Blue Brazil bring back O`Brien
Cowdenbeath welcome defender Thomas O'Brien back into their squad after a thigh strain for the visit of Arbroath.
Blue Brazil boss Colin Cameron is hoping the storms that have been battering Scotland will have died down before kick-off
He said: "Both Arbroath and ourselves like to pass the ball along the ground and this game should be a great advert for the Second Division.
"It would be great if the wind stays away and a lot of fans can turn up for what should be a great contest.
"The boys showed desire last week when they can back from a goal down three times at Albion Rovers and we will need that same level of desire in this game."
Arbroath player-manager Paul Sheerin has ruled himself out of the top-of-the-table clash.
Sheerin has a knee injury but striker Jordan Elfverson is available after an ankle knock.
Sheerin said: "I am afraid it will be a shirt and tie day for me which is disappointing as this would have been a great game to play in.
"Both sides will be going all out for a win and Stenhousemuir will be sitting back hoping for a draw.
"There was little between Cowdenbeath and ourselves at our place when we drew and I expect there will be little between us again, but it would be a fantastic game to win in terms of our mentality going in to the rest of the season."
Top two in timid tie
The Scottish Division Two's top two played out a goaless draw as Cowdenbeath and Arbroath struggled in difficult conditions.
There were only a handful of shots as neither goalkeeper had a save to make until the last five minutes on a pitch which passed a late inspection.
Josh Falkingham had three long-range efforts for Arbroath that all missed the target while Marc McKenzie had two similar pot-shots for Cowdenbeath.
The only save of the match came with three minutes to go, as Kieran McAnespie got his head on the end of a Gavin Swankie free-kick, but Thomas Flynn punched away in the Cowdenbeath goal.
The close-range header was the closest the match came to a goal, as both sides seemed more than happy to settle for a point in a dour affair.
