Forfar defender Michael Bolochoweckyj misses out through suspension against play-off chasers Stenhousemuir.
The Loons will also be without Odmar Faero due to an ankle injury, while Ross Campbell is struggling with illness.
Manager Dick Campbell said: ``Stenhousemuir have a team full of good experienced players, but we are three points ahead just now with a game in hand and sitting in a play-off place.
``If we can get six points ahead with a game in hand by winning this game I would be delighted.
``I have named my team and substitutes already to ensure everyone is really focused and ready to get us the win.''
Stenhousemuir will include new loan signing Nicky Devlin in their squad, while Ross McMillan and David Rowson return from injury.
Sean Dickson is also available to manager Martyn Corrigan after a knock, but Craig Anderson is still out through illness and Kevin McKinlay (calf) and Bryan Hodge (hamstring) are also missing.
Corrigan said: ``This is a big game for us and it will be a tough game as Forfar are a good side, especially at home.
``We're on a good run just now and the belief in our squad is that we can go higher in the table, so we're looking forward to it.
``We'll need to have our game heads on as three points makes the play-offs more achievable.''
