Annan will hand fitness tests to a trio of players ahead of the visit of Queen's Park.
Jim Chapman will check on Daniel Orsi, David Murray and Steven Sloan, who are all struggling with knocks, but Graeme Ramage is definitely out after undergoing knee surgery.
Chapman wants to see his side bounce back from last weekend's home defeat against Clyde.
He said: ``Queen's Park have been great this season and they play the game in a really good way but we have to combat that.
``Against Clyde we lost because they were hungrier than us and that might have been due to a disappointing reaction after winning against Rangers the week before.
``We have to be the team that wants the three points the most.''
Tony Quinn is back in contention for Queen's Park.
The Spiders stalwart has recovered from a hip injury that has kept him sidelined for seven weeks and is pushing for inclusion.
But fellow midfielder Allan Urquhart remains sidelined with his knee problem..
Spiders coach Gardner Speirs has warned his players that they are by no means assured of a play-off place.
He said: ``There is plenty of work to be done in our remaining eight games in terms of getting into the play-offs. A win at Annan would be another great step towards them but we have to be wary.
``They showed their potential at Ibrox a couple of weeks ago when they won against Rangers so that is what I am preparing our players to match up against.''
