Matty Flynn out for Annan

Annan miss Matty Flynn against visitors Arbroath after he was dismissed during a chaotic ending to last Saturday's 2-2 draw at Elgin.

Peter Weatherson returns, but a calf injury has seen Bryan Gilfillan end his time with the club, while a back problem keeps Jordan Morton out.

Kevin Nicoll and Ryan McStay are doubts, with Galabank manager Jim Chapman saying: "For 88 minutes we looked on for a good win at Borough Briggs, however a disputed penalty saw Elgin level and a lot of bad feeling created.

"We are very sore about what happened, however we need to channel that disappointment into a powerful performance against Arbroath."

Arbroath have Mark Williams available to return after a head knock, however manager Dick Campbell has delayed naming his team as Craig Johnstone, Craig Wilson, Kane Hester and Josh Skelly are all injury doubts.

Campbell said: "Annan are an experienced team and a physical team and we need to handle that.

"They also have a lot to play for so we need to match that despite having only an improved league position to play for.

"I have been pleased with the effort put in by the players since I came in last month however that effort cannot drop as next season starts now for Arbroath."
