Raith hit by Simmonds blow
Steven Bell has joined the ranks of the long-term injured ahead of Dunfermline`s home game against Raith.
The tricky winger has suffered an Achilles injury and could be replaced in the side by Alex Burke.
Also missing for the Pars will be goalkeeper Greg Paterson, defender Jack Ross and midfielder Nicky Phinn.
Assistant manager Gerry McCabe said: "It will be interesting to see how both teams react after being beaten last Saturday.
"We feel that we have match-winners in our team who will rise to the occasion and send us to the top of the table."
Stephen Simmonds has dealt the league leaders a blow ahead of the trip.
The midfielder joins Dougie Hill on the sidelines after breaking a bone in his foot.
Everyone else in the Kirkcaldy squad is available to manager John McGlynn, who is expecting both sides to put defeats last weekend behind them and come out fired up.
"Games do not come much bigger and better than this one and I am sure both teams will have moved on," said McGlynn.
"This is the type of game that you want to manage in as it has captured the imagination of the Fife public and I am looking forward to it."
Walker denies Pars
Allan Walker's injury-time header was enough to earn Scottish Division One leaders Raith a dramatic 2-2 draw which ended 10-man Dunfermline's 100% home record.
With 19 minutes gone William Gibson's cross from the right found Patrick Clarke who made no mistake from six yards to put Dunfermline in front.
The goal buoyed the home side and in the 31st minute they doubled their lead in spectacular fashion through a fine 25-yard effort from Calum Woods.
Five minutes before the break Dunfermline had a good chance to make it 3-0 but Andy Kirk headed over from Gibson's corner.
Kirk sent another effort wide after half-time as the home side continued to make the best chances.
Raith burst into life and Iain Davidson headed wide from close range before Dunfermline's Neil McGregor saw red for a second booking with 18 minutes remaining.
In the 84th minute Davidson pulled a goal back for the visitors from close range before seeing another effort cannon off the bar minutes later.
Dunfermline looked to be heading for the top of the table but in the dying moments Willie Dyer's cross found Walker who headed home from 12 yards.
