Two back from bans, one missing for Stenhousemuir
Stenhousemuir are missing the suspended Stuart Malcom against visitors Ayr, but Euan Murray and Ciaran Summers are available after their own bans.
While Kieran Millar and Carlos Mazana-Martinez should return after injury, Jim Paterson (back), Jason Scotland (calf) and Allan Smith (groin) are sidelined.
Manager Brown Ferguson said: "We have to bounce back from letting a win slip through our hands at Airdrie last weekend when we lost a late goal. We now need to go out and get some of the points we need for safety in this game.
"Ayr qualified for the play-offs a few weeks ago, however they will now be looking to get into their stride for them."
Ayr welcome back Paddy Boyle after an injury to his head, Brian Gilmour remains out with an ankle injury and Jamie Adams continues to be absent with a knee problem.
With only one win in their last five games, manager Ian McCall is looking for a return to form ahead of the play-offs.
"We have been a bit low on numbers recently but we have not played as well as we should have," he said. "We want to put that right in this game and start building some momentum ahead of our promotion push.
"Stenhousemuir will be fighting for everything so we need to be on our game."
