Montrose aim to put Rangers party on hold
Montrose will have on-loan Dundee goalkeeper John Gibson back between the posts to face champions-elect Rangers at Links Park after he served a one-match suspension last weekend in the win at East Stirling.
Jamie Winter is also free from suspension while Alan Campbell and Ricky McIntosh return from injury, however Paul Lunan is suspended and Jonathan Crawford drops out with a knee problem.
Manager Stuart Garden said: "We have given Rangers three good games so far this season and there is no reason why we will not give them another test in this meeting.
"They might need the points to close in on the title but we need the points for a play-off place so we will be going out with the intention of earning them."
Victory for Rangers over their third-placed hosts would seal the runaway leaders' inevitable Third Division title triumph providing second-placed Queen's Park drop points at home to Elgin. A point would also be enough were the Spiders to lose at Hampden.
Rangers are boosted by the return of David Templeton and Ian Black for the clash.
Templeton has recovered from an Achilles problem while Black is now free from suspension ahead of the trip to Links Park, although Andy Little joins the casualty list.
Reserve goalkeeper Scott Gallacher has a wrist problem, meaning Blair Currie will be on the bench, while Francisco Sandaza is still suspended by the club.
