Annan striker Kenny Mackay is a major doubt for his side's William Hill Scottish Cup replay against Stenhousemuir as he is still suffering from the illness that saw him miss Saturday's 2-0 defeat from Albion.
A knee injury keeps Iain Chisholm out with Steven Logan still out with a broken foot as the Galabank men look to secure a visit from Fraserburgh.
Manager Jim Chapman said: "We are going into this game after a great performance against Albion Rovers but we handed away the three points.
"We played really well but then made a silly mistake at the back. We cannot afford to do that again against Stenhousemuir or we are out."
Stenhousemuir winger Darren Smith will miss the game after sustaining a knee injury when his side lost a last-gasp goal to go down 3-2 at Dunfermline at the weekend.
Ankle injuries have already denied manager Martyn Corrigan the services of Sandy Hodge and Sean Higgins with the Ochilview boss looking to lift his players after Saturday's defeat.
Corrigan said: "It is the second time that we have lost to Dunfermline right on the final whistle. The first time was sore and this time felt worse.
"We have to ensure there is no hangover as Annan are a good side who will take advantage if we feel sorry for ourselves."
