Alloa will include two new signings for the first time when East Fife visit Recreation Park.
Former Ayr United defender Jonathan Tiffoney and on-loan Rangers youngster Callum Gallagher will both be involved.
Manager Paul Hartley also has Mitch Megginson available after agreeing a further loan deal with Aberdeen, although Nicky Low has returned to Pittodrie at the end of his loan spell.
The second-placed side are without Michael Doyle following groin surgery and Martin Grehan, who has a calf problem, while Kevin Cawley is a major doubt due to a virus.
Hartley said: ``We have an excellent home record but I know it will be tested by an East Fife side that have improved greatly under Billy Brown.
``After missing out when our game with Arbroath was postponed last week we cannot wait for kick off.''
East Fife welcome back Craig Johnstone after a two-game ban as they look for their first win in three away games and the three points that would help their play-off push.
The Fifers will be without David Muir who has a foot injury and Gareth Wardlaw who has been ill.
``I began my time at East Fife a few months ago with a game against Alloa and we lost it 1-0,'' manager Billy Brown said.
``They are a good footballing side and deservedly beat us but our league position and points tally have improved a lot since then.
``It will be good to pit our wits against Alloa and see how much closer we have got to them during my time here.``
