Callum hoping for Topping form

Alloa are set to include on-loan Hearts midfielder Callum Topping when they host Brechin City.

City arrive in fine form having scored 18 times in new manager Ray McKinnon's first four games.

The Wasps are again without the banned Michael Doyle but on-loan Aberdeen duo Nicky Low and Mitchel Megginson are both expected to feature after shaking off injuries.

Recreation Park boss Paul Hartley said: "Brechin have had a great start under Ray and they are certainly looking like they carry a goal threat. We also have a threat so it should be a really good game."

"We played well against East Fife last weekend which was great as I was not sure how everyone involved felt after the heavy defeat against Rangers. A clean sheet and an away win was a great response."

Brechin are missing only long term injury victim Aaron Murdoch from their squad as they travel to Alloa looking for their first away win in the league this season.

McKinnon said, "We are travelling to Alloa in a good run of form which is just as well as they are a really good side.

"They can pass and move well so we have to be able to match that before going out and winning the game."

"The boys are showing a great attitude just now and killed the Scottish Cup tie against Bonnyrigg last week before half-time with four goals.

"However I am under no illusions that we will be able to do anything like that in this game which will be a really tight affair."
