Arbroath have added former AFC Wimbledon midfielder David Banjo to the squad which will face Stirling at Gayfield in the Scottish Communities League Cup after he received international clearance.
Captain Stuart Malcolm remains out with a groin injury as manager Paul Sheerin, who has yet to win a tie in the competition, looks to take the good from his side's 7-5 win over Elgin last week and eliminate the bad.
Sheerin said: "It was great to score so many goals and have three strikers get off the mark for the season but our concentration at the back needs to be better.
"Stirling always gave us tough games in the Second Division but having won a Ramsdens tie for the first time in three seasons I now want the double."
Kieran McAnespie, Stirling's summer signing from Arbroath, has been passed fit to make his debut.
Youngster Ross McGeachie is also available after a knock but goalkeeper Sam Filler and player-coach Shaun Fagan are absent due to suspension and David McClune is still not fully over his ankle knock.
Manager Greig McDonald said: "We had close contests against Arbroath in the Second Division last season and they were also all good games of football. I am sure this will be the same.
"They scored seven goals last weekend at Elgin which I am sure will have delighted their manager Paul Sheerin but I am sure he is looking for his defence to tighten up quite a bit after losing five."
