Airdrie welcome back captain Paul Lovering from suspension as they welcome Brechin in the Scottish Second Division.
Lovering has completed a two-game ban and can boost the Diamonds as they look to continue their five-match winning run.
Midfielder Sean Lynch is unavailable after being sent off in last week's 3-0 win at Stenhousemuir, with manager Jimmy Boyle reporting that he has no injury worries to contend with.
He said: "We have the ownership of a play-off place just now and the best way to keep hold of it is to keep winning games.
"We have not beaten Brechin this season and this would be a terrific game to do it in.
"Not only would we pick up another three points we make it harder for one of the teams chasing to catch us."
Brechin will miss defender Mick Dunlop through suspension.
Glebe Park boss Jim Weir has ruled out David McClune and Derek Carcary, with top goalscorer Paul McManus (knee) rated as doubtful.
Weir said: "If Paul does not make it we are down to the bare bones squad-wise, but whoever plays will know that a win is a must.
"We defeated Airdrie at their place back in December but I recognise that they are probably the most improved side in this division since then.
"We have to win this game and the next three to have any chance of extending our season into the play-offs."
