David Marsh banned as Clyde host East Fife

David Marsh sits out through suspension as Clyde look to close the gap on Ladbrokes League Two leaders East Fife when they host Annan on Tuesday.

Brian McQueen and Scott Ferguson (both knee) are also missing for third-placed Clyde, who can move to within a point of East Fife with a fourth successive league win.

Manager Barry Ferguson, who has agreed a new contract until 2019, said: "We won without being at our best (on Saturday at East Stirling) but we can accept that as winning is what counts at this stage of the season.

"The players showed a terrific desire to win and we will need those qualities again as Annan have returned to form."

Annan have won their last two after previously managing just one victory in seven games in all competitions.

Manager Jim Chapman will not choose his team to face Clyde until close to kick off as Steven Black, Steven Swinglehurst, Kevin Nicoll and Jordan Morton are still feeling the effects of an illness bug that saw them miss the 1-0 win over Berwick on Saturday.

On-loan Celtic youngster Jack Breslin drops out as he is away with Scotland Under-19s and Bryan Gilfillan misses out due to a calf problem.

Chapman said: "It is not the ideal preparation for a game that would see us enter the top four if we win. We battled with low numbers to win on Saturday and we will battle with low numbers again."
