Youngster Callum Crane added to Berwick squad

Bottom club Berwick include on-loan Hibs youngster Callum Crane for the first time when Elgin visit Shielfield.

Kieran Ainslie is the only injury doubt as the Borderers look to secure their first win since manager John Coughlin returned to the club last month.

Coughlin said: "We have not played for three weeks but we have worked really hard in training and practice games on a system I would like us to play going forward.

"Elgin are a side with a lot of attacking threat and we have to ensure that we blunt that threat to give us a chance of winning."

Elgin are without on-loan St Johnstone defender Liam Gordon (knee) and Jamie Duff (groin) with manager Jim Weir delaying naming his side until Matthew Cooper undergoes a fitness test.

Weir said: "Our home form is the best in Scotland but our away form must be amongst the worst.

"Hopefully this will be the game it changes in as we have been really struggling to get anything on the road.

"Last weekend at Stirling Albion we scored a good goal but we then lost three bad ones in the second half and that needs to stop. Hopefully it will at Berwick."
