Brydon blow for Berwick

Dougie Brydon will miss in-form Berwick's clash with Peterhead due to a groin problem.

Long-term absentees Dene Droudge (knee) and Marc Lancaster (back) remain sidelined, with strikers Fraser McLaren and Scott Dalziel facing fitness tests before manager Ian Little can confirm his line-up.

Little, who will include youngsters Kenny O'Brien and Johnny Fairbairn, said: "I will be delighted if we keep doing what we have been doing.

"Confidence is high amongst the players and there is a growing belief amongst them that we can get into the play-offs at the end of the season.

"That belief will be tested as Peterhead are a very experienced side."

Peterhead will be without long-term absentees Callum Macdonald and Davie Ross (both knee) when they travel over the border looking to close the gap on third-placed Rangers.

The Blue Toon won 6-0 on their travels last weekend at Montrose and manager Jim McInally is looking for the same again.

He said: "We got ahead early in that game and that was a terrific boost as was the ruthless way we went about things in the second half.

"The players really enjoyed that game and kick-off in this one can't come quick enough.

"This is a big game and we need to get on top of Berwick quickly. They have good players who will dominate things if we let them."
