Cowdenbeath will be without the injured trio of Scott Linton, Liam Cusack and Greg Stewart as they host SPL St Johnstone in the Scottish Cup at the fifth time of asking.

A place away to St Mirren in the next round up is for grabs.

Albert Puigdollers will be absent as talks to end his stay at Central Park have begun.

Player-manager Colin Cameron is hoping the visit of the Perth side will be motivation his men need after losing to Falkirk on Saturday.

Cameron said: "Falkirk was our first game in three weeks and going up against another full time side so soon is not ideal.

"Hopefully the chance to shine against a top flight team will give our boys the energy they need to pull off a shock.''

St Johnstone have four players back from suspension.

Defenders Steven Anderson, Frazer Wright and Dave Mackay come back alongside Chris Millar.

On-loan Aberdeen winger Peter Pawlett will drop out though to prevent him being cup-tied.
