Duo miss out for Brechin
Brechin will be without Paul McLean through suspension and Craig Molloy with a knee injury as they host Alloa in the first leg of their play-off semi-final.
But despite their absence, manager Ray McKinnon has been given a selection headache to solve.
He explained: "I have rested players over the last couple of games and the boys that have come in have done really well in our wins over Albion Rovers and East Fife. Garry Brady has given me a really nice problem to solve in the middle of the park.
"We have beaten Alloa twice and drawn once since I came here but there is no holding the upper hand going into the play-offs.
"The best team over the two legs will win and hopefully that will be Brechin."
Alloa have no suspensions to worry about and an injury-free squad, with manager Paul Hartley opting against including 15-year-old striker Scott Hynd in his squad.
The schoolboy scored the Wasps' winner in their 1-0 success at Arbroath at the weekend but Hartley is going with the tried and tested for this meeting.
He said: "Scott has done well but we have everyone available now and that includes players that gained great experience last season when we won the Third Division.
"Brechin have done really well since Ray McKinnon took over but we are happy to be going to their place for the first leg as our away form has been good all season.
"This tie will be tight and nothing will be decided after these 90 minutes."
"Will David Moyes be able to turn it around at Ma..."
