Williamson in line for Rovers return
Captain Iain Davidson is available after a one game ban as Raith Rovers look to complete a hat-trick of wins over visitors Partick Thistle.
Midfielder Iain Williamson could also return after making a quicker than expected recovery from a foot injury he picked up against Livingston last Saturday.
Rovers manager John McGlynn said: "We thought Iain would be out for a few games but he has improved a lot quicker than expected and he could make this one."
Raith have slipped to ninth place and McGlynn wants an improvement after seven games without a win.
He added: "We have beaten Thistle home and away already this season and a third win would be great, although I am sure this acts as a motivation for them as well."
Partick Thistle look set to be without on-loan Hibs midfielder Sean Welsh due to a groin strain as they look to build on their first win of 2012 after defeating Ayr United in midweek.
Defender Willie Kinniburgh remains out with manager Jackie McNamara sensing an increased level of confidence amongst his men.
"We had been playing well but not taking our chances, but we did that against Ayr and everyone feels a lot better as a result," he said.
"Our last appearance at Stark's Park was not great as we went down 2-0 without a fight and I am looking for us to battle a lot harder this time.
"We want a win to keep pushing ourselves towards the teams in the top group."
Rovers stun Jags
John Baird struck the winner as relegation-threatened Raith came from behind to beat 10-man Partick 2-1 at Stark's Park.
Kris Doolan put the Jags in front after 28 minutes when he connected with Stephen O'Donnell's right-wing cross to drill into the bottom right-hand corner from 12 yards.
Chris Erskine was denied by Raith goalkeeper David McGurn moments after the restart before the comeback started.
Partick midfielder David Rowson fouled Baird and Allan Walker curled the resulting free-kick into the box for Brian Graham to fire home left-footed after 63 minutes.
Five minutes later, the visitors were reduced to 10 men when Paul Paton was shown a straight red card for a foul on Graham.
Baird then headed in Willie Dyer's left-wing cross 18 minutes from time to take all three points for Rovers and move them out of the First Division relegation zone.
