Suspended trio return

Graeme MacGregor, David Greenhill and Michael Bolochoweckyj all return from suspension as East Stirling welcome Montrose to Ochilview.

The trio missed the 1-0 victory over Elgin last weekend but will all be hoping for recalls to the starting XI as John Coughlin's side look to protect their place in the play-off places.

Head coach Coughlin said: "Winning at Elgin has given everyone a real lift after a disappointing run of results. Hopefully we can build on that and stay in a play-off place.

"(Montrose) will be very disappointed at losing two injury time goals on Thursday to go down to Annan. They will be out to make us suffer for it so we need to be on our guard."

Montrose add fit again defender Jonathan Crawford as they look to put that 2-0 Boxing Day defeat behind them.

The Gable Endies are without Colin Wilson, who has a hamstring problem, the suspended Ross McCord and Stephen McNally and Lloyd Young who are absent due to work commitments.

Manager Stuart Garden said: "Our hosts had a good win last weekend whereas our game with Annan finished on a real low. We have to use our disappointment as a motivation to win this one.

"A win would lift us back above East Stirling and would be the perfect, as well as a quick response to losing on Thursday."
