Brechin keen to take advantage of top two meeting
Brechin will be without four players for the visit of Peterhead.
Charlie King and Kevin Byers miss out through injury while suspension keeps Gerry McLauchlan and Rory McAllister in the stands for the encounter.
And manager Jim Weir believes the Blue Toon will have been celebrating when they discovered striker McAllister would be missing.
He said: "Rory has scored against them seven times this season in two games so I am sure they were delighted when Rory was sent off against Livingston in our last league match."
With top two Ayr and Livingston facing each other at Somerset Park, Weir knows his third-placed side can capitalise. He added: "Something has to give in that game so we need to win our game to ensure we are in a position to take advantage."
Peterhead travel to Glebe Park without the services of three players.
Defensive pair Stuart Smith and Bobby Mann as well as powerful striker Martin Bavidge are each ruled out by injury.
Nevertheless, Blue Toon boss Neale Cooper is looking for his men to end a disappointing run of results against Brechin.
He said: "They have beaten us convincingly twice this season and scored nine times, which is a really poor record to have.
"It would be good to put the record a bit straight.
"We were poor against Airdrie last week and we need to find the form we started the year off with - defeating Livingston as well as Alloa before grabbing a point with a fighting display at Ayr."
Brechin beat Blue Toon
Brechin moved up to second place in Division Two with a 3-1 victory over Peterhead.
Graeme Sharp, Davie Ross and Derek Wyness all had good chances to put Peterhead in front before former Celtic trainee Ryan Strachan put the Blue Toon in front with a fine strike from 18-yards in the 32nd minute.
However, the home side improved after the break and were level in the 52nd minute through David McKenna's low drive.
McKenna then put his side in front in the 70th minute when he nodded Paul McLean's right wing cross past John Bateman and into the bottom right of the goal.
Substitute James Redman then wrapped up the points for his side in the 88th minute, converting Kevin Briers' low centre.
