East Fife add duo to squad for Berwick clash

East Fife welcome Liam Kelly and Jordan Austin to their squad as they host Berwick in Ladbrokes League Two on Saturday.

Goalkeeper Liam Kelly has agreed a loan deal from Rangers, while striker Austin steps up from amateur side Leven United.

Graeme MacGregor has returned from his loan spell at Linlithgow Rose but Kieran MacDonald was released earlier this week.

Player-manager Gary Naysmith said: "Berwick were on a good run until their game was called off last weekend so this will be tough. If we can come out on top then we will really have given our play-off chances a boost but to do so we need to play better than we did last week against Elgin.

Berwick's new recruit from East Fife, Allan Walker, is in line for his debut against his former club. Hibernian youngster Jordan McGregor is also for his bow after agreeing a temporary move from Easter Road.

The Borderers, two places and two points off the bottom, are missing the suspended Finn Graham, Jonny Fairbairn and Michael McKenna.

Manager John Coughlin said: "After winning at East Stirling and Queen's Park it was disappointing to have our momentum slowed down when our home game against Annan was postponed.

"This gives us a chance to get things moving again and with the bottom two (Montrose and East Stirling) playing each other, we have a chance to climb further away from the foot of the table."
