Elgin problems mount
Elgin's starting XI against League Two leaders Peterhead will have a makeshift look about it after Mark Nicolson joined the club's lengthy injury list.
Nicolson has a hamstring problem and will be on the sidelines along with Brian Cameron (foot), David Niven (toe), Paul McMullan (ankle) and Jamie Masson (knee).
City manager Barry Wilson said: "We will have players out of position and some kids that will just be chucked in. It is not ideal against anyone let alone the league leaders.
"There is no pressure on the youngsters that play as we need a miracle to make the play-offs now."
Peterhead will be without Callum MacDonald and David Cox.
MacDonald has a knee injury and Cox is nursing a foot problem.
The Blue Toon streaked eight points clear at the top of the table when they defeated second-placed Annan in midweek.
Manager Jim McInally is refusing to take Elgin lightly, however, as he explained: "There is a historic rivalry between these sides and that will get them fired up for this game.
"Any team that has Dennis Wyness, Shane Sutherland and Craig Gunn in it has goals in them so we need to be on our guard.
"It was a strong performance against Annan, probably our best of the season, and a repeat would be very welcome."
