Fifers wait on Campbell fitness

Stevie Campbell is East Fife's only injury concern ahead of the visit of Clyde.

Campbell suffered a knock in training on Thursday and Fifers player/manager Gary Naysmith will make a late check on him before kick-off on Saturday.

Naysmith is looking for his men to move level on points with a side he believes will challenge for the title all season.

He said: "We have let draws slip into defeats and that has cost us points. We are three points behind Clyde and I want to close that gap as if you can finish above them they you will have had a great season.

"We have done our homework and know they pose danger from set-pieces but hopefully we can handle that."

Clyde, second in the table and level on points with leaders Elgin, will again be without Scott Durie as he works his way back to fitness following ankle surgery.

Michael Bolochoweckyj is a slight doubt due to a calf problem with Mark McLaughlin ready to step in if required.

Boss Barry Ferguson is hoping to guide his side to a fourth win in a row, telling reporters: "The boys have worked hard to come through the sticky patch we had earlier in the season. We have had a good run but there is more to come from us performance-wise.

"East Fife are a decent side but we have the players in our squad that can go there and win the game."
