Title hopefuls East Fife at full strength against Annan

Title-chasing East Fife have everyone fit against Annan at Bayview as they try to close the two points gap to Elgin.

Player/ manager Gary Naysmith has told his players they will need to blunt the Galabank side's attacking threat if they are to succeed.

He said: "Annan have had inconsistent results recently but one thing that is consistent about them is that they score goals. They are the joint highest scorers in the league and we need to keep them quiet.

"We played well to win at the home of Elgin City last Saturday and another performance of that level will be required to get the three points."

Annan have added St Mirren youngster Barry Cuddihy on loan and also have Steven Swinglehurst and Steven Black available after injury.

Missing are the injured Jack Breslin (foot) and Bryan Gilfillan (calf) with manager Jim Chapman looking for his men to turn positive play into points.

Chapman said: "Our recent performances have deserved more points but we have not seen games out well enough. If however we continue to play as positively as we have been then I am sure it will turn."
