Blue Brazil trio in line for debuts
Michael Gardyne could return to the Ross County squad for the visit of Cowdenbeath.
Gardyne has resumed training and has a chance of being involved, but Paul Lawson is not ready to return and Steven Craig has joined Darren McCormick as a long-tern absentee. Meanwhile, Gary Miller is suspended.
The Dingwall club are looking for their first win under Willie McStay, who said: "Every game in this league is like a cup-tie and you have to be at your best in every game.
"Having Michael back in the pool will help us in what will be a really tricky encounter.
"(Cowdenbeath boss) Jimmy Nicholl is an experienced manager and he has brought in experienced players so we need to perform well to win."
Cowdenbeath will include all three of their recent signings when they head north.
The vastly experienced pair of midfielder Lee Makel and striker Stevie Crawford are in line for debuts, with on-loan Rangers youngster Archie Campbell expected to feature as well.
Defenders Joe Mbu and Kenny Adamson are fit again, leaving only long-term absentees Dene Droudge and Danny Mackay unavailable to Central Park boss Jimmy Nicholl.
"We had 25 players at training this week and they all worked extremely hard," said Nicholl. "Ross County will be a tough trip and I cannot quite work out why they are where they are in the league.
"If County are still underneath us after this game it will have been a good day's work."
Fitzpatrick makes Marc at wrong end
Marc Fitzpatrick's second-half own goal earned Cowdenbeath a point in a 1-1 draw with Ross County.
County almost took the lead in the third minute but Steven Milne's 12-yard effort hit a post.
The home side continued to attack, with Richard Brittain and Milne both going close, and they made their dominance pay on the half hour when Jason Marr fired low past David Hay from 18 yards.
Cowdenbeath drew level after 51 minutes when Fitzpatrick put the ball into his own net from close range, and could have taken a surprise lead in the 65th minute but Archie Campbell's 25-yard strike came back off the woodwork.
County almost snatched a winner in stoppage time but Iain Vigurs effort was tipped around the post by Hay.
The draw leaves both teams lingering above the relegation zone.
