Suspended Omar misses out for Annan as Edinburgh chase their first win

Annan will be without the suspended Rabin Omar for their home game against Edinburgh City.

Manager Jim Chapman has no new injury concerns as his side bid to shrug off the disappointment of shipping an injury-time goal to Arbroath last weekend.

The goal cost the Galabank side a win and Chapman said: "It was a cruel way to be denied three points, but we have to concentrate on how positively we played, especially in the second half.

"We have had Edinburgh City watched and they are a good side with good players. They will be trying harder every week to get their first win and we have to ensure that does not come against us."

Edinburgh City have added former Manchester City defender Marc Laird to their squad and he looks set to make his debut at Galabank.

On-loan Hibs defender Ryan Porteous is an injury doubt and Nico Gibson is sgtill out as City chase their first win of the season.

Manager Gary Jardine said: "I was disappointed that we lost to Montrose last weekend as we had shown a lot of progression the previous week when we drew at Stirling.

"However our lack of experience at this level worked against us so it was a difficult afternoon. Winning at Annan will be tough, but we have to go there and be strong."
