Smith blow for leaders
Peterhead are missing the suspended Ross Smith as they host Montrose looking to close in on promotion.
The Blue Toon need eight points from five games to mathematically seal a first Scottish League title.
Graeme Sharp will be given until the last minute to prove his fitness having suffered a back injury but David Cox (broken foot) is not quite ready for a return.
Manager Jim McInally said: "I think that Montrose will have a go at us as they need the three points to help their play-off chances. I welcome that as a lot of teams come here and sit in but I reckon this will be an open contest."
Montrose sit six points away from a play-off place after a run of one win in four.
They head to tackle the leaders without Craig Bell, who has tonsillitis, while on-loan Inverness Callum Ferguson is once again missing with a knee injury.
Manager Stuart Garden said: "It will be difficult to get back into the play-off places however we will keep looking to get there. Winning at Peterhead is a hard task however we can be confident as there has been very little between the sides this season.
"We created chances against Elgin last weekend and paid a heavy price for not taking them. It will be the same if we are not ruthless at Peterhead."
