The Shire sweat on Zufel's availabilityEast Stirling are awaiting international clearance for Philipp Zufel ahead of their clash with Clyde.Providing there are no complications with his move from Germany, Zufel will go straight into the line up.The Shire also welcome Paul Quinn back after injury, but on-loan defender Michael Dunlop has been ruled out after he picked up a knock at training.He joins Jamie Benton and Craig Donaldson in the treatment room, while Craig Herd is a major doubt after injuring his hand at work.Head coach John Coughlin said: "Philipp joined us and I will have no hesitation in pitching him in if we can as he has played at a decent level.""Whatever side we put out we simply have to follow up our first win of the season last week with a second win."Iain Gray returns for Clyde as they travel to East Stirling.The defender's availability means boss Jim Duffy has no injury or suspension worries to contend with ahead of the clash.The Bully Wee lost 1-0 to Queen's Park last Saturday and Duffy knows what his men must improve on if they are to pick up full points.He said: "We were not good enough in the final third at Hampden as we did not show enough composure on the ball. Too often the wrong choices were made or things were too rushed and attacks broke down."Hopefully that message has got over to the players and we will show that against an East Stirling side that we had a good record against last season."
