Annan face injury crisis

Annan's outside hopes of securing a play-off spot have been dealt a blow by the absence of several first-teamers.

Jack Breslin (foot), Iain Chisholm, Matty Flynn, Kieran Brannan, Kenny Mackay (all knee) and Stuart McColm (ankle) are all doubtful for the visit of Montrose.

Steven Logan, Steven Swinglehurst and Ryan McStay are also struggling with knocks, and manager Jim Chapman said: "Injuries have been the story of our season and the boys have done well to get into the position we are in.

"Whether we can go any further will depend on getting a couple of early goals and putting pressure on East Fife at the other side of the country."

Relegated Montrose could welcome back veteran defender Marvin Andrews after injury.

Leighton McIntosh could also return, however Alan Campbell (knee), Stephen Day (ankle), Paul Harkins (hamstring) and Bryan Deasley (foot) all remain out.

The Gable Endies' three game unbeaten run came to an end last weekend when they lost 1-0 to Clyde and manager Paul Hegarty said: "Our performance levels dropped last weekend and I am looking for that to be fixed for the game at Annan.

"We have two massive play-off games coming up and want to be in good form for them."
