Naismith misses out for Blue Brazil
Cowdenbeath will be without on-loan Rangers striker Kal Naismith when they face Stirling.
Naismith misses out due to a knee injury as second place meets fourth in the Second Division.
Defender Thomas O'Brien has also been ruled out through illness, with player/boss Colin Cameron, Dean Brett and Kenny Adamson all facing late fitness tests. Dene Droudge and Danny Mackay remain sidelined with long-term injuries.
Speaking ahead of the clash, Cameron has warned his side to be wary of Jocky Scott's Stirling outfit. He said: "Both of our teams came down from Division One last season and have made the transition to the Second reasonably well.
"After beating Brechin in their last game Stirling will really fancy coming here and winning to claw back some of the advantage we have on them at the moment."
Stirling are again without the injured trio of goalkeeper Callum Reidford, defender Greig MacDonald and midfielder Daly McSorley at Central Park.
Manager Scott's resources could be further stretched as Brian Allison, Shaun Fagan and Darren Smith are all struggling to make it and will need to pass fitness tests to play.
Scott is looking for his men to build on their success over Brechin in their last outing.
He said, "That game seems a long time ago now but we have to put on the same type of performance to win this one. Cowdenbeath have done well and while this should be a good game of football I am expecting it to be really tight."
Blue Brazil reach summit
Cowdenbeath climbed to the top of the table with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Stirling at Central Park.
Goals from Jordan Morton and Marc McKenzie either side of half-time did the damage as the Miners extended their unbeaten run to five.
Player-manager Colin Cameron hit the crossbar on the half-hour mark before his side took the lead three minutes later.
Stirling keeper Sam Filler fouled Morton and he picked himself up to power the penalty into the bottom right-hand corner for his fourth goal of the season.
The home side doubled their lead two minutes after the restart when McKenzie fired home Greg Stewart's pass from the edge of the area.
And Stewart almost extended the lead to three on 65 minutes but his effort came back off the bar.
