McKenna banned for Doonhamers
Queen of the South's Stephen McKenna sits out against Cowdenbeath through suspension.
The midfielder missed Tuesday night's game with Ross County but it was abandoned so did not count.
Midfield pair Rocco Quinn and Paul Burns could return after hamstring injuries but David Weatherston and Daniel Orsi will miss out again.
Doonhamer boss Kenny Brannigan said: "Between one thing and another April has been a really disappointing month for us so far and it is time for that to end. Our defence needs to tighten up and our strikers need to start scoring again."
"It would be great to defeat Cowdenbeath and lift everyone's spirits about the place again."
Cowdenbeath manager Jimmy Nicholl has Colin Cameron and Archie Campbell fully fit and available.
But Bob Malcolm, John Robertson and Joe Mbu all remain out of the Blue Brazil defence through injury.
Goalkeeper David Hay remains a doubt so Ludovic Roy will continue between the sticks if he fails a fitness test.
Mark Baxter is another doubt for the Central park men.
The message from Nicholl to his ninth-placed team is simple
He said: "Win our last three games and we will avoid the play-offs. It is a big ask but I believe that we can do it and if we can win down at Queen of the South it will start things off very nicely.
Nine-man Beath pay the penalty
Cowdenbeath endured a nightmare afternoon as they had two men sent off and blew the chance to boost their relegation worries in a 2-2 draw at Queen of South.
The hosts had a man sent off, too, but Archie Campbell missed out on a hat-trick that would have delivered a vital win from the penalty spot.
Campbell fired them in front after two minutes, finding the bottom corner from 12 yards, before Daniel Carmichael levelled the scores 15 minutes later with a close-range finish.
Ryan McGuffie fouled Thomas O'Brien in the area, allowing Campbell to dispatch his second from the spot just past the half hour.
Queens equalised through Derek Holmes on the verge of half-time with a curling effort from 18 yards before the second half drama.
Craig Reid sent Campbell tumbling in the area - earning himself a red card - but the striker could not find the net as Roderick McKenzie pulled off an excellent save.
The visitors were then down to 10 as Kenneth Adamson picked up a second booking before Colin Cameron joined him for an early bath, also for two yellows.
