Elgin get double boost

Elgin welcome back Mark Nicolson and Cieran McLean when they host East Stirling.

However, injuries continue to rule out Brian Cameron (foot), Paul McMullan (ankle) and Ali McKenzie (foot),

Manager Barry Wilson wants his side to finish their home league games on a high and he explained: "Not only do we want to end our home run with a win, I am still waiting for my first home success since I was appointed.

"We have a rebuilding job to do here and it will be the last game at Borough Briggs for some of our squad and they will want to go out with a win as well."

East Stirling will be missing the injured Ross O'Donoghue (hamstring) and Michael Herd (ankle) for what will be head coach John Coughlin's penultimate game in charge.

Jordan McKechnie is unlikely to feature after missing training.

Coughlin said: "I would like to leave with East Stirling in fifth place and having broken the 50-point barrier. To do that we need to win both of our remaining games and hopefully we can start that off with a success at Elgin.

"We lost last weekend at Berwick despite playing well as we did not have a strong enough cutting edge hopefully we can show that we have one in this game."
