Connor McLaren injured as Elgin face Stirling Albion

Ladbrokes League Two leaders Elgin have a doubt over on-loan St Johnstone striker Connor McLaren who picked up a knock in a midweek youth game.

Jamie Duff could make his playing comeback after a lengthy spell on the sidelines but manager Jim Weir has warned his men that they will be facing a confident side in Stirling Albion.

Weir said: "Stirling had a great result in the Scottish Cup when they played out a goalless draw with Inverness Caledonian Thistle and they will be boosted by that.

"We went to Arbroath last weekend and won which was a good result. We now need to ensure that we can deliver wins consistently."

The Binos are without skipper Ross McMillan who has a hamstring injury and Kevin McKinlay who is struggling with a hamstring problem.

Assistant manager Martyn Corrigan said: "Holding a team from three leagues above us to a draw was a great result but we face another big challenge in this game.

"Elgin is a venue that we have struggled at to get results but hopefully we can put that right in this game. If we play like we did last Saturday then we will give ourselves a great chance.

"We are not out of the promotion race but we could do with making our presence felt it a bit more."
