Duo available for Dons clash
Dunfermline have midfielders Martin Hardie and Nick Phinn available for the Clydesdale Bank Premier League visit of Aberdeen.
Phinn is looking to make his first appearance of the season following hamstring problems and Hardie has recovered from a knee injury but both are short of match fitness.
Phinn is praying his injury troubles are behind him and hopes an injection in his back finally allows him to make an impact.
The 23-year-old last played a competitive game when he scored twice in a 3-0 victory over Falkirk as Dunfermline celebrated winning the Irn-Bru First Division title - and that was his first start in over two months following a calf problem.
"I've been unfortunate with calf injuries here and there and this is the worst I've had in my career, three or four months," Phinn said.
"It's been very hard having to see the boys training day in, day out and you're over at the gym. But it's been weird because I've had a bit of company, it's been a hard season for the boys injury-wise."
Phinn added: "I've been here before two or three times when I thought I was over the worst of it, and then a week or so down the line I've ended up being back on the treatment table. It's just say-a-prayer time.
"We did everything we could with the physio. The fact I kept breaking down, we thought we had to look further adrift.
"So we ended up going down to London to see a specialist about an injection in my back, which would help my hamstring as well.
"I had that done a couple of weeks ago and had no reaction since then, so fingers crossed it has worked."
Austin McCann, Craig Easton, Jason Thomson, Kevin Rutkiewicz and Steven Bell all remain on the sidelines for the hosts.
Rory Fallon and Ryan Jack will return from suspension for Aberdeen.
Midfielder Kari Arnason will be given an opportunity to prove his fitness following a hamstring problem.
However, Yoann Folly (chest) remains on the sidelines.
Magennis leaves it late to rescue Dons
Josh Magennis struck late to rescue an equaliser for Aberdeen in a dramatic 3-3 draw at Dunfermline.
Magennis, who had endured a miserable afternoon up to that point, scored with two minutes left as the Dons showed great character to wipe out the Pars' two-goal lead.
Andrew Considine opened the scoring in first-half injury time but the hosts responded after the break with strikes from Andy Barrowman, David Graham and Liam Buchanan.
Alex Keddie gave Aberdeen hope with his own goal before Magennis made amends for missing a series of earlier chances.
Despite the blustery conditions, both sides served up a first period full of penalty box action by keeping the ball on the ground.
Aberdeen went ahead in first half injury time when Considine powered in a header at the back post after connecting with Rob Milson's corner.
Craig Brown opted to replace Rory Fallon at the interval with Darren Mackie.
And the Aberdeen manager was relieved Fraser Fyvie did not need to come off just five minutes into the second period as the midfielder survived a two-footed Paddy Boyle challenge that earned the Pars full-back a yellow card.
From the free-kick, Milsom, who teed up Considine for the goal, swung a left-footed effort wide of target.
Dunfermline levelled in the 54th minute with a corner from the same part of the pitch that saw the Dons find the net.
Aberdeen goalkeeper David Gonzalez blocked Keddie's downward header after the defender met Willis' set-piece but Barrowman pounced to sweep in the rebound.
The Pars then completely turned the game around in the 62nd minute with a second goal from Graham.
The winger eased past Youl Mawene on the edge of the box and slammed a low right footed shot into the corner of the net past the outstretched Gonzalez.
Aberdeen wasted a great chance to equalise in the 69th minute through Magennis when he lashed a shot wide with Gallacher out of his goal and Dunfermline added a third seconds later.
Boyle's low drive was blocked by Gonzalez and substitute Buchanan rolled the ball into the net with his first touch of the game.
Magennis was having a torrid afternoon in front of goal after he failed to reduce the Dons' arrears following a good block by Gallacher.
Latching on to Fyvie's pass, Magennis tried to slip an effort past the keeper but an important touch by Gallacher saw the ball drift into the side netting.
Gallacher was enjoying his duel with the striker after saving another Magennis shot just moments later.
Dunfermline should have had a fourth in the 79th minute when Buchanan teed up the unmarked Barrowman in the box but the striker's shot was pushed onto the post by Gonzalez before the ball was cleared.
Dunfermline defender Keddie ensured of a nervy finale for his team by heading the ball into his own net from Milsom's corner just seconds later.
Aberdeen then levelled in the 88th minute through Magennis as he pounced on Gary Mason's poor touch in the box and powered a low drive past Gallacher from 16 yards.
Aberdeen defender Mawene then headed another Milson corner just inches wide in injury time.
