Weaver and Walker could return for Stirling
East Stirling hope to welcome back influential midfielder Paul Weaver from illness and defender Alex Walker from a head knock for the visit of an ever-improving Elgin side.
But Derek Ure remains absent, Craig Donaldson, who missed out in the midweek defeat by Arbroath through injury, is again a doubtful participant although former Dundee player Charlie Grant is free to play a third and final game as a trialist.
Assistant head coach David Nicholls is looking for his side to maintain the tempo they start games at.
He said: "We hit Arbroath hard in the opening minutes on Wednesday and got our noses in front and then dropped out of things. We need to get ahead and stay ahead."
Elgin will be looking to show they are definite play-off contenders by winning at Firs Park.
David Niven is available after a ban and he is expected to take the place of Allan Dempsie, who is struggling with a knock.
Strong home performances have moved Ross Jack's men to within three points of fourth place but the Borough Briggs boss knows that to maintain a challenge his side have to win on the road.
Jack said: "We are all delighted with how things are going just now and the next stage of our development has to be about winning away from home.
"Three points would keep our good run going but it will not be easy as East Stirling knock the ball about well.
"We have to pick points up ourselves to keep pressure on the teams above us."
A late goal from Craig Frizzel put the seal on a confident 2-0 away win for Elgin City at East Stirlingshire.
Frizzel scored nine minutes from time to settle the issue as he produced a low finish from Paul Millar's headed knockdown to seal the points for the visitors.
Elgin looked the better side for long spells, and they surged into the lead in the 34th minute when Jake Inglis scored from inside the area with a fine left-footed finish into the corner.
Frizzel's late strike ensured there was no way back, although Kevin Cawley fired close from distance in the second half, as City completed the league double over their hosts.
