Elgin seek return to winning ways against struggling Stirling

Elgin manager Jim Weir has a full squad at his disposal as he looks get his side back to winning ways on Saturday.

Having won their first two league matches of the season the Moray Men were turned over by East Fife last time out and are hoping to put that right with the visit of Stirling Albion.

With no injuries to disrupt him, Weir has already pinpointed the area his side need to improve.

He said: "We have Craig Gunn bang in form however we never got the ball up to him often enough (against East Fife). Hopefully we can do that in this game.

"We earned a Petrofac Cup win over Stirling earlier this season but they gave us a lot of problems so we need to be wary."

Winless Stirling Albion have had another tough week.

Boss Stuart McLaren has seen Mark Staunton depart, Jon-Paul McGovern asking to follow him out of the door and Craig Beattie ruled out due to a hamstring injury.

Darren Smith is also injured and Kevin McKinlay is suspended but Phil Johnston is over a knock and will feature.

Assistant manager Martyn Corrigan said: "We need a win just to settle things down.

"Having come close to getting one in a trip to Elgin earlier in the season we know that we are in with a chance of achieving that in this game."
