Loanee in line for debut
Montrose have brought in Lloyd Young from East Fife on loan for a month ahead of the visit of second-placed Alloa to Links Park.
The Gable Endies also welcome back Jonathan Smart after injury, but fellow defender Alan Campbell remains sidelined with a knock.
Manager Ray Farningham is hoping Smart's presence shores up a defence that leaked five goals against Berwick last weekend.
He said: "Alloa are the best footballing side in this division and we will need to defend a whole lot better than we have been to keep them out.
"Having Jonathan available will help but everyone in the team has a role to play in defending."
Alloa midfielder Ryan McCord is available for the Wasps following a one-match ban.
But his brother Ross is not making the trip to his former club after picking up an injury.
Stevie Masterton remains out due to a knee ligament injury with manager Paul Hartley looking for his side to bounce back after a disappointing 1-1 draw with East Stirling last weekend.
Hartley said: "We had good chances early in that game but never took them and had to settle for a point but I have been reminding everyone that we were not beaten and have a lot to be confident about.
"I am really looking forward to the game and I am sure that we will enjoy playing on the artificial surface they have there."
Gordon saves Alloa
High flying Alloa needed a late Ben Gordon equaliser to salvage a 1-1 draw at lowly Montrose.
Gordon rose highest to nod home an inswinging corner from Ryan McCord to cancel out Scott Johnston`s early header.
The strugglers had taken a shock lead in the 15th minute when Terry Masson`s cross was nodded home by striker Johnston.
Alloa almost drew level in the 57th minute when a curling effort from McCord just evaded Sandy Wood`s left-hand post, before Gordon`s towering header levelled matters with just 12 minutes remaining.
The home side almost nicked all three points at the death but Martin Boyle`s injury-time effort was tipped round the post by Scott Bain.
Alloa will feel they missed an opportunity as all three points would have taken them to the top of the Scottish Third Division.
