Alan Cook and Ciaran Summers sidelined for Stenhousemuir

Stenhousemuir will be without Alan Cook who has an ankle injury when deposed leaders Dunfermline visit on Saturday, with Ciaran Summers remaining on the sidelines with a knee injury.

Kieran Millar is available following a broken nose with Ochilview manager Brown Ferguson saying: "We had to grind out a win over Stranraer last weekend and that result has put us in a good frame of mind for this game.

"We have been strong at home all season and hopefully that will continue to be the case. Dunfermline will be smarting after losing to Ayr last weekend so we need to be ready for a bit of an early onslaught."

Dunfermline are without broken leg victims Ryan Williamson and Callum Fordyce with Lewis Spence also ruled out with a shoulder problem.

Former Rangers midfielder Rhys McCabe has been signed and one-time Scotland defender Steven Saunders could also be added to manager Allan Johnston's squad after playing as a trialist in an under-20's game.

Johnston said: "I am looking to add to the squad after a couple of serious injuries. I am also looking for us to bounce back after losing to Ayr but to be honest there was not a lot wrong with the display apart from missing chances.

"Stenhousemuir have been strong at home so this will be a test."
