Muir back for Fifers
East Fife boss Steve Crawford has David Muir back for the clash with Peterhead.
Muir is back from suspension and Crawford`s defensive options have been strengthened further with the news that John Ovenstone is back in contention after training on Thursday night.
Crawford said: "We are looking dangerous every time we attack teams just now and that is great, however we need to defend better.
"We lost last week to Alloa because we let in a simple third goal but we have worked on that in training and if we stick to what we did on the training ground we will do okay."
Peterhead boss Neale Cooper has a pair of new signings available.
Cooper travels to New Bayview with defender Scott Ross, who has arrived on loan from Aberdeen, and midfielder Nicky Clark on board the team bus.
The Blue Toon will be missing ankle injury victim Bobby Mann, and striker Davie Ross is also out with a knee knock with Ryan Strachan struggling with the flu.
Cooper said: "Losing Bobby is a blow because he is a big player for us.
"He is a great organiser at the back, however he was in pain from his ankle when he tried to train on Thursday night so he had to stop. Hopefully this will be the game where we bring our Cup form to the league and start picking up points."
Sloan wins it for Fifers
East Fife came from behind to complete a 2-1 home success over Peterhead and claim their first win of the season in the process.
Things didn't start well for the home side, though, as the deadlock was broken just before half-time when a Stuart Anderson cross was fired home by Martin Bavidge to give the visitors the lead.
Paul Emslie nearly added to that advantage midway through the second period but Fife custodian Paul Jarvie parried his effort away.
The equaliser came with less than 15 minutes left on the clock as Craig Johnstone converted a Scott Durie cross.
Robert Sloan sealed the comeback as he scored a left-footed free-kick from the edge of the box.
