City sweat on Nicolson

Elgin manager Jim Weir has concerns over the fitness of Mark Nicolson as he looks for his side to continue their good start to the season against East Stirling.

Everyone else in the Borough Briggs squad is available for selection.

Ahead of the match, Weir said: "We had a terrific 3-0 success at Arbroath in a game where we created lots of chances and defended really well. We know that if we play like that again then we have a great chance of staying top of the league, which is a great incentive especially as the club struggled last season.

"However, East Stirling always make life difficult and it will be a hard game."

East Stirling head north without Chris Townsley, who has a knee injury, and Ross Gilmour (foot).

Neil McCabe is back in the squad though after serving a suspension in the 1-0 success over East Fife.

Head coach Craig Tully said: "It was a good result to start our season off with but I recognise that we did not create a lot of chances in the game. In saying that any time you win and keep a clean sheet in this league you must have worked hard.

"We will need a similar effort up at Elgin as they will have taken a huge lift from a fine 3-0 win at Arbroath."
