with the effort being put in by his players as they look to climb away from the bottom of the table but he wants to see them pose more of a threat.
"The players are putting everything in to get us points on board and they showed that last week by grabbing an injury-time draw with the leaders Hamilton," said Nicholl.
"If they can add a bit of potency in the final third then we can start picking up wins."
