Arbroath and Fifers set for battle
Scottish League One bottom club Arbroath have goalkeeper Scott Morrison available after injury as they host fellow strugglers East Fife.
The Red Lichties will be without captain Ross Chisholm, who is suspended, while Connor Birse remains out following knee surgery.
Player/manager Paul Sheerin said: "We played well to win 4-2 at Brechin last weekend and we need to build on that. We have to treat every game like a cup tie between now and the end of the season, especially this one as it could prove pivotal.
"This would be a terrific time to win two games in a row for the first time."
East Fife can climb into the relative safety of eighth place with a point at Gayfield although they will be without Gary Fisher after he dislocated an elbow against Rangers last Saturday.
Stevie Campbell is a major doubt after picking up a knock as the Fifers lost 2-0 to Stranraer in midweek, with Scott McBride (hip), Cyrus Moosavi (knee) and Ryan Stewart (knee) all still injured.
Player/manager Gary Naysmith said: "We were unfortunate not to pick up anything against Rangers and then Stranraer. With Rangers we lost an injury-time penalty and at Stranraer we should have turned early pressure into goals.
"Going to Arbroath is a real test of character now."
