Cowdenbeath have brought in former Ross County and Morton goalkeeper Colin Stewart ahead of the clash with Hamilton.
Regular number one Thomas Flynn is struggling due to a hand injury.
Player-manager Colin Cameron remains out with a hamstring problem with Jason Naismith (thigh), Liam Cusack (knee) and Pablo Navas (groin) also absent.
Cameron said: ``We have brought Colin in as a trialist and I have no worries with him as he recently played three games for Stranraer.
``Hamilton had a great win in midweek over Morton but a win takes us above them and that is a great incentive.
``We defeated Hamilton 1-0 earlier in the season so we know that we can do it.''
Hamilton welcome back striker Jon McShane into their squad.
McShane has recovered from a knee injury but Jonathan Page misses out as he is suspended.
The New Douglas Park side are travelling to Fife on a high after Tuesday night's 2-1 success over leaders Morton.
Manager Billy Reid said: ``We played really well and the win lifted everyone's spirits after losing very unluckily to Falkirk in the Scottish Cup.
``We know we should have done better in the league this season than we have but hopefully we can use the Morton result as a springboard for a strong end to the season.
``Central Park is a difficult venue and we lost there earlier in the season but we want to make up for it.''
