Match Preview









Double boost for Elgin

Elgin manager Ross Jack is boosted by the availability of Paul Kaczan and David Niven after suspension as he looks for his side to bounce back from four defeats in five games.

Neil MacDonald is still banned and Paul Miller is out due to RAF duty, with Jake Inglis still struggling from the sickness bug that floored him at the weekend.

Jack could give recent signing Blair Lawrie a starting role, as he explained: "Blair came on for the last half hour at the weekend on the wing and he was sensational and has entered my thoughts for a starting place.

"We are not at the desperate stage as yet in terms of our promotion hopes but it is getting really close."

Clyde boss Jim Duffy has striker Willie Sawyers pushing for a starting place after he came on as a substitute against Queen's Park last week following knee surgery.

Duffy also has Latvian midfielder Aleksandrs Gramovics in line for a second `debut`, with Ryan Macbeth and Nicki Paterson both struggling.

They could join Alan Lithgow, Paul McMullan, Gavin Brown and Ally Park on the sidelines.

Duffy has targeted three points as he looks to move Clyde up the table before the end of the season.

He said: "Moving off the bottom is our aim and getting three points at Elgin would certainly help. It will not be easy as they will be smarting after their loss to Annan on Saturday."
