United eye another big display
Airdrie United take on Division Two leaders Cowdenbeath at the Excelsior Stadium just three days after holding second placed Arbroath to a 2-2 draw.
The Diamonds have goalkeeper Grant Adam and midfielder Sean Lynch available after suspension.
Defender Keiron Stallard is a doubt, while Jamie Stevenson and Fraser Keast both expected to be ruled out due to injury.
Manager Jimmy Boyle has urged his men to be on their game for the whole 90 minutes.
He said: "The boys did really well to come back from two goals down to draw at Gayfield but I was disappointed that we were in that position in the first place.
"We may not the chance to come back against Cowdenbeath if we switch off especially as they will be motivated by scoring five times here the last time they visited."
Cowdenbeath welcome back Scott Linton from suspension and Lewis Coult from a head knock as they look to secure a second win of the season on Airdrie's artificial surface.
The Blue Brazil will still not be at full strength as player-manager Colin Cameron remains out with a knee injury.
Thomas O'Brien is not ready for a comeback after breaking a bone in his foot with Dene Brett a major doubt because of an ankle problem.
Cameron said: "I watched Airdrie battle for a draw against second placed Arbroath in midweek and that is warning enough for me that we are in for a hard game. We won 5-1 there the last time but this game will be much tighter."
Ramsay earns point for Blue Brazil
Mark Ramsay's second-half penalty was enough for Cowdenbeath to maintain their narrow advantage at the top of Scottish Division Two following their 1-1 draw at Airdrie.
A quiet opening period was sparked into life by Airdrie's Sean Lynch in the 39th minute.
Derek Holmes found the former Hibernian midfielder to produce an excellent finish into the top corner of the net.
The visitors drew level from the spot in the 51st minute when David Lilley fouled Scott Linton in the area and Ramsay slotted home the penalty for his eighth goal of the season.
The Blue Brazil dominated as they pressed for a winner with Marc McKenzie, Gary Fisher and Scott Linton going close, before Jamie Bain's late effort to win it for the Diamonds was blocked by Cowdenbeath goalkeeper Thomas Flynn.
