Borderers look up without Brydon

Berwick will be without defender Dougie Brydon again as they bid to climb the Scottish League Two table with a home win against Montrose.

Brydon is still struggling with a pelvic problem, while goalkeeping coach Gary O'Connor will continue on the bench as Billy Bald has undergone surgery on a leg injury.

The fixture was originally scheduled for last week, but was called off shortly before kick-off due a floodlight failure at Shielfield.

Berwick boss Ian Little said: "Our second-bottom position is not a fair reflection of how well we are playing.

"We are carrying no good fortune at all, but if we get a fair break against Montrose we can win."

Montrose can climb up to second place with a win and manager Stuart Garden has delayed naming his team until Ricky McIntosh undergoes a fitness test on a hamstring problem.

Alan Campbell remains sidelined with an ankle injury and Lloyd Young is missing through work commitments.

Garden said: "We have a huge incentive to win this game as would climb three places.

"We would be second, just a point behind the leaders and that is good going.

"But it won't be easy as Berwick will be out to make up for what must have been a sore defeat at Annan on Saturday."
