Campbell the only worry for Brown

East Fife will be at full strength for the visit of Brechin City if Stevie Campbell shakes off an ankle knock.

They have to beat their visitors and hope that Stranraer slip up against Stenhousemuir to avoid being in the relegation play-offs.

Manager Billy Brown said: "We know that if we can win this and stay up then it will have been a great escape.

"We are approaching it as a normal game and are not going to do anything daft attacking wise as we are not chasing goal difference.

"A 1-0 win would do if Stranraer drop anything but to do that we have to ensure that we remain tight at the back.

"We should have won against the champions Queen of the South last week and a repeat of that standard would be great."

Craig Molloy will be Brechin City's only absentee with a knee injury as they warm up for their play-off semi-finals against Alloa.

Manager Ray McKinnon is planning to make changes following a demanding schedule of games over recent weeks.

McKinnon said: "I will make one or two alterations after our win over Albion Rovers in midweek. I cannot make too many as we do not have that big a squad to make many more.

"I want us to win this game as I don't want to be heading into the play-offs on the back of a defeat.

"East Fife have a lot to play for so I know that is going to be a really competitive game and perfect for us to get warmed up for meeting Alloa."
