Megginson in for Hedgemen
Brechin City have added on-loan Aberdeen youngster Mitchel Megginson to their squad ahead of the home clash with Stenhousemuir.
He is set to be involved but long-term injury absentee Charlie King remains absent, midfield grafter Craig Malloy is suspended and defender David White is also expected to miss out through illness.
Manager Jim Weir is looking for an improved defensive display from his side, saying: "We lost three bad goals against Dumbarton in midweek and need to sort that out against Stenhousemuir.
"Our defensive displays have been slipped recently and I am expecting an improvement in this game."
Weir added: "I had Mitchel at Arbroath last season on a similar basis and he is a really lively, hard working striker that gives us another good option up front."
Stenhousemuir are without injured defender Scott Gibb but Scott Fusco is available again.
Winger Grant Anderson, who missed out in midweek because of a finger injury, also comes back into contention.
Two wins in two games has lifted the Warriors off the foot of the table and boosted morale.
Manager David Irons said: "Performances have been good for a wee while now but you cannot beat picking up points to increased confidence.
"We will travel to Brechin City looking to make it three wins out of three although we know it will be a tough test as they have a really good team and a management duo in Jim Weir and Kevin McGowne that I really respect."
City comeback downs Stenhousemuir
Brechin carried on their fine home form as they swept aside struggling Stenhousemuir 3-1.
City, unbeaten at Glebe Park since September, went behind early on when Scott Dalziel finished from inside the six-yard box to give the visitors the lead on eight minutes.
The hosts levelled on 42 minutes when top striker Rory McAllister finished in the six-yard box from Neil Janczyk's deadly cross to score his 14th league goal of the season.
Ten minutes into the second half, Brechin completed their comeback. Midfielder James Redman made it 2-1 after another assist from the troublesome Janczyk.
After a fine performance and two assists, Janczyk sealed the result with a goal eight minutes from time, placing his shot into the top left corner 18-yards out to keep Brechin second in Division Two.
