Montrose entertain basement side Queen's Park with only on-loan Dundee United defender Luke Johnston unavailable.
Johnston is out with a hip problem but Gable Endies manager Stuart Garden does welcome Terry Masson back from suspension.
"It was disappointing to lose at Annan last weekend as there was nothing between the sides," said Garden.
"My one complaint about the performance was that we never tested their goalkeeper enough and when that happens you are always leaving yourself open to losing a goal.
"I am looking for better against Queen's Park. However, I know that Gus McPherson has made them a very difficult side to penetrate since he went there."
Spiders boss McPherson has Jamie Brough and David Anderson available again after illness but Shaun Rooney has been ruled out again with a groin injury.
"I am really pleased with how the players are competing. We are also creating chances which is very pleasing but we need to go that extra bit forward and convert the chances into goals," said McPherson.
"If we can do that at Montrose and grab the first goal, we will have a very good chance of getting a win."
