Ally Love banned as Rovers host Cowdenbeath

Paul Willis returns after injury and Callum McRobbie is available following illness, however player-manager Darren Young (knee). Darren Petrie (toe) and Andrew Barrowman (calf) are all out.

Young said: “Cowdenbeath will be well up for this game but it is a big game for us as well. If we win we could well be back in the driving seat for the play-offs.

“We played really well to win down at Ayr last Saturday and need another performance at that level to get the three points.”

Cowdenbeath are without on-loan Livingston midfielder Kieran Gibbons due to suspension.

Jamie Sneddon is also missing with a thigh injury and Fraser Kerr occupies the sidelines due to a broken hand.

Manager Colin Nish said: “We secured a great win over Brechin last weekend but I am honest enough to admit that we did not play well. We were playing to a much higher standard in the three games leading up to that one and I want us to get back to that level.

“We are still not out of relegation issues, however winning this game would take us really close to being safe.”
