New Arbroath boss Campbell without banned Little
Arbroath's new manager Dick Campbell is without the suspended Ricky Little when they face East Stirling.
Craig Johnstone remains out with a knee injury with Campbell wants to recover from a 3-0 defeat at Berwick.
He said: "Things got off to a disappointing start down at Berwick however I only met the players before the game.
"We had a great training session and a great chat on Thursday and cannot wait to get going against East Stirling. Hopefully the players have taken on board what I would like them to do and we can get our home games off to a winning start."
East Stirling, bottom of League 2, are without John Fraser who is suspended with Ross Gilmour and Michael Wallace missing with foot injuries and Billy Vidler (knee) and Max Wright (calf) also out.
Neil McCabe and Chris Townsley are major doubts and head coach Craig Tulley knows they must win.
He said: "A draw is not really any use to us so we will be going out for the win at Gayfield. It would pull us to within two points of Arbroath and we can achieve it if we tighten up at the back.
"We know that the Arbroath players will be out to impress a new manager so this really is a massive game."
