Striker Cunningham out against parent club

Berwick's on-loan Sandy Cunningham cannot play against parent club Stirling Albion.

Allan Walker is also out with a back injury with boss John Coughlin eager to extend their unbeaten run to five games.

He said: "We have eight points from the last four games and that has pulled us up a place in the table. Defensively we have been strong during this period where we have managed to keep three clean sheets in a row.

"We will need that to carry on being a strength as Stirling have some of the most potent strikers in the league."

Stirling Albion could be without six players with hamstring injuries ruling out Scott Buist, Kevin McKinlay as well as Lewis McLear with Ross Smith (knee), Aurelien Mazel (thigh) and Craig Comrie (illness).

The Forthbank side are still reeling from losing to an injury-time penalty against leaders Elgin in midweek.

Assistant manager Martyn Corrigan said: "We had restricted Elgin to very few chances so give away a soft penalty to lose the game was sore. We have to take our medicine and get on with things as there are only eight games to go.

"Berwick have strengthened both organisationally and physicality recently so they will be very tough opponents."
