We are looking to extend our unbeaten run to six matches when we head south to take on Berwick Rangers at Shielfield on Saturday.
Stuart McLaren’s men make the journey on the back of a 1-0 win over East Fife in a Scottish Cup second-round replay on Tuesday and have notched up four clean sheets in a row – the club’s best sequence since 1993/94.
On Friday, Berwick named former St Mirren, East Stirlingshire and Stenhousemuir boss John Coughlin as their new manager for a second spell at Shielfield.
Team news: Willie Robertson returns after suspension and Salim Kouider-Aissa is available after coming through an U20 match on Monday. Ross Smith completes a two-game ban and skipper Ross McMillan is absent due to a hamstring injury – he will undergo a scan on Saturday morning to determine the extent of the damage. Phil Johnston and Craig Beattie remain out.
Opponents: Berwick Rangers parted company with manager Colin Cameron – who had been in charge since January 2014 – in the wake of last weekend’s 4-1 defeat at Montrose. The Borderers are seventh in the table – two points outside the top four – but have been strong at home in Ladbrokes League 2 this season, with three wins, two draws and just one defeat.
Past meetings: Berwick were 3-1 winners at Forthbank on August 22, which remains their only away victory this season. Our last visit to Shielfield was in January 2014 when we slumped to a 4-0 defeat, although we did draw 1-1 there earlier that season. The two visits in 2012/13 saw us lose 4-1 and 1-0 and our last victory south of the border was 1-0 in October 2004 thanks to a Scott McLean penalty.
