McLean departs Elgin ahead of top-of-the-table clash against East Fife

Leaders Elgin host second-placed rivals East Fife without defender Cieran McLean.

McLean joined Highland League side Buckie Thistle this week but boss Jim Weir has no new injury concerns.

Weir said: "We are up against a team that has a very good strike force and who are very good at set pieces.

"I have said for a while now that if you finish this season above East Fife then you will have won the league.

"We are ahead of them just now and it would be great to win this game and continue to be ahead of them."

The Fifers have Stevie Campbell in their travelling party after he recovered from the eye injury that saw him substituted early in last weekend's 3-0 defeat from Queen's Park.

Player-manager Gary Naysmith has challenged his squad to be the first to win at Elgin this season.

Naysmith said: "Elgin's record at home is remarkable as they have not been beaten and have won 10 games, drawn two and only lost six goals.

"We are going up there determined to make up for a disappointing performance and result last weekend.

"All the players have been asked to do is to go back to the form they had been showing."
