Donaldson back as East Stirling bid to keep Berwick rockbottom

East Stirling defender Reece Donaldson is available after suspension for the visit of bottom club Berwick Rangers.

Jordan Cairnie is available after injury with only Billy Vidler, who has a knee problem, missing from head coach Craig Tully's plans.

Tully said: "This would be a big one to win and to do so we need to be on our game from the first whistle.

"Against Annan last weekend we never played for the first hour and it cost us the game.

"I watched Berwick in midweek lose at Arbroath and they were unlucky and will be out to make up for that."

Berwick duo Ross Graham and Kieran Ainslie will not travel to Ochilview after being told they no longer feature in recently-appointed manager John Coughlin's plans.

The Shielfield boss has Darren Lavery back in his squad after work commitments kept him out of Tuesday night's 3-1 defeat at Gayfield.

Coughlin said: "I felt sorry for the players as they put in another improved performance in midweek, but ended up with nothing to show for it.

"If we can cut out the mistakes we are making in defence that are costing us goals then we have a chance of getting the win that would kick-start our season."
