Bottom of the table Morton can close the 9 point gap second bottom Cowdenbeath have on them by defeating the Fifers at Cappielow at making up for a 5-1 defeat at Central Park back in October. It will be an intriguing contest with former Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels leading Morton against a Cowdenbeath side managed by his former assistant Jimmy Nicholl.
Former Hibs striker Rowan Vine is in line for his debut after the Greenock side released striker Kabba-Moudo Cham this week. Morton also miss the injured Tony Wallace and Reece Hands with David O’Brien included for the first time since dislocating a shoulder in the Scottish League Cup win over Celtic in September.
Shiels said: “We have done will in our recent games however whilst we have getting draws Cowdenbeath have been securing wins. I was pleased with our draws against Queen of the South and Falkirk however Cowdenbeath have advanced 4 points on us.”
“We know that a win in this game gives us a terrific platform for the rest of the season so that has to be our objective.” 
Cowdenbeath, who have their last two games, have an injury doubt over Jordan Morton who is struggling with a back problem.
Manager Jimmy Nicholl said: “It was frustrating to have the break last week due to the William Hill Scottish Cup as after two wins in a row we were keen to get playing again as soon as possible. Having beaten Hamilton and Raith Rovers we are confident but not over confident as Kenny has Morton playing well and they will win games between now and the end of the season.”
“Hopefully that will not happen against us.”
