Easton makes Berwick's day

Berwick hope to have Dylan Easton available for the visit of Stirling after the ankle injury he sustained against Rangers recently eased.

Steven Notman is available for the Borderers after suspension, but Marc Lancaster (back) and Dene Droudge (knee) continue to be sidelined.

Borderers boss Ian Little is looking for an improvement from his side, and said: "We got a point at Annan on Saturday but it was not a performance I enjoyed.

"We can pass the ball better than we did down there and we will need to do that to get the better of a Stirling Albion side that are doing really well just now.

"I want us to win this game and show that we are serious about getting involved in the play-off chase."

Stirling, who are emerging as play-off contenders after a four-month stay at the foot of the table, will include Ross Forsyth after surgery to fix his broken nose was cancelled.

Goalkeeper David Crawford misses out with a thigh injury, as does Ross McGeachie (foot).

Graham Weir is absent due to a hamstring injury and Brian Allison is struggling with a shoulder problem.

Manager Greig McDonald said: "We have started turning our season around recently and a win at Berwick would keep that transformation going. We have moved off the bottom and want to keep heading up the way.

"It would also be good to get a win as our 4-1 defeat last September was probably our worst display of the season."
