Jamie Stevenson is expected to be restored to the Cowdenbeath starting line up when Livingston visit Central Park.

Stevenson has recovered from the bruised shin that kept him out of Monday night's 3-0 Scottish Cup defeat to St Johnstone.

Joe Mbu has shaken off the knock he picked up in that game and will play, however Mark Ramsay continues to be absent due to illness.

Injuries again rule out Scott Linton, Liam Cusack and Greg Stewart.

Blue Brazil player/manager Colin Cameron said: "Although we lost to St Johnstone I saw a lot of positives in the game and the final score was harsh.

"We created good chances and if we play like that again we will do okay against Livingston. We drew at their place and can go into game with confidence."

Livingston will be without Craig Barr through suspension while fellow defenders Jason Talbot and Paul Watson continue to be absent through long-term injury.

Lions' head coach Gareth Evans has told his men that they are going to have to roll their sleeves up if they are to take anything home with them on Saturday.

He said: "We like to play an open and expansive way but we will not be able to do that against Cowdenbeath as they close you down so quickly and also their pitch is narrow.

"They frustrated St Johnstone the other night and created a few chances themselves so we will need to match their endeavour first and foremost before looking to win the game."
