Elgin without injured midfielder Scott Smith for Clyde showdown

Midfielder Scott Smith remains sidelined with an ankle injury as Elgin prepare for their home clash with Clyde.

Manager Jim Weir, whose side overcame Berwick 4-2 last weekend, said: "Clyde knocked us out of the promotion play-offs at the end of last season so it will be good to meet them again and see where we are in comparison to each other in this campaign."

Clyde's former Elgin midfielder Dylan Easton is out for the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury against Arbroath last weekend.

Jon-Paul McGovern and Jordan Lowdon are also out with knee problems, and manager Barry Ferguson said: "Injuries are part and parcel of football so we just have to get on with it. Elgin away is always a tough game, even with a full squad, so this one will be even tougher.

"We played well to defeat Arbroath last weekend but it would be good if we were not quite so open when we are going forward."
