Darryl McHardy back for Elgin

Elgin have defender Darryl McHardy available for the visit of Annan but Mark Nicolson is an injury doubt.

The Borough Briggs side are looking to get back into the title hunt after losing to Berwick last weekend.

Manager Jim Weir said: "We controlled large parts of the game but we gave away soft goals at the beginning and end. We can't afford to do that against an Annan side who are in good form and are looking to get above us in the table.

"Annan possess a lot of threat when they go forward and at set pieces, so we need to match that."

Annan include Steven Swinglehurst for the long trip north after suspension and Jack Breslin is available after international duty with Scotland's Under-19 side.

A calf injury keeps Bryan Gilfillan out while a back problem sees Jordan Morton remain on the sidelines.

Kevin Nicoll and Ryan McStay are doubts, with manager Jim Chapman saying: "Borough Briggs is the toughest away venue in the league but we need to maximise our points between now and the end of the season so we will be looking to win.

"In terms of the title and the play-offs there is little recovery room for any side now that loses a game, so it really is crucial."
