League Two strugglers move on from club stalwarts
Montrose begin life after Scott Johnston as they host East Stirling in a fight to stay off the bottom of Ladbrokes League Two.
The stalwart utility man has left the club after taking up a new job in London, having commuted the long distance from his new home until the transfer window opened.
Gary Fraser misses out due to a ban, with the injured Andrew Steeves (knee), Paul Watson (groin) and Ross McCord (knee) still absent.
Manager Paul Hegarty said: "We have not won in eight games and that is disappointing. Injuries have hurt us but there are also a number of games where we have not played as well as we could. Hopefully we can put that right."
The Shire also bid farewell to a well-respected player after winger Nathan Shepherd moved to Australia.
Billy Vidler is missing due to a knee injury as Craig Tully's side look to push up the table.
Tully said: "If we can win, we move off bottom spot with games in hand and that is a prize worth securing. The players did really well against Stirling last weekend and all I can ask them to do is to repeat that performance.
"We brought in Thomas Orr from Morton and Michael McMullin from Partick Thistle ahead of that game and they made a big difference. Hopefully they will again."
