Nicoll worry for Clyde

Clyde will assess the fitness of Kevin Nicoll ahead of the visit of Peterhead.

The on-loan midfielder has suffered a recurrence of a hamstring problem but will be given every chance to prove his fitness.

But the Bully Wee are definitely without David Marsh (groin), Michael Oliver (ankle) and Gavin Brown (hamstring) through injury as they look for a first win in eight games.

Boss Jim Duffy said: "Against Queen's Park in midweek we were playing well and then lost a goal. Within a minute our player's shot hit the underside of their bar and crashed down on the line.

"Another couple of inches backwards we would have got level. We have had situations like that all season and hopefully we can get a break against a decent Peterhead side."

Peterhead will hand a fitness test to Bryan Gilfillan ahead of the trip.

The defender picked up a calf injury during training in midweek but is hoping to be passed fit to face his former side.

Jim McInally's side will be without Scott Ross (ankle), Martin Bavidge (hamstring), Callum MacDonald and Davie Ross (both knee) as they look to consolidate their place in the play-offs.

McInally said: "I don't see Clyde as a bottom of the table side. I see Clyde as a hard working side that are not that far away from putting a string of good results together.

"We cannot just turn up and expect to win and we will have to fight for the three points that we need to keep pushing towards securing a play-off place."
