Pars wait on Rutkiewicz
Dunfermline are hoping on-loan St Johnstone stopper Kevin Rutkiewicz can be involved against Ross County after missing out at the weekend.
However, the game looks to have come too soon for Neil McGregor with Andy Dowie, Nicky Phinn and Steven Bell also remaining sidelined.
Manager Jim McIntyre wants his men to bounce back from a disappointing day on Saturday when they lost 3-1 at home to Morton.
He said: "We have a good bunch of players here and we have the ability to bounce back quickly, of that I am sure.
"Ross County will be coming here boosted by their win at the weekend, and of course Jimmy Calderwood will be out to win over one of his former sides."
Ross County welcome defender Johnny Flynn back from suspension, but Darren McCormack and Steven Craig remain out with knocks for the trip.
Recently-appointed boss Jimmy Calderwood led the Dingwall men to their first win in four months when they beat Falkirk at the weekend and has the chance to make that a quickfire double at one of his former clubs.
Calderwood said: "We got in front at the weekend but then gave away a sloppy goal and I`m hoping we will not do that again, but fair play to the boys for coming back.
"We are travelling down to East End Park with a bit more confidence than we would have been if we had only drawn. Despite our win we are still too low in the table for my liking."
Pars perseverance pays off
Dunfermline failed to make the most of their game in hand on Scottish Division One leaders Raith as they needed Andy Kirk's late penalty to secure a 1-1 home draw against Ross County.
County had the better of the first half chances with Michael Gardyne coming close first when his 18-yard shot was saved Athletic goalkeeper Chris Smith then when his 30th minute header drifted wide.
The Pars started the second period better and Kevin Rutkiewicz headed wide.
But they were hit by a sucker-punch when County's Andrew Barrowman nodded in from Marc Fitzpatrick's cross after 67 minutes.
Dunfermline persevered though and got their rewards when Kirk equalised from the spot after 81 minutes following Jonathan Flynn's foul on Joe Cardle.
