Duo sidelined for in-form Brechin
Second-placed Brechin will be missing full-back Paul McLean and midfielder Charlie King when Alloa visit Glebe Park.
Gerry McLauchlan, Jamie Redman and Rory McAllister are expected to feature despite carrying knocks, though.
Manager Jim Weir has urged his players to continue their recent form following the 6-0 hammering of Dumbarton on Saturday.
He said: "The title is Livingston's to throw away but I want my side to finish as high up the table as we can.
"Alloa will come here and battle for everything, but, having scored six times against Dumbarton on Saturday, I do not want our standards to drop.
"If it is the play-offs for Brechin I want to be going into them with a bit of momentum behind us."
Manager Allan Maitland will be without Brown Ferguson.
The midfielder has picked up a slight knock and will not feature, while trialist Fraser Forrest is also unavailable after playing the maximum three games permitted.
Maitland's resources are stretched as he is already without Ross Philp, James Bloom, Darren Smith, Bryan Prunty and Nathan Taggart.
Those problems are tempered slightly, though, with Mark Brown`s return to the fold.
Maitland said: "The squad are putting in a fantastic effort and we are looking a bit more solid defensively which is good timing as Brechin will be flying after their six goals at the weekend.
"It would do our confidence a lot of good to take something from this game."
Brechin stay second
Brechin maintained their grip on second place in the Scottish Third Division with a hard fought 3-2 home win over Alloa
City took the lead after four minutes when Rory McAllister netted his 21st league goal of the season from long range.
It was 2-0 10 minutes later when David McKenna found Craig Molloy who fired in from 12 yards.
Alloa did pull one back five minutes before the break though through James Lister's 25-yarder.
Both sides had second-half chances before Neil Janczyk made it 3-1 12 minutes from time with his own 25-yard effort.
However, Athletic kept fighting and netted a deserved second goal in injury time when Michael McGowan converted a penalty after Ewan Moyes' foul on Stuart Noble.
