Duo set for Dumbarton debuts
Dumbarton look set to give debuts to on-loan pair Dominic Kennedy and Ross McKinnon when Cowdenbeath visit.
The experienced Ryan Borris remains out with a groin problem, though.
Manager Alan Adamson is hoping to tighten up the Second Division's most porous defence, saying: "We are the third-highest scorers in the league but the worst defensively.
"You do not need to be a genius to work out where we need to change things, so Dominic and Ross may well get their chance to show what they can do.
"Cowdenbeath are a good side particularly from the middle to the front, so we have to ensure we keep things tight, while not losing any of our attacking edge."
Cowdenbeath will again be missing the injured trio of Dene Droughe, Danny Mackay and Mark Ramsay.
Manager Colin Cameron admitted he was in a quandary with what to do tactically for this fixture.
"Dumbarton are a bit like us in that they score a lot of goals but lose too many for their managers liking," he said.
"Everyone expects a lot of goals in this game but I would be quite happy to sneak a 1-0 win and head home with the three points.
"I have still to decide whether to go there and play it really tight and blunt their threat, or go for it in our usual style and let them worry about our forward players."
Victory keeps Cowdenbeath in the hunt
Cowdenbeath kept pace with Arbroath at the top of the Irn-Bru Second Division with a commanding 4-0 win at Dumbarton.
The visitors declared their intentions early on and took the lead after just eight minutes when Marc McKenzie curled past Jamie Ewings having been put through by Scott Linton.
It was 2-0 before the halfway point of the first half as Linton set up Jon Robertson for a close-range left-footed finish.
They extended their lead further when McKenzie crossed from the right for Jordan Morton to fire home from six yards out.
And the demolition was complete five minutes from time when Linton got the goal he deserved, slotting Lewis Coult's pass past Ewings from just inside the box.
