Currie fit for Berwick

Berwick have midfielder Lee Currie available to face visitors East Fife as play-off football returns to Shielfield for the first time in seven seasons.

Missing for the Borderers will be long-term absentees Marc Lancaster, who has a back injury, and Dene Droudge, who has a knee problem, with manager Ian Little likely to make changes from the side that lost 1-0 to Rangers on Saturday.

Little said: "I was a bit disappointed that we did not attack Rangers until late on and that is something that we will change.

"Darren Lavery and Dylan Easton did well when they came on and at least one of them will start.

"We have done well to get to the play-offs but we have to ensure that they do not just pass us by."

East Fife have a fit and suspension-free squad as they look to get their campaign to retain their Second Division status off to a flying start.

New Bayview boss Bill Brown is encouraging his side to come up with the goods despite a disappointing run of only win in 17 games.

He said: "Berwick will be on a high after a strong end to the season but we have improved with a draw at Queen of the South and good performance in the defeat against Brechin where the 3-0 scoreline flattered them.

"This game will be decided by how well we play. If we play like we can and defend well, then we will win."
