Arbroath sweat on trio
Arbroath have a handful of injury concerns ahead of the visit of Stenhousemuir.
A knee injury is likely to keep player-manager Paul Sheerin on the sidelines. Defender Stuart Malcolm could also miss out as he has been ill this week. Forward Jordan Elfverson is a doubt with an ankle knock.
Sheerin, whose side go into the game on a three-match winless run, is looking for his men to even things up against the Ochilview side.
"Stenhousemuir gave us a bit of a battering in a 2-0 defeat at the start of the season and it would be good to get the three points from this one to make up for it," Sheerin explained.
"Our goals have dried up recently and it would also be good to put that right in this one."
Experienced midfielder Paul McHale remains sidelined for Stenhousemuir.
The Warriors` fine start to the season has been on the back of good results at home and with only one away success secured so far, manager David Irons reckons that there is no time like the present to get a second one.
He said: "We have defeated Arbroath already this season and this would be a good game to make it two. It would lift us above them in the table and winning at a ground where the home side is undefeated would also provide us with confidence.
"It will not be easy mind you as they have been really strong at Gayfield this season."
Doris spot on for Red Lichties
A late Steven Doris penalty was enough to earn Arbroath a 1-0 win over Stenhousemuir.
Arbroath came into the game just one place above Stenhousemuir in the Second Division table in 2nd and were closest to opening the scoring as Doris' left-footed effort from the edge of the area struck the crossbar in the 49th minute.
The game's turning point came eight minutes from time when Stenhousemuir goalkeeper Chris McCluskey was adjudged to have fouled Doris inside the penalty area.
McCluskey's complaints earned him a red card for foul and abusive language before Doris stepped up to place his right-footed spot-kick into the bottom left-hand corner of the goal.
That sealed a first win in four games the Red Lichties.
