Duo back for Coughlin

Bottom-of-the-table East Stirling welcome back captain Kevin Turner and Paul Quinn when they host Annan.

But injuries rule out six Shire players with knee problems affecting Nathan Shepherd and Rhys Devlin, and Michael Herd (groin), Scott Maxwell (heel), Philipp Zufle (ankle) and Jamie Glasgow (back) also missing.

Manager John Coughlin said: "Having our skipper back gives us a boost.

"Annan had a great result on Wednesday so will come here with a bit of confidence. We have to go out and work really hard for the win.

"We do not want the season to end on a low so hopefully we can get things moving again by winning this game."

Annan will look to build on their home success over Queen's Park, and it looks like it will be a case of same again on the personnel front for manager Jim Chapman.

Graeme Ramage remains out after knee surgery with David Murray (calf) and Steve Swinglehurst (groin) not expected to be included despite their fitness improving.

Galabank manager Chapman said: "We want to finish on a decent run and having won on Wednesday we have the chance to build on that quickly.

"We had been playing well without getting wins but we got our noses in front in midweek and saw the game out. Hopefully we can now go on and climb the table."
