Airdrie boss Gary Bollan must decide whether Andrew Duncan keeps his place in goal for the visit of Dunfermline.
Youngster Duncan impressed against Rangers last weekend, despite the 2-0 defeat. On-loan Rangers goalkeeper Scott Gallacher has missed out as the Diamonds have played the Ibrox side two weeks running. The recently-appointed Bollan is set to make his decision at Saturday lunch-time.
Chris O'Neil (groin) and Grant Evans (ankle) will be absent through injury but trialist Jamie Pollock is set for a second Airdrie appearance.
Bollan said: "We may have lost both games to Rangers but I saw good things and if we can build on them we will do okay against Dunfermline."
Dunfermline welcome back striker Jordan Moore, who last season had a loan spell at Airdrie, from suspension.
Faissal El Bakhtaoui will miss out with a hamstring injury and Ryan Thomson is a doubt with an ankle knock as the Pars look to consolidate second place in the table.
Manager Jim Jefferies said: "Our youngsters have stuck at things well this season and that spirit helped them defeat Stenhousemuir last week with a last-minute goal.
"We will need that spirit again as Airdrie will be out to for the win that would help start them moving upwards in the table."
