Triple boost for Brechin

Brechin have Gareth Rodger and Derek Carcary available after injury and goalkeeper Michael Andrews back after suspension as they look to deal a fatal blow to Stenhousemuir's promotion hopes.

Craig Molloy is the only absentee due to a knee problem.

Manager Ray McKinnon said: "This is the strongest squad I have had available to me for some weeks now and that bodes well for the play-offs.

"Stenhousemuir have plenty to play for and that suits us as we want to keep things as competitive as possible before our push for promotion.

"They have done well recently to beat East Fife, Queen of the South and Ayr United and still be in the chase, but we will be looking to end their run."

Stenhousemuir are without top goalscorer John Gemmell through suspension as they look for the win that will keep them in the play-off chase.

Also missing for the Warriors will be Scott Buist who requires a knee operation and Brown Ferguson who has just had ankle surgery. However, Stewart Kean could return after a calf problem.

Ochilview manager Martyn Corrigan said: "We have won our last three games and need to win our next two to have any chance of promotion. The players have been under a bit of pressure but they have responded well.

"However, we know that if we lose and Forfar or Arbroath win then our chance has gone.

"Brechin are a good side but hopefully we can get the win and keep things going for another week."
