Edinburgh City defender Ryan Porteous available for Arbroath game

Defender Ryan Porteous is available for Edinburgh City's home encounter with Arbroath but Nico Gibson has been ruled out.

Manager Gary Jardine said: "I made seven changes to our line-up at Annan last weekend and we played really well, especially in the second half, so I am not planning as many changes for this game.

"We came back into that game to get a 1-1 draw and while we were pleased with that, we are still looking for our first win. Beating Arbroath will be difficult, but our confidence is growing so you never know."

Arbroath manager Dick Campbell has a full squad to choose from as the Red Lichties look to secure their first win in four games.

Campbell said: "We have not won as many games as we would have liked because we are not turning chances into goals. We have good strikers in the team and I am sure once they get one they will go on a good run of scoring.

"We have worked hard in training this week and hopefully they will lead to goals against Edinburgh City as this is a real banana skin of a game."
