Greig McDonald’s men make the long haul north to Elgin on Saturday as we look to build on last week’s 2-0 home win over Albion Rovers. It’s only the second meeting between the teams this season after the December 14 clash at Fortbank was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch and rearranged for next month.
Team news: Graham Weir returns after a one-match ban but David McClune, Ross Forsyth, Chris Smith, Phil Johnston and Dale Fulton are all injured and Jamie Bishop is missing due to work commitments.
Match facts: We go into the game in fifth spot but are only two points behind second-placed Annan. Jordan White has scored in three of our last four games to take his tally for the season to 13 goals. We have won just one of our last 10 away outings, against bottom club Queen’s Park in January. Elgin remain ninth in the table despite giving Barry Wilson his first victory as manager last week, 3-2 away to in-form Berwick. Their home record this season is five wins, two draws and five defeats.
Past meetings: We lost 4-0 at Borough Briggs on September 28 but claimed a 2-1 win there almost exactly a year ago thanks to two stunning goals from Kieran McAnespie. The other games last season saw Elgin win 3-1 at home and 4-1 at Forthbank before a 1-1 draw in Stirling in April.
