Dunfermline midfielder Stephen Husband is in line to make his first start of the season against Fife rivals Raith at East End Park after completing two consecutive bans.
Goalkeeper Michal Hrivnak is struggling with a dislocated toe while a knee injury means Alan Smith remains sidelined, but Luke Johnston could return after illness.
Chris Kane is available as his ban for getting sent off in the 3-2 home defeat to Arbroath at the weekend will be served in the league.
Manager Jim Jefferies is delighted to have the derby encounter, saying: "Saturday's defeat was disappointing but having this game means no-one can dwell on it."
Raith have a fully-fit squad at their disposal as they look for their second win in a derby match in three days.
The Kirkcaldy side defeated Cowdenbeath 4-3 in a pulsating match on Saturday and manager Grant Murray is looking forward to another action-packed encounter against the Pars.
Murray said: "Dunfermline and Raith meetings are always big games for both clubs and terrific encounters. It would be great to add a win against them and a passage to the next round to the win over Cowdenbeath.
"They lost to Arbroath at the weekend and we need to be wary as they will see a win over us as the perfect response."
