Molloy misses out
Brechin midfielder Craig Molloy misses out on the Angus derby against Arbroath as a result of his sending-off against Airdrie at the weekend.
Injuries continue to keep Gerry McLauchlan, Charlie King and Derek Carcary out of manager Jim Weir's squad, with the Glebe Park boss looking for his first win over his former employers since swapping sides in the summer of 2010.
Weir said: "It is always a big game for the fans when these sides play each other.
"They will be on a high after winning in another derby at Forfar on Saturday. We haven't beaten them this season and this would be a great game for that to happen in and it would also move us closer to the play-off zone."
Arbroath's Australian defender Beau Busch is a doubt for the clash.
Experienced new signing Chris Innes is likely to start for a second time if Busch does not make it.
An ankle injury continues to keep back-up goalkeeper Michael White out, with striker Jordan Elfverson's back problem still not fully resolved, meaning he misses out as well
Player-manager Paul Sheerin said: "We will need to battle hard to take all three points home with us.
"This is a massive time for the club as we face a demanding schedule and we have started it positively and long may that continue.
"We have won our last three games after a bit of a barren run and it would be great to make it four."
McLean rescues Brechin
Paul McLean's late equaliser was enough to earn Brechin a point in a 1-1 draw with Arbroath.
Chances were at a premium in the first half, but Josh Falkingham came closest to giving Arbroath the lead when his effort came back off a post on the half-hour mark.
The visitors finally broke the deadlock after 71 minutes when Steven Doris was on hand to fire home Gavin Swankie's cross.
Brechin pulled level 10 minutes from time when McLean found the top corner after good work from Paul McManus.
Falkingham could have sealed all three points in the final minute but his long-range drive was well saved by Craig Nelson.
The point means second-placed Arbroath move 11 points clear of Dumbarton as they edge closer to league leaders Cowdenbeath.
