The biggest game in League Two so far this season takes place at Gayfield tonight when third placed Arbroath host leaders Albion Rovers.
If Allan Moore’s Red Lichties win they will move to within two points of the Cliftonhill men, and a solitary point behind second placed Queen’s Park, with the top two meeting at Hampden on Saturday.
Moore’s side go into the clash having ended their miserable start to 2015 by securing their first win in 11 games at the weekend.
The Arbroath boss said: “It is a big week for us and we got it off to a good start by defeating Clyde 3-1. We looked like a confident side going forward again and Bobby Linn scoring a hat-trick was a boost to everyone.
“We know that we will be right back among things if we can win this game.”
Though the Gayfield boss is relieved that his side is winning again he remains disappointed that they didn’t take advantage of Albion’s disappointing February when they lost four games in a row themselves.
Moore added: “When they were losing games last month we simply could not pick up a win. It was frustrating however as well as Wednesday night’s game we have to play them once more and also have another game against Queen’s Park to come.
“Winning the title is very much still in our own hands and we would have a firmer grip on it if we make it two wins in a row at home. We started the season with a great run of wins and there is no reason why we cannot go on a run like that to end the season.”
Liam Gordon and Adam Hunter are both still injured.
