Stirling must look to build on Cup success without McMillan and Johnston

Stirling will be without injured duo Ross McMillan and Phil Johnston for their home game against Elgin.

McMillan misses out due to a hamstring injury and Johnston is sidelined with a knee problem.

Assistant boss Martyn Corrigan said: "We won through to the next round of the Scottish Cup in midweek when we beat Cumbernauld Colts 6-0, whereas Elgin lost to Raith Rovers last Saturday.

"They will have been disappointed by that and will be determined to bounce back straight away.

"Our performance against Cumbernauld was a huge improvement on our last league game at Queen's Park. We need to maintain that high level."

Elgin welcome back on-loan pair Mark Hurst and Kyle MacLeod, who were not given permission to play in the Scottish Cup defeat to Raith by respective parent clubs St Johnstone and Ross County.

Liam Gordon is struggling with a knee injury and Jamie Duff remains sidelined with a groin problem.

Manager Jim Weir said: "It was a disappointing outcome (in the Cup), but we have to be pleased with how we played against a full-time side.

"We created plenty of chances, however we were not clinical enough in front of goal.

"If we can show that clinical nature at Stirling we may just start getting our away form right."
