Macca back for Fifers

East Fife defender Darren McCormack, who missed out on the midweek 1-1 draw with an ankle injury, will return as his side look to get the better of Third Division Berwick in the second leg of their Irn-Bru Scottish Second Division play-off semi-final.

New Bayview boss Billy Brown has told his men that if they put in a solid 90 minutes they will face make the play-off final.

He said: "We played really well in the first half at their place and should have had more than the one goal to show for it.

"In fact we could have been three-up.

"The second half was different and we were not so good and we let them back into things.

"If we hit a high level and stay there we will see off Berwick."

Berwick will be without defender Chris Townsley.

Townsley lost his appeal against his dismissal for post-match comments in the Third Division game against Clyde last month and is suspended.

Dean Hoskins is a major doubt due to a facial injury, while Marc Lancaster (back) and Dene Droudge (knee) remain sidelined.

Borderers boss Ian Little said: "I'm hoping that Chris' absence does not hurt us too much as they are a big strong side, who are really effective at set-pieces.

"We're going into this game better prepared than we did the first one as I learnt a lot in that meeting.

"This game will be incredibly tense and no doubt the side that handles that best will go through."
