Triple blow for Brechin
Brechin will be without three players when they host East Fife.
Midfielder Alan Trouten is out with a leg injury while Darren Petrie and Craig Molloy are both suspended.
City manager Ray McKinnon has asked his side to build on a fine second-half performance against Rangers last weekend.
He said: "I was pleased with how we took the game to Rangers after a disappointing first half. We need to see that again against an East Fife side that have added some experienced players recently.
"We have the chance to close the gap on the teams in the play-off places and we must take it."
East Fife have added former Cowdenbeath full-back David Cowan to their squad and he goes straight into the group at Glebe Park.
Stevie Campbell and Nathan Austin are available after knocks but Scott McBride (groin) and Pat Clarke (shoulder) remain out.
Fifers player/manager Gary Naysmith said: "We lost bad goals to Dunfermline last weekend and that was disappointing, especially in a Derby game. We have the strongest squad that we have had for a while and hopefully that will help get us the win.
"It would be a great game to get the three points that would pull us further away from the bottom two and closer to the play-off chasing pack."
