Duffy to start for Forfar
Forfar will have on-loan St Johnstone goalkeeper Neil Duffy between the posts when they take on Stenhousemuir.
First-choice shot-stopper Scott Gallacher has been ruled out as a result of the thigh knock he sustained during Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Ayr United.
Everyone else is available to stand-in boss Ian Campbell with the exception of defender Stephen Tulloch, who should be ready to make his comeback after three months out this weekend.
A win for the Loons will take them closer to the finishing line for a play-off place, and Campbell said: "It would be good to get back to winning ways but we have to play for the entire game to do so.
"We only played for half an hour on Saturday, but when we did we played really well."
On-loan Hamilton youngster Michael Devlin returns from suspension to bolster the Stenhousemuir defence for the trip, but Gary Thom is still banned.
Ochilview boss David Irons also has doubts over goalkeeper Ally Brown, defender Scott Fusco, midfielder Eric Paton and striker Scott Dalziel through injury knocks.
Irons said: "This is a massive game for us and we need to win it to get back in touch with Alloa. This is our game in hand and after it we will know exactly what we need to do to avoid the play-offs.
"We gave Livingston a tough game on Saturday, especially in the first half, and we need to play like that again to take anything from Station Park."
Cruise for Forfar
First-half goals from Christopher Templeman and Ryan Dow helped promotion-chasing Forfar beat relegation-threatened Stenhousemuir 2-0 at Station Park.
Templeman made his second chance count to give the home side the lead after 37 minutes, getting on the end of Dow's cross to nod home from inside the penalty area.
Roles were reversed in first-half injury time to make it 2-0 as Dow provided a crisp 12-yard finish from Templeman's centre.
William Lyle had a chance to pull one back for the Warriors after 69 minutes but he missed when well placed inside the box.
It was the Loons, though, who came closest to a second-half goal when Templeman headed against the crossbar from 12 yards with 11 minutes left.
