Match Preview

Calder starts for Elgin Elgin will have John Calder between the sticks from the start against visiting East Stirling as regular number one Zander Clark is suspended following his dismissal at Peterhead on January 2. Winger Paul McMullan will be included again as a trialist but Steven Edwards, Paul Kaczan, Craig Frizzell and Blair Lawrie will all be absent, although Brian Cameron will return if he passes a Saturday morning fitness test. Borough Briggs boss Ross Jack said: "East Stirling may well be bottom of the league but they did very well against Alloa last week and did very well the last time we played them so we need to give everything to get a win. "Three points gets us right back into things in the top half of the table." East Stirling are again without the suspended Ryan Frances and the injured Jordyn Sheerin as they look for their third win of the season. Experienced defender Iain Chisholm could be involved from the start after making a late substitute appearance on Monday on his comeback to first-team action, with head coach John Coughlin looking for his men to stop giving away early goals. Coughlin said: "It has been a real Achilles heel for us and if we are to enjoy the second half of the season it is something we have to cut out. "Elgin have the potential to be promotion chasers so everyone has to do their job correctly if we are to come down the road with anything from this game."

Match Report

Elgin return to winning ways An excellent second-half performance earned Elgin their first league win since early November as they overcame lowly East Stirling 3-1 at Borough Briggs. Ross Jack's side opened the scoring after 43 minutes, Stuart Leslie sweeping home Mark Nicolson's assist. The hosts were immediately pegged back by a Bradley Coyne penalty, his sixth goal of the season, after Leslie had handled inside the area moments before the half-time whistle. Defender Archibald MacPhee restored Elgin's advantage 17 minutes from time with a stunning 30-yard effort before substitute Jason Crooks made the game safe in the last minute with a low effort after being played in by Craig Gunn. The result moves the Black and Whites to within three points of the play-offs.
