County quartet sidelined
Ross County will be missing four players when they host Cowdenbeath.
Long-term injured Darren McCormack and midfielder Paul Lawson are still missing as well as strike duo Paul Di Giacomo and Steven Milne.
County are looking to avoid an unlikely 11-goal defeat which would see them featuring in the end of season relegation play-offs.
Manager Jimmy Calderwood said: "We can look forward to this game.
"I want our players to put on a good show as they owe the fans that after a season of massive under-achievement when you consider the quality they have."
Cowdenbeath welcome back defender Kenny Adamson from a ban but Craig Winter and Colin Cameron remain on the sidelines due to suspension.
Manager Jimmy Nicholl also has to contend with injuries to defenders Joe Mbu and Dene Droudge as well as full-back Richie Vauls and midfielder Mark Baxter, all of whom are ruled out.
Nicholl is considering resting a couple of players who are carrying knocks to ensure they are ready for the first leg of the play-offs on Wednesday.
He said: "This is a game where it would be nice to score a few goals and keep a clean sheet to ensure we go into the play-offs full of confidence."
County leave it late to wrap up points
Ross County earned their third win in a row as they beat struggling Cowdenbeath 3-0.
Michael Gardyne went close for the hosts with a 12th-minute shot which bounced back off the post.
The visitors responded positively and almost broke the deadlock when midfielder Marc McKenzie drilled in a long-range effort which Michael McGovern tipped round the post.
But it was County who forged ahead in the 32nd minute when defender Scott Morrison powered in a shot from 20 yards out which gave Ludovic Roy no chance.
Scott Boyd's bullet header made it two in the 83rd minute before substitute Mark Corcoran wrapped up the win with a powerful close-range effort in the final minute.
