East Fife are again without recent signing Collin Samuel against Queen of the South due to the Trinidad and Tobago striker's application for a visa not yet being approved.
Also missing are the injured Stevie Campbell and Craig Johnstone with David White and Ross Brown dropping out due to suspension.
Manager Gordon Durie is glad to be back playing at home and said: "It has been a hard shift playing four games away from New Bayview in a row. We had done well in the first three but were poor in midweek against Cowdenbeath.
"We will need to improve a lot on that performance to take anything from a very good Queen of the South team that are favourites for the league."
Queen of the South player-manager Allan Johnston has included himself in the squad as injuries continue to affect his side.
Derek Young, Willie Gibson and Kevin Smith are all expected to be missing again through knocks but Derek Lyle and Daniel Orsi should return after missing out against Morton in midweek.
Johnston said: "I played in midweek and will do so again if required. I am delighted with the way we have went about things so far this season, it has been a real team effort.
"This will be another test as every team will want to end our unbeaten run and we need to be ready for that."
