Shepherd in for East Stirling

East Stirling can leapfrog Clyde with a win at Ochilview and will bring in Nathan Shepherd for Jordan Holt.

Holt has returned to St Mirren at the end of his loan spell after scoring Saturday's winning goal in a 2-1 success at Annan.

Captain Kevin Turner looks set to be absent again due to a groin injury, with Scott Maxwell also in the doubtful category with a rib injury.

Definitely out are Rhys Devlin (knee) and Philipp Zufle (ankle).

Head coach John Coughlin is looking for the same again from his men and said: "We did well to win at Annan and as our last three wins have all been away from home it would be great to have a winning performance on our pitch."

Defender Ian Gray is a doubt for Clyde after sustaining a hamstring problem in Saturday's 4-1 defeat from Rangers.

David Marsh (groin) and Kevin Nicol (hamstring) are again ruled out, with manager Jim Duffy looking forward to a more even contest than the one his side had at the weekend.

Duffy explained: "Rangers have better players than the rest of the clubs in the Third Division so they should be beating us.

"However, the game against East Stirling is a much more even contest which will be won by the side that is up for it the most.

"We did show character on Saturday, which was very pleasing, and we can use that to get us a win in this game."
