Nicholl short on numbers
Cowdenbeath are short in numbers as they look to earn their fourth win of the season over visitors Stirling Albion.
Striker Archie Campbell has returned to Rangers after his loan spell ended and suspension has ruled out Kenny Adamson, Colin Cameron and Craig Winter.
The defensive duo of Joe Mbu and Dene Droudge continue to miss out through injury and Richie Vauls and Mark Baxter are both doubts.
Yet manager Jimmy Nicholl is at least boosted by the return of centre-back John Armstrong after injury.
Nicholl said: "We have to win this one and hope that Ross County drop something at Falkirk in order that we can take our fight against the relegation play-offs to the last day up at Dingwall."
Stirling Albion manager Jocky Scott will check on the fitness of defenders Jonathan Brown, Ross Forsyth, Scott Buist and Martyn Corrigan.
Experienced campaigner Scott has given the club a boost by agreeing to sign on again for next season.
And he hopes that the trip to Central Park will see his side end their winless run that stretches back over six months.
Scott said: "Everything we do now is about preparing for life in the Second Division, so this game is hugely important.
"A win in our last two games would see everyone go into the summer break without that record in place and looking forward to getting going again."
Crawford goal not enough
Steven Crawford's solitary goal handed Cowdenbeath a 1-0 win over Stirling but results elsewhere means their hopes of avoiding a relegation play-off are all but over.
The Blue Brazil occupy the ninth spot going into the final day three points behind rivals Ross County.
But a huge goal difference deficit means their hopes are slim.
The visitors, playing without pressure following their relegation earlier in April, had the better chances
Paul McHale swung over a corner for Scott Buist to head goalward but his effort was weak.
The laboured pace continued in the second period as Cowdenbeath struggled to ignite their survival fight.
Thomas O'Brien got on the end of Scott Linton's corner as the hosts finally threatened, however McHale cleared the danger.
Their persistence finally paid dividends with 11 minutes remaining.
Lee Makel found room on the right hand side of the box and his pass allowed Crawford to fire in the winner.
