Brechin look to pile misery on Sons
Brechin striker Graham Weir is a fitness doubt ahead of the meeting with Dumbarton at Glebe Park as he struggles with a thigh strain.
Fellow frontman Jim Lister, meanwhile, has been ruled out following hernia surgery.
Brechin boss Jim Weir is looking at things positively despite his men losing to Cowdenbeath last weekend.
Weir said: "If we can take the three points from this game we will be better off points-wise than we were at the same stage last season, so there is no point in being downbeat after one defeat.
"We played well at Central Park but need to tighten things up a bit at the back. If we do that I am sure we will do well in this game."
Midfielder Martin McBride returns from suspension for Dumbarton.
Boss Alan Adamson is hoping McBride can plug the gaps in his midfield that were exploited by Stirling in a game the Sons lost 5-1.
Adamson said: "We were drawing at half-time and then had a collapse at the start of the second half which no-one saw coming. We will be looking to bounce back and having Martin available will hopefully stiffen up the midfield that got overrun during that time."
Despite propping up the Second Division table after just two games, Adamson is being resolute and said: "There is no need to panic and we will start bouncing back up the way soon."
Summer recruit Ryan Borris remains out with a groin injury.
Agnew earns Sons point
Scott Agnew smashed in a 30-yard free-kick a minute from time to ensure 10-man Dumbarton grabbed their first point of the season in a pulsating 3-3 draw with Brechin.
Midfielder Agnew got the first of the six goals in the 11th minute when he found the top corner from just inside the area.
The Sons went 2-0 up before half-time when Agnew's cross was headed in by James Lyden.
But Brechin grabbed three goals and Dumbarton's Alan Lithgow was sent off within the first nine minutes of the second half.
Substitute Gary Fusco started the fightback, blasting home from 18 yards within 40 seconds of the restart. Then Lithgow saw red for hauling down Derek Carcary in the penalty area and Paul McManus stepped up to draw City level.
David McKenna put Brechin in front for the first time before Agnew's last-gasp free-kick meant Dumbarton snatched a draw.
