Gasparotto banned for Stirling

Stirling are without Luca Gasparotto for the visit of second-placed Clyde.

The on-loan Rangers defender serves a suspension after being dismissed on his debut at Peterhead last Saturday.

Chris Smith remains sidelined with a knee injury while an Achilles problem rules out Jamie Clark, but Bradley Coyne returns after injury.

Manager Greig McDonald said: "When Clyde beat us (earlier in the season) we were poor in the first half and lost two goals but really good in the second. It would be good to get the better of them this time."

Clyde will give defender David Marsh until the last minute to prove his fitness following a hamstring injury.

Goalkeeper Barclay continues to miss out due to an ankle injury but exciting young winger Scott Ferguson is expected to shake off a knock to feature.

Bully Wee boss Jim Duffy is looking for his men to start the way they finished against Albion Rovers last week, as they fought back from two-goals down.

He said: "We were two goals down and hit back for a point with a very good second half performance. That display gives us something to build on and if we hit the same level for 90 minutes we can win."
