Livingston continue to be without long-term injured duo Liam Fox and Jason Talbot as they host promoted Airdrie.
Kyle Jacobs is a doubt for the visit of the Diamonds after picking up a knock in the draw with Morton last Saturday.
First-team coach Gareth Evans has warned his side face a tough afternoon and said: "Airdrie were very strong towards the end of last season and they got life in the First Division off to a great start by winning 4-1 against Dumbarton so we need to be on our guard.
"We played some great football in the first half at Morton and then lost our way in the second. We have to play for the entire 90 minutes to get the win."
Airdrie are again without the injured Grant Evans and Kieron Stallard as they look to put Tuesday night's miserable 3-0 defeat by East Stirling in the Ramsdens Cup behind them.
The recently signed duo of Marc Warren and Jack Boyle are in line for starting roles.
Manager Jimmy Boyle said: "It was a horrible night and we got what we deserved. We do not have the squad to make a lot of changes and that may not be the right thing to do anyway as the same players did really well against Hamilton and Dumbarton.
"We seem to play well and win before playing really poorly and losing so I want us to hit a high level of play at Livingston and stay there."
