Bateman back from ban
Peterhead boss Neale Cooper welcomes back goalkeeper Jonathan Bateman after suspension for the visit of East Fife.
Midfielder Stuart Anderson also returns to the squad after injury, but Davie Ross (foot) is struggling and defender Daniel Moore and striker Dennis Wyness are ruled out.
Bobby Mann looks set to continue his comeback in the centre of the Blue Toon's defence.
Cooper is still disappointed by the 1-1 draw against nine-man Forfar last weekend and he is demanding an improvement.
"What happened is still sore as we should have had the game dead and buried," he said. "To drop points in those circumstances was really disappointing and one of the things we have to do better is to get a better delivery of crosses into the box."
Stewart Baillie and Stewart Murdoch return from suspension for East Fife.
Former boss Steve Crawford is again included in the squad for a game that sees Gordon Durie begin his new role as assistant to manager John Robertson.
"We have a full squad with no injuries and that is a good way to be going into what I expect to be a tough game," said Robertson.
"The boys have played well in the two games I have been in charge and I am looking forward to them making it three.
"Last weekend's game against Alloa was a hard fought win and it would be great to achieve the same again at Peterhead."
Peterhead snatch a point
A long-distance Stuart Anderson strike capped a late fightback as 10-man Peterhead scored two goals in two minutes seconds apart to salvage a 2-2 draw with East Fife.
East Fife went ahead two minutes after the break when Kurtis Byrne drilled in after David Muir's corner was only half-cleared.
Peterhead had Paul Emslie dismissed in the 55th minute when he received a yellow card for foul and abusive language.
And matters got worse for the home side five minutes later when Craig Johnstone headed in Robert Sloan's cross to double East Fife's lead.
The comeback started when Martin Bavidge scored after 87 minutes, finishing from the centre of the penalty area.
Anderson struck two minutes later, collecting the ball from Paul Campbell on the left wing before unleashing a 35-yard effort that flew into the top-left of the goal.
He almost completed an incredible turnaround in stoppage-time with a shot from 12 yards that was tipped over by Michael Brown.
