Links Park prepares to host derby clash
Montrose defender Jonathan Crawford is out of the Angus derby clash against Arbroath.
Crawford is missing after undergoing knee surgery while the Gable Endies also have doubts over on-loan Dundee United midfielder Ross McCord.
Paul Watson's loan period has ended and he has returned to Forfar to further reduce manager Steven Tweed's options.
On a more positive note, Tweed is looking to tie up Celtic goalkeeper Daniele Giordano on another loan deal for a month before kick-off and top scorer Paul Tosh is available after shaking off an ankle injury.
Tweed said: "We have enjoyed success over Arbroath already this season and it would be a great start to the year to do the same again. I want a big performance ahead of our cup tie with Dunfermline next weekend."
Arbroath boss Paul Sheerin has a fully-fit squad to select from.
Sheerin goes into the encounter looking to claim the one result that has eluded him at Montrose's Links Park this season - victory.
The Red Lichties, who have been boosted by the news that former Hibernian midfielder Ross Chisholm has agreed to sign on until the end of the season, have lost and drawn at the home of their close rivals and Sheerin is out to complete the set.
He said: "We lost there in the league and drew in the cup so I am definitely looking for a win this time.
"We were on a good run before the big freeze set in and I want us to get back to winning ways as soon as possible."
Five-star display from Montrose
Arbroath brushed aside nine-man Montrose with a comfortable 5-0 win to move within just two points of league leaders Stranraer.
Josh Falkingham poked home from close range to put The Red Lichties in front after 34 minutes and Gavin Swankie doubled the advantage six minutes later when he rifled a shot into the top corner from just inside the 18-yard-box.
Montrose midfielder Chris Hegarty was dismissed for violent conduct in the 42nd minute before Falkingham added a third with a simple finish from 12 yards.
Gordon Pope then saw red for the home side, and Swankie added a fourth with a low strike before seeing his hat-trick chances spurned when Sandy Wood saved his 81st-minute penalty.
Steven Doris made it 5-0 from the spot in injury time following a foul on Swankie.
