Third-placed Brechin entertain the side immediately above them Alloa at Glebe Park and manager Ray McKinnon has held off from naming his side until a late check on Craig Molloy's knee injury.
Alan Trouten and Aaron Murdoch continue to be absent through injury as well, with McKinnon looking for his men to build on a fine 4-1 win at Forfar on Wednesday.
He said: ``We were good at Station Park especially at creating chances and I could not ask to go into such a tough game with a better performance behind us.
``We have been unbeaten at home since I came in and we want to keep that going.
``This should be a cracking game like the 2-2 draw at their place was.''
Alloa have Graeme Holmes back in their squad after he completed a two-game suspension.
Full-back Michael Doyle, who had groin surgery this week, will be missing for the Wasps, with captain Darren Young subject to a fitness test after being out recently due to hamstring trouble.
Recreation Park manager Paul Hartley said: ``The games are coming thick and fast but our players have responded well despite being low in numbers.
``We have won eight of our last 11 games and Brechin have been on a great run as well so it should be a fascinating contest.
``If we defend like we did against Stenhousemuir on Wednesday we will give ourselves a fantastic platform to go on and win the game.''
