Six missing for Rovers

Albion Rovers could be without six players when they host Annan Athletic.

Chris Dallas is ruled out with a knee injury and Alan Reid, Ciaran Donnelly, Scott Chaplain, Liam Cusack and Mark McGuigan are all struggling with various knocks.

The Coatbridge side will move to within a point of a play-off place should they defeat the Galabank men, with manager James Ward saying: "This is a huge game in our season and a win really puts us in the mix.

"We shrugged off the Scottish Cup defeat from Rangers by defeating Elgin 5-2 at the weekend with a really good performance.

"If we attack Annan like we attacked Elgin we have a great chance."

Annan will again be without Matty Flynn (groin), Chris Jardine (ankle) and Steven Sloan (back) as they look to move to within five points of leaders Peterhead.

Manager Jim Chapman is hoping that his side produce the same type of performance that defeated the Blue Toon 2-1 at the weekend, although he admits his side still have a mountain to climb to win the title.

Chapman said: "Even if we beat Albion Rovers there will be a huge gap to Peterhead but we will keep looking to close it further.

"This will be a tough game to win as Albion have promotion hopes of their own."
