Montrose manager Stewart Petrie is looking for his side to show the spirit that helped them come back from a goal down at Stenhousemuir when they face Stirling Albion in the Irn-Bru Cup at Forthbank.
Petrie said: “We lost a goal with 20 minutes to go and could have folded but the players stuck at things and got an equaliser.
“We can play better and we will need to at Stirling as they have started the season really well.
“However, if we go there and battle then we have a chance.”
Michael Bolochoweckyj, Danny Cavanagh, Ryan Ferguson, Terry Masson and Gary Fraser remain out injured for the Gable Endies.
