Montrose will be without the suspended Stephen McNally for the visit of Elgin as they look to win two successive games for the first time this season.
Alan Campbell is expected to be available following a groin injury, however Paul Watson remains out due to a knee problem.
Links Park boss Stuart Garden said: "Elgin gave us a battering up at their place a couple of weeks ago when they won 6-1 so I know they are a good side.
"However, we have shown at times that we are more than decent and all that is missing from us is doing that on a consistent basis.
"Following up our win over Stirling with another success would be a great way of showing that we can do things consistently.''
Elgin have ruled out captain David Niven and experienced striker Dennis Wyness due to knee injuries.
There could be further absentees as Mark Nicolson and Ross O'Donoghue struggle with knocks while Paul Miller has missed training through illness.
With Rangers at Clyde on Sunday, Elgin go into the game knowing they can top the Third Division table for 24 hours at least should they claim all three points,
Black and Whites' boss Ross Jack said: "If we want to keep challenging at the top of the table then we have to win games like this one.
"What happened a couple of weeks ago has to be put to the back of our minds as no two games are ever the same. Montrose will be hurt from the last game but we are going there looking for another win."
