Martin Boyle and Craig Wighton are set to battle it out for a starting spot at Dundee with injury doubts hanging over Craig Beattie.
One of the pair is set to be handed the chance to lead the line alongside top-scorer Peter MacDonald, after Beattie tweaked his knee.
Boss John Brown confirmed the former Hearts, St Johnstone and Celtic frontman is a doubt for Saturday’s trip to Alloa Athletic, leaving the door ajar for one of his younger lights.
Boyle and 16-year-old Wighton are in pole position, should Beattie lose his fitness race.
However, also in the reckoning are fellow-forwards Carlo Monti and Leighton McIntosh, who came off the bench last weekend.
Bomber did not rule out Beattie starting but admits it will be touch and go whether he makes it.
“Beattie is about the only doubt we have,” said the manager. “He felt his knee at the end of the game.
“But that gives others opportunities who have been waiting.
“We’ve got a squad and, if there were many in it who were jumping off the page at me, they’d be in the team by now.
“They have all got something to prove.
“We all have bad games, it’s how you react to that.”
One player definitely fit and pushing for a place in the starting XI is defender Kyle Benedictus.
Bomber added: “Kyle is a promising player for the club. He needs to kick on.
“He’s been a bit unlucky with injuries so far this season but, now he is back training and over those troubles, he needs to be pushing for a start.”
Meanwhile, last night young full-back Cammy Kerr was the hero as the Dark Blues reserves ran out 3-0 winners over Stenhousemuir.
A youthful-looking Dark Blues second string made it six wins out of seven courtesy of a second-half brace from the Dundonian defender.
Also on the scoresheet for Gavin Rae’s side at Dens Park was Wighton, who netted the opener minutes after the break.
Dundee are now just two points off the top of the SPFL Reserve League trailing Morton, who beat Airdrie 4-0 on the night.
