Cowdenbeath boosted their chances of survival by defeating Peterhead last weekend and now they want to follow it up by seeing off another promotion-chasing side at Central Park.
Ayr United are the visitors, with manager Colin Nish saying: “Last week’s was a good result and probably a deserved one.
“It was a good day as both Brechin and Forfar lost and that added to the positive feeling.
“The results reversed what had happened the week before when we found ourselves bottom after losing and those two teams winning.”
Nish added: “Facing Dunfermline, Peterhead and then Ayr is a really tough run. I am glad that we have gathered points already and go into this game upbeat.
“The last time we played Ayr at our place it was a terrific night. We played really well and won 4-2 just after Christmas. That was probably our second best performance of the season.
“Ayr’s title hopes have gone but they will come here looking to win as they will want to finish above Peterhead in the table. If we can play with the same approach we had against Peterhead then we can get something from this game.”
Chris Kane could return after a knock, leaving Jamie Sneddon and Fraser Kerr as the only injury absentees.
