Watson and Hopkirk miss Shire visit
Annan will be without Peter Watson (suspended) and David Hopkirk (foot) for the visit of East Stirling.
However, Ally Love and Kenny MacKay have returned to training and could feature for second-placed Athletic as they look to keep the pressure on leaders Peterhead.
Manager Jim Chapman said: "This will be the usual chess match between their head coach John Coughlin and I. We have faced each other many times and are always looking for a new way to outdo each other.
"They will be determined to add to their good win last weekend but my players have shown great resilience recently. If they do that again, then we can win."
Fit-again Ross O'Donoghue will return to the East Stirling squad but captain Kevin Turner misses out once more with an ankle injury.
Shire boss Coughlin is eyeing a repeat of his side's victory at Galabank in October.
"We had a terrific win at Annan earlier in the season," he said. "That was secured through a very disciplined and organised performance and if we go about things in the same manner this time, we can get the same outcome.
"We played really well in the second half against Elgin last weekend and if we start like that against Annan and keep it going, then I will be delighted."
