McKenna return boosts Brechin
Brechin striker David McKenna returns from suspension to face East Fife.
However, that boost is tempered by the news defender Ewan Moyes and star-man Rory McAllister are out with bans, while defender Gerry McLauchlan also missing out through a knock.
Boss Jim Weir is urging his men to end a run of five games without a win, saying: "If we can win this one, we will almost have pushed ourselves over in terms of a play-off place.
"We are low on bodies after a hard shift in terms of the number of games we have played.
"East Fife can still catch us but we can stop that in this game and also create a bigger gap on Airdrie. I am sure a win will lift everyone's spirits and get our campaign going again."
East Fife strikers Ryan Wallace and Steven Hislop are doubtful for the trip.
That adds to John Robertson`s worries, with the boss already missing Robert Sloan and Jim Hamilton as the Fifers look to keep their faint play-off chances alive.
Robertson said: "It is still mathematically possible to get in the play-offs so we will go to Glebe Park and look for the win.
"It would have been better to go there having held on to our lead against Stenhousemuir at the weekend, and with more pressure on Brechin as a result.
"But that did not happen so we will just get on with things the way they are. We do need to show more than we did at the weekend when we poor, especially in the first half."
East Fife edge thriller
Ryan Wallace's long-range strike seven minutes from time gave East Fife a thrilling 3-2 win at play-off hopefuls Brechin.
Brechin missed numerous first-half chances and were made to pay for their profligacy after 52 minutes, Dylan McGowan slotting home for the Fifers from Ryan Wallace's corner.
But they were level two minutes later, Neil Janczyk centring for James Redman to convert from inside the box.
City were in front after 58 minutes, Craig Molloy scoring a penalty after John Ovenstone's foul on Mitchel Megginson.
However, it was 2-2 with 63 minutes played, Wallace firing home his own spot-kick after he had been brought down by Andrew Cook.
And Wallace's second, a 25-yard effort high into the goal, won it for East Fife.
