Masterton boost for Alloa
Alloa hope to have midfielder Steve Masterton available after nearly two months out with a knee injury as they look to avenge Elgin's 5-0 victory against them earlier this season.
Masterton returned to full training this week and is in line for his comeback but Ross McCord, Peter Inness and Kevin McHattie are doubts.
Recreation Park manager Paul Hartley said: "We have been strong at home all season and we are really keen to keep that going against what we know is a good side.
"We could have been top going into this game but lost a two-goal lead at Berwick last week.
"I have told the players to forget all about that and just concentrate on defeating Elgin."
Elgin player-assistant manager Barry Wilson will miss the match due to family commitments, and Borough Briggs boss Ross Jack is envious of the resources available to his opponents.
Jack, who will also be missing Paul Kaczan, Craig Frizzell and Steven Edwards through injury said: "Alloa have added to their squad a few times since we played them at our place and only a couple of weeks ago they brought in two SPL youngsters.
"A repeat of our win over them (Elgin were 5-0 victors in a game between these two sides earlier this season) would be very welcome but we recognise that we will need to play at our very best to take anything.
"They have a great record at home but their pitch suits our passing style so we will give it a real go and see where that takes us."
Cawley helps Alloa to victory
Kevin Cawley hit his ninth league goal to help 10-man Alloa to a 3-0 win over Elgin.
Alloa took the lead after 16 minutes through Mark Docherty's stunning volley from a Graeme Holmes centre.
Cawley went close to stretching the lead but his effort rattled the bar.
The home side did double their advantage just before the hour, this time Cawley collected Stephen May's cross and slammed high into the net.
Elgin had a chance to get back into the game from the spot when Paul Millar was fouled by Ben Gordon, who was given a straight red card just after the hour. Jason Crooks stepped up but Scott Bain guessed right and saved.
Alloa made the score more emphatic in injury time when Ryan McCord drilled home from the edge of the area.
