Sheran starts Blue Toon reign against depleted Alloa
Allan Maitland could be without as many as eight players as his Alloa side provide the first test for new Peterhead boss John Sheran.
Maitland is targeting a win that would ease the Wasps` relegation fears but Darren Smith, Bryan Prunty, Ross Philp, Mark Brown and James Bloom have all already been ruled out.
Alloa could also go into battle without Nathan Taggart, Brown Ferguson, and Andy Scott who all face fitness tests.
On a positive note, Billy Gibson and Kevin Motion are available after suspension while Maitland has bolstered his squad with the addition of Hamilton midfielder Scott Pitman on loan. Fraser Forrest is in line for his third and final game as a trialist.
Maitland said: "It is far from ideal, however we will just have to get on with things."
New Peterhead boss Sheran has concerns over Daniel Moore ahead of his first game in charge in what is a real relegation scrap at Recreation Park.
Left-sided defender Moore is a doubt for the clash but everyone else in the Balmoor squad is available to the former Montrose and Cove Rangers boss.
And Sheran is not going into the clash blind, saying: "I have been out of football for 20 months but I have talked to a fair number of contacts this week about Alloa.
"Like ourselves they are going through a bad run and will see this game as an opportunity to end it.
"It has been a bit of a whirlwind week for me but I saw Peterhead play on Tuesday night and saw enough to suggest we can get back to enjoying our football again."
Stalemate in bottom of the table clash
Alloa remain seven points clear of bottom club Peterhead as the sides drew 0-0 at Recreation Park.
Despite dominating the majority of the game, the home side failed to take all three points as Andrew Scott and Stuart Noble wasted good opportunites by blasting their shots over the bar.
Peterhead could have taken the lead with six minutes to go but Callum MacDonald's thunderous drive was well blocked by Scott Walker. Then with two minutes remaining, Kevin Motion's free-kick was blocked by Scott Ross to keep the score all square.
The Blue Toon ended the game with ten men as David Donald picked up two bookings in as many minutes as the away side began to lose their discipline towards the end of the game.
