Same again for Fifers
East Fife have named an unchanged squad for their match with Dumbarton.
Manager John Robertson has everyone available as his side go in search of a first win in 18 months over the Sons.
Robertson said: "It would be great to be going into our home game with Airdrie at the weekend on the back of two wins in a row and having ended a series of disappointing results against Dumbarton.
"This will be a tough game to win but three points would take us closer to where we all want to be. Despite our success on Saturday we have struggled to put good runs together but hopefully we can this time."
Dumbarton manager Alan Adamson has a suspension and injury-free squad to choose from as they look to pick up a sixth win in seven games.
That run of results has lifted the Sons into third place and Adamson is determined that his men see off the threat of the Fifers and remain there.
The Sons boss said: "We have a good record against East Fife and the games are usually high-scoring affairs but history counts for nothing once that first whistle goes.
"Cowdenbeath and Arbroath are looking pretty solid at the top of the table and virtually everyone else is chasing a play-off place. We have one of them just now and will not let it go easily."
Sons hit back for late win
Dumbarton scored two second-half goals as they came from behind to beat East Fife 2-1 at the Bayview Stadium.
Robert Linn came close to opening the scoring inside five minutes but could not keep his effort down.
The hosts took the lead after 23 minutes when Ryan Wallace played through Linn and he finished neatly inside the area.
Bryan Prunty almost equalised immediately but his effort was well saved by Michael Brown.
The Sons did hit back seven minutes after the restart as Mark Gilhaney netted with a fine strike from the edge of the box.
And the visitors edged ahead with 10 minutes remaining, Ally Graham rising highest to head home Scott Agnew's cross.
Despite a late surge from The Fifers, Dumbarton held firm to claim all three points.
