Due back to bolster Arbroath

Arbroath boss Dick Campbell is boosted by the return of two players for the home game against Berwick.

Josh Skelly and Kane Hester are fit again and come back into the reckoning but Sergio Alvarez looks set to miss out after picking up an injury in training.

Ahead of the game Campbell said: "I felt for the players last weekend when they lost to Annan as the 4-1 score-line was harsh. We started the game really well and should have been a couple of goals ahead but we never took our chances.

"Whilst I have some sympathy for the players they also know that I expect a far more clinical approach against Berwick especially as they are so strong defensively just now.

Sandy Cunningham has a dislocated a shoulder and will miss out for Berwick.

Borderers boss John Coughlin wishes that the season was not coming to a close for his in-form team.

He said: "We have only lost one game in the last nine and have only conceded two goals during that run. It looks like we have found a very strong formula and I wish we had months to go as opposed to weeks.

"The players have worked really hard to turn our season around and we will look to keep that going against Arbroath players who will want to show their manager Dick Campbell that they should be there next season."
