Berwick without suspended duo for basement clash

Jonny Fairbairn and Steve Notman are suspended for Berwick when East Stirling visit in a bottom-of-the-table clash.

Ewan McNeil is a doubt and Brian Martin is unavailable due to work commitments.

Manager John Coughlin said: "We have the chance to open up a gap on East Stirling and we have to take it.

"Losing would put us at the foot of the table and we do not want to be there ahead of a hectic schedule throughout the rest of the season."

The Shire are again without the injured Ross Gilmour (foot) and Billy Vidler (knee) with head coach Craig Tully determined his side stand strong despite three straight defeats.

Tully said: "We played well against Arbroath last weekend for a long spell and hit the post at 1-0 down. Their second goal knocked the stuffing out of the team and some heads went down.

"We are short of confidence at the moment and the best way to win that back is to start getting wins again.

"There is a prize available in this game as we would move off bottom spot if we win and that is a great motivation."
