Triple blow for Stirling

Bottom of the table Stirling Albion entertain Elgin having been hit by a triple suspension.

Player-manager Greig MacDonald is out because of a touchline ban and goalkeeper Sam Filler and defender Gary Thom were dismissed in the 5-2 defeat by Annan last Saturday.

To add to McDonald's problems player-coach Shaun Fagan left by mutual consent on Thursday, Kieran McAnespie and Danny Ashe are out injured and Daly McSorley is missing through illness.

McDonald said: "We are low on numbers but we showed at Annan when we went down to nine men that we have a terrific spirit and we will need that again against Elgin.

"If we play with that spirit and with 11 men we can do something."

City make the trip on the back of a seven-game unbeaten run.

David Niven (knee) and Mark Nicolson (hamstring) need late checks before manager Ross Jack settles on his line-up.

Jack said: "They have a 50/50 chance of playing so it will be a late call.

"I am not getting taken in by Stirling's position in the table as they have very experienced players in their ranks and things will face into place for them soon.

"We cannot just turn up and expect to win as our away form is not consistent enough. We have to go out and earn the right to win."
