Veteran Andrews in line for debut
Albion Rovers will give a home debut to 37-year-old Marvin Andrews as they entertain runaway leaders Queen of the South.
Former Livingston, Rangers and Raith player Andrews featured against East Fife last Saturday and Rovers boss Todd Lumsden will include him again as talks over a longer stay continue.
Barry Russell returns after a ban but Albion again miss Mick O'Byrne and Kevin Green, with Lumsden looking for his men to show the same spirit that was in evidence the last time they faced the Palmerston side.
Lumsden explained: "We lost 1-0 down there but played most of the game with 10 men and everyone put in an incredible shift.
"If we can do that again with 11 men we may just get a result."
Queen of the South will be missing Mark Durnan through suspension and Willie Gibson with an ankle injury.
Despite 36 points separating the sides Palmerston boss Allan Johnston is telling his men to be wary of their Coatbridge hosts.
He explained: "This is the stage of the season where teams become very dangerous as they start fighting for their lives.
"That is what we will face at Albion Rovers.
"We beat them 1-0 at our place in a really tight game so we have to go there and do all the good things that we have been doing all season if we want to get the three points.
"There is still a long way to go."
