Tweed poised for playing return
Montrose player/manager Steven Tweed could include himself in the squad as his side face Stranraer for the second week running.
Tweed, who has returned to training after a spell out with injury, has a number of injury concerns with goalkeeper Sandy Wood, defenders Fraser Milligan and Sean Fleming all ruled out and midfield duo Hugh Davidson and Terry Masson still sidelined.
Tweed said: "We've done well recently with two wins and I want to keep that going and the best way to do that is by winning again.
"A win would put us to within two points of the top four and it certainly will have been a great idea to bring this game forward if that happens."
Stranraer's Romauld Bouadji has been ruled out of the clash through injury.
Fellow defender Paul Murphy and midfielder Sean Winter are both rated doubtful, but Steven Noble returns to contention after more than a month out with an ankle injury as Stranraer travel to Links Park in search of revenge for last week's defeat to the same side.
Blues boss Keith Knox saw how much Montrose have improved close up last weekend and is determined his side will not be beaten for a second time.
Knox said: "Steven Tweed has done a good job at Montrose after the disappointments of last season.
"They have undoubtedly improved, but we have the opportunity to put that right quickly and intend to take it."
Montrose stir to earn a point
Montrose fought back from 3-0 down to earn a 3-3 draw and deny Stranraer the chance to go top of Division Three.
Stranraer, beaten 2-1 at home by Montrose last week, went ahead in the eighth minute when Sean Winter struck his fourth goal of the season, firing past Scott Bennett in the Montrose goal from 12 yards.
With their tails up, Stranraer doubled their tally in the 33rd minute as Craig Malcolm beat Bennett from 20 yards for his sixth of the campaign.
The impressive Armand One was involved again as Stranraer stretched their lead four minutes after the restart as he supplied the cross which Malcolm buried from six yards.
But three minutes later Paul Tosh smashed a 25-yard shot past David Mitchell to give Montrose hope and then Ross McCord hit a left-footed drive from 25 yards to cut the deficit to one.
The comeback was complete 11 minutes later when Steven McNalley headed home Tosh's cross from the left wing.
