Warriors will have to battle on without three key men

Colin McMenamin, Allan Smith and Ciaran Summers will all be absent for Stenhousemuir when Brechin visit Ochilview Park.

McMenamin misses out through suspension while Smith and Summers are sidelined with hip and hamstring injuries respectively.

However, some good news for Warriors boss Brown Ferguson could be the return of Jon McShane after a knee problem.

Ferguson is looking for his side to put in a full-game performance, he said: "We lost 2-0 last weekend to Albion Rovers as a result of our poor first half. We never competed at all, were deservedly behind at the break and we could not recover.

"We need to have a high performance level throughout the game as Brechin are a side with confidence behind them now."

Bottom club Brechin are at full strength.

Manager Darren Dods is chasing a third win in a row but he is still to decide if he will continue playing or opt for a touchline role only.

He said: "We are a side that has benefited greatly from winning a couple of games and it may be a good time for me to step back a bit. When we got ahead against Cowdenbeath last Saturday confidence flowed and we started creating lots of chances.

"We need to use that to our advantage at Stenhousemuir as if we win we could find ourselves off the bottom of the table."
