Albion low on numbers
Albion Rovers have an injury crisis as they host East Stirling looking to keep alive their faint hopes of a play-off place.
Chris Dallas (knee), Mark McGuigan (ankle) and David Crawford (hamstring) are all definitely absentees, while boss James Ward has doubts over the fitness of Ciaran Donnelly, Alan Reid, Barry Russell and Liam Cusack.
Albion are seven points adrift of the play-off places with five games to play and Ward is desperate for a home victory.
Ward said: "We are low on numbers as it is and we are in a must win situation so we have to get on with it. East Stirling need a win as well so the two sides will look to get the three points and hope results elsewhere go in their favour."
The Shire have been hit with selection problems in their shaky defence ahead of a clash key for their own play-off aspirations.
John Coughlin's men, who have lost their last three, are four points behind fourth-placed Stirling but go into Saturday's game without the suspended Michael Bolochoweckyj and Michael Herd (hamstring).
Head coach Coughlin said: "We have lost 10 goals in our last three games which is unlike us and not what you need at the sharp end of the season. It is something we have to rectify if we are to keep in the play-off chase.
"This is pretty close to a must win game for both side as whoever loses it will find themselves nearly out of the race for the top four."
