Stenhousemuir are able to call on makeshift centre-half Brown Ferguson against Berwick Rangers as his suspension for being sent off in last weekend's 7-2 loss to Brechin City will be served in the league.
The Warriors however continue to be without the injured defensive pair of Scott Buist and Ross McMillan, however winger Darren Smith is available after illness.
Ochilview manager Martyn Corrigan said: ``We have put last weekend's game behind us and moved on as Berwick will be a tough enough tie without worrying a game that has gone now. We have had them watched and they are a decent side.
``We raised our game to beat Kilmarnock earlier in the season and we need to guard against Berwick doing that to us.''
Berwick are again with Dean Droudge, who has a knee injury, and Marc Lancaster who is struggling with a back injury.
Damian Gielty is a doubt with a knee problem with Shielfield boss Ian Little paying little attention to his opponent's heavy defeat last week.
He said: ``Their result up at Brechin does not fool me as Stenhousemuir have been a strong side all season and that was a one-off. You do not become a bad team overnight so this will be a really tough game for us.
``They have also performed well in the Scottish Communities League Cup where they defeated Kilmarnock and they will be keen to get the chance to do something like that again by getting into the next round at our expense.''
