Cameron out of Stirling visit
Cowdenbeath player/manager Colin Cameron has ruled himself out of the clash with Stirling due to a knee injury.
Defender Thomas O'Brien is not yet ready after a broken foot and Lee Makel is a doubt, although Cameron is confident that John Armstrong and Liam Cusack will be available after overcoming chest infections that saw them miss training earlier in the week.
Cameron is taking nothing for granted despite the disparity in league positions between the sides, saying: "They have picked up under Grieg McDonald (Stirling boss) and I was impressed when I watched them at Arbroath.
"We lost to Forfar recently when they were at the bottom so we know we cannot take anything for granted. Our players have to be focused to get the three points."
Stirling will include new signing Kevin Kelbie for the first time as they look to end a five-game losing run.
Youngster Andy Hunter is out with a knock and Shaun Fagan is suspended, with manager McDonald saying: "We have played Cowdenbeath a lot in recent seasons and do not have a good record against them so it would be nice to change that, although it will be tough.
"No-one expects us to do anything in this game but the boys are showing a lot of spirit just now so you never know. Having Kevin in our squad gives us the big target man I had been looking for and that gives us plenty of options up front for this one."
Coult treble sees off Stirling
Lewis Coult's perfect hat-trick inspired Cowdenbeath to a 4-1 win over bottom side Stirling and send them five points clear at the top of the Scottish Second Division.
Cowdenbeath were quick out of the blocks as Coult put them ahead with a low, left-footed strike into the bottom corner in the 12th minute.
But Stirling showed spirit and Sean Dillon headed an Alan Cook corner into the path of Gary Thom to lash home the equaliser before half-time.
Cowdenbeath upped their game after the break and retook the lead when John Armstrong headed across goal to find Coult, who nodded in his ninth of the season.
Coult completed his hat-trick just before the hour with a composed right-footed finish.
Marc McKenzie then grabbed a late fourth and Joshua Flood was sent off for a foul on Kenneth Adamson to complete a miserable day for Stirling.
