Keeper quandary for Clyde

Clyde have goalkeepers Jamie Barclay and Nik Rajovic available after injury to face visitors East Stirling.

Barclay is expected to get the nod from manager Jim Duffy to replace on-loan Dundee United stopper Joe McGovern.

Ryan MacBeth is missing through illness and an ankle injury keeps Kevin Watt out.

Duffy is looking for his side to build on last Saturday's 1-0 success at Annan.

He said: "That was a very determined display where the players stuck to their tasks individually and collectively. It was great to get a clean sheet after a few games of defensive mistakes so it is a case of same again, although East Stirling will make it difficult."

East Stirling were disappointed this week when Rangers recalled striker Callum Gallagher at the end of his loan spell as the Shire were keen to extend it until the end of the season.

John Coughlin's side will also be without captain Kevin Turner who has an ankle injury, while Nathan Shepherd is not yet able to return after nearly a year out with a knee problem due to a lack of match practice.

"Callum played well and grabbed a last-gasp goal to equalise against Albion Rovers last weekend," said Coughlin. "Clyde's confidence will be high after winning last week but our away form has been good so we have nothing to fear."
