Livingston striker Marc McNulty is a major doubt for the visit of Cowdenbeath as he is still troubled by the hamstring injury that forced him to miss last weekend's 3-2 defeat to Dumbarton.
The Lions are already missing Ross Docherty with a groin problem, while knee injuries are keeping out Jason Talbot and Keaghan Jacobs.
Head coach Gareth Evans said: "It was disappointing to lose last Saturday but I'm not planning too many changes as we created lots of chances.
"A win gets the Dumbarton game out of our system and we can look forward to putting on a good run until the end of the season.
"Cowdenbeath have done really well in their last two games to score eight times and beat Falkirk and Dunfermline, so we are well warned.''
Cowdenbeath will look to make it three wins in a row but midfielder Jamie Stevenson misses out due to a groin injury he sustained in Tuesday night's 4-2 win over Dunfermline.
Player-manager Colin Cameron will not play due to illness, while an ankle injury keeps Mark Ramsay out and a knee problem forces Liam Cusack onto the sidelines.
Craig Moore, Kane Hemmings and Lewis Coult are expected to overcome knocks to feature, with Cameron saying: "We have been putting in good performances for a while but we are taking our chances now.
"Livingston are a good side who will be looking to bounce back after losing to Dumbarton but we are going there with a lot of self-belief.''
