Berwick quartet ruled out ahead of Clyde showdown

Berwick boss John Coughlin will be without Barry Hogg (back injury), Lee Hamilton (groin), Sean Mackie (ankle) and Ben Stirling (thigh) against visitors Clyde.

Coughlin's options are reduced further after Allan Walker left the club this week, and he said: "We are short on numbers so I have brought back some of our development squad who were out on loan.

"They will get the chance to grab a regular place by showing up well against one of the most experienced squads in the league.

"We have to take absences on the chin and look to be as solid as we have been in our last couple of games."

Second-placed Clyde have Martin McNiff available again after suspension, but knee injuries continue to rule out Jon-Paul McGovern, Jordan Lowdon and Dylan Easton.

The Bully Wee lost to leaders Forfar last weekend, but manager Barry Ferguson saw enough to be positive.

"I was disappointed at losing that game for the players as they put so much into it," he said. "All that was missing was a goal but it never came.

"Hopefully we can put that right at Berwick. The players were down last weekend but a win in this game will have everyone flying again."
