Stirling Albion may be forced to pitch youth-team goalkeeper Jamie Cleland into action for their must-win game against Dumbarton due to injury to Sam Filler.
Filler sustained a knock in training on Thursday night so Cleland is expected to step in for a game Albion must win to keep alive their hopes of survival as second-choice goalkeeper Callum Reidford is sidelined with a groin injury.
Manager Greig McDonald said: "Callum was already struggling to be back for this one and now we could be without Sam as well. I'm sure that however goes in will do well."
Defender Gary Thom is also doubtful due to illness and McDonald added: "The task in this game is a simple one and that is to get a win.
"I want us to be heading to Albion Rovers next weekend with something to play for."
Dumbarton will be without injured pair Ryan Finnie and Mark Lamont again as they chase the win needed to seal a play-off place.
Manager Alan Adamson will otherwise choose from an unchanged squad for his side's must-win encounter.
Adamson said: "If Arbroath defeat Stenhousemuir then we are there, but I would much rather that we secure a play-off place under our own steam.
"It will not be an easy task as Stirling still have a chance of staying up and will be battling for something.
"Our players battled to come from behind and defeat Airdrie last weekend and will need to show those same qualities to get the three points in this game."
