Hunter and Sneddon to debut as Airdrie host Cowdenbeath

Airdrie have added George Hunter on loan from St Johnstone and the striker looks set to make his debut against Cowdenbeath at the Excelsior Stadium.

Jordan Morton is a doubt, while a knee injury looks set to keep Marc Fitzpatrick out and Jim Lister (groin) is also likely to miss the game, with Hunter likely to deputise in his place.

Manager Gary Bollan said: "We have won two games in a row and it would be terrific to make it three. Last weekend's win over Peterhead was not the best performance but we showed a determined side to our game to get the win.

"Cowdenbeath have strengthened this week and we will need to show that same determined side to win this game."

Cowdenbeath will give a starting debut to Jamie Sneddon in goal after they parted company with Michael Andrews this week.

Andrew Murdoch has been added on loan from Rangers, but skipper John Armstrong misses out through suspension while Jack Beaumont (foot) remains absent and Kenny Adamson as well as Lewis Milne is a doubt.

Player/ manager Colin Nish is over the illness that saw him leave the field early in last Saturday's 4-2 defeat from Stenhousemuir.

The Blue Brazil boss said: "I believe that we are a good side going forward and the changes that we have made will help us defensively starting at Airdrie."
