Wee Rovers looking to leapfrog Annan
Albion Rovers are without suspended Steven Canning and the injured duo of Todd Lumsden and Iain Smith as they look to overtake visitors Annan in the Third Division.
Striker John Gemmell is struggling with a knee injury and will require a fitness test before he can be included in manager Paul Martin's plans.
Martin reckons that his side can relax and enjoy themselves, saying: "There is no pressure on us as we have exceeded expectations already by challenging for the title so late into the season.
"Annan's expectations are a bit different as they stated they wanted the top four quite early in the season and to be fair to them they have handled that pressure well."
Second-placed Annan Athletic will be without the injured John MacBeth and Graeme Bell as they look to win for the seventh time in eight games.
Manager Harry Cairney is expecting an unpredictable clash, saying: "Albion Rovers are always a tough team to play and they are going into this game full of confidence on the back of beating the league leaders 3-0.
"Both sides are capable of beating each other and it will all be about which side turns up on the day."
"We had to show a lot of grit to get the three points against Clyde last Saturday and this one will be exactly the same."
Stalemate for rivals
Promotion rivals Albion Rovers and Annan Athletic managed to cancel each other out at Cliftonhill, as they had to settle for a goalless draw.
Rovers had the better of the early exchanges, with John Gemmell heading wide after just three minutes and Scott Chaplain drilling a left-foot shot straight at goalkeeper Craig Summersgill.
Annan, though, could have gone into the break in front, but midfielder Steven Sloan's lobbed shot from outside the box sailed over the crossbar.
Few chances were created by either side in the second half, although both could have grabbed all three points.
An Anthony Stevenson corner was headed wide by James Gilmartin for Albion and Andrew Aitken headed over for Annan.
