Chris Mitchell back after a ban for Clyde

Clyde have Chris Mitchell available after a ban for the visit of East Fife, with Sean Higgins also added to manager Barry Ferguson's squad after a groin injury.

Brian McQueen is the only absentee with the defender out with a long-term knee injury.

Ferguson said: "We have had a three-week break which is not ideal, especially as we wanted to be playing quickly again after winning 5-0 at Berwick. With only Brian unavailable we have competition for places all over the pitch and that is terrific.

"East Fife have a strong squad who will be disappointed with a couple of recent results, so this will be a test."

East Fife have on-loan Hibs striker Jamie Insall back in their ranks after a two-match ban, with Pat Slattery and Ross Brown also available after injury to give player-manager Gary Naysmith a full squad to choose from.

Naysmith said: "We know that we were poor in midweek against Queen's Park and we will be looking to put that right.

"Clyde are the form team in this division and they will see this game as an opportunity to open up a decent gap on us and we have to try and stop that happening.

"We have the players capable of playing well there and getting a win."
