Russell ruled out for Rovers
Albion Rovers will be without Barry Russell when they face Stirling Albion.
Full-back Russell is ruled out again due to a hamstring problem.
Coatbridge boss Paul Martin said: "Stirling showed a great deal of fight for their new manager against Stenhousemuir and were rewarded with a 3-1 win.
"They will take confidence from that and in a lot of ways it would have been better to play them in early December than in early January.
"The key to success in this game will be will be who fights for it the most. They have had their fighting spirit renewed but we have always been fighters and hopefully we can use that to win."
Stirling Albion have added former Queen's Park and Raith midfielder Mark Ferry to their squad.
However, Ferry is unlikely to feature straight away having not played a competitive game since last May.
Defender Shaun Dillon is over his ankle problem but his lack of recent match action means he will join injured goalkeeper Sam Filler in watching from the sidelines.
Interim boss Greig McDonald led his side to a 3-1 success over Stenhousemuir in his first outing on January 2.
He said: "Everyone has been buzzing since that game and we are looking forward to facing Albion. We do know, however, that they are a well-organised side who will be looking to bounce back after a couple of defeats."
McLeish the hero for Binos
Craig McLeish scored the only goal as Stirling shocked Albion to win 1-0, despite being reduced to 10 men late on.
Stirling went ahead after 11 minutes, McLeish picking the ball up on the edge of the area and drilling an unstoppable effort into the bottom corner.
Anthony Stevenson tested Stirling goalkeeper Callum Reidford on the stroke of half-time, but his rasping drive was tipped away.
The home side missed a sitter early in the second half, with Scott Chaplain shooting wide from six yards.
John Crawley almost doubled the lead 15 minutes from time, but his stunning effort hit the crossbar.
Crawley was dismissed in the final minute of normal time, given a straight red card for violent conduct, but Stirling held on to win.
"Will David Moyes be able to turn it around at Ma..."
